What The Boss Does


"And God placed all things under His feet and appointed Him to be head over everything for the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills everything in every way" (Eph.1:22-23).

If today's verses look familiar, they are the ones I used on Friday. It is clear that God intended for Jesus to be the head of the church. He's the president, CEO, boss and head honcho all wrapped up into one. All of these descriptions imply authority, which Jesus Himself spoke about... "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me... (Matt.28:18). I think there's even more than just that authority though. Here is one implication we should look at closely. The head of a business, corporation or government entity ought to seek the best interest of those who look to him or her for leadership. Workers who are content with their leaders tend to be much more productive, and isn't that what the boss is looking for? Christ is the wellspring of the church.. He is the source for which its ideals and purposes find their expression. "But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruit of those who have fallen asleep" (1 Cor.15:20). Because He is the firstfruit of those to be raised from the dead, He is the Christian's hope... He did not become head of the church by accident. He earned the headship by modeling the life He wants people to live. He took the final step by giving His life that we might be saved... That's what our boss did, and we have our hope because of it...

Have a great start to your week... Begin it with a RAK or two... Love mark Phil.4:11
