DIG for Friday the 19th of February…..He is in charge, He is in control; or He should be…..Colossians 1 v 18

I’m sure you don’t need to be told that your head is one of, if not the most important parts of your body.

The brain is in charge, it controls everything we do from thinking to breathing to moving; the brain is the director for the rest of our body.

In this verse Jesus is described as the head of the church, with the church being described as a body.

The church here is rightly defined as the mass of people making up the church, it is not talking about the building that we meet in.

If the church is described as a body, then Jesus is the head.

In this sense He is like the brain, in control, in charge, or rather He should be.

This analogy falls down when we think about our natural body and brain.

Our body has no choice; if the brain communicates and tells it to do something it cannot refuse, it must obey; it has no free will.

We, as a member of the body, as a member of the church, have free will.

Jesus, as our head, can say something and we can choose whether to do it or not.

Jesus, via His Holy Spirit, is talking to us, communication with us, trying to guide us every second of every day.

We choose whether to listen and then choose whether to obey; this is our free will.

I would suggest it is a good idea to let our Head decide what is best for us and go along with His will.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that Jesus is the head of the church and that He knows exactly what is best for me”.

Colossians 1 v 18…..And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence
