Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
Jesus is the living leader and head of his church. No person can rightfully fill this role. No one but Jesus has earned this position. Jesus is supreme. Even though supremacy is rightfully his because of his divinity, he has earned this supremacy through what he accomplished for us on the cross, in his burial, and through his resurrection. He was alive before there was a beginning. He was the Creator of all that is. He was the one who passed through death victoriously for us. He is the beginning so that he might have supremacy in everything!
Lord Jesus, I ask you to take control of your Church, your Body. Please glorify yourself in us and permeate our leaders’ hearts with your will. We want the world to see your supremacy because of our unity and devotion to you. And Holy God, please glorify yourself in Jesus through the Church. To you, Lord God, and to your Son and our Savior Jesus, be all honor, glory, and praise, now and forevermore. Amen.
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.
