And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all .—Ephesians: 1:22-23
Congratulations, friends, for completing the first week of our 12 days of Christmas “Discovering Jesus.” devotionals! You’re over one-half of the way there!
Have you noticed how competitive the world is, today? I certainly see it, all the time. Everyone around me always seems to be working toward a better title at their job, or a higher place of authority among their peers and friends. And we all have, in us, the desire to be the ultimate boss of our own space. And while this urge to be the best is not bad, our desire to conquer and control through sin and through the world is not what our Father wants for us!
Jesus knows that this is a desire that man battles every day; He speaks often of acting in Love toward ourselves and toward one another, insisting that everything that we do is out of Love, just like everything He does is out of love for us!
The One who is the ultimate boss is Jesus. Jesus is the Head of all things, ya’ know? And that means that we must give all things to Him.
Think about this: can you make any decisions without the brain? Of course not! When you say or do anything, your head signs off on it first, choosing to signal the rest of the body so you fulfill that command. Even the things that we don’t actively think about are controlled by our heads!
In this same way, all of your decisions should pass through the head of your life… Jesus! By doing that, you guarantee that what you say or do is more Christ-like and pleasing to God than anything you decide on your own.
Remember that Jesus is the Ultimate Authority; He has the power to change, today! I pray that you find encouragement in that truth, and that you are able to submit to Jesus as the head of all things!
Thank You Jesus.
