Today: Who is our Lord in real life?
Passage: Col 1 (NIV)
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 may have the preeminence. (Col 1, NIV)
Christ is /should be the head of the Church, the family and the individual, for every child of God
When we plan things for the Church in our own way, it will collapse
Similarly, Christ is the head of the man, as the man is the head of the family
Today, a good number of people do not agree to this, but the word of God does not change its stand. The man of the house should acknowledge Christ as his head and others in the family need to accept the headship of the man, for things to go in God’s way.
3 But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. (1 Cor 11, NIV)
22 Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. 24 Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. (Eph 5, NIV)
For each individual who has accepted Christ as Lord and savior, Christ is their Lord. There is no such thing as a 50% or a 90% Lordship. Either He is the Lord of all, or He is not your Lord at all!
Many a time, we struggle in life because we try to be our own Lord and master. We better understand that life only becomes more difficult for those who want to live independent of God and others. We need each other; we need God
When certain people die, there is nobody to claim their body. They had family seperated and children are all over the land, each minding their own business.
Don’t we sometimes treat God and His things that way?
It is time to re-acknowledge the Lordship of Christ upon our personal lives, family and Church. We may not be doing as good as we think, in God’s eyes
Have a blessed weekend
Prayer: Lord Jesus, I admit I have not been having you as the real Lord of my life or my family. The altars of prayer and devotion, family prayer and worship, have been broken. Help me to come back to where you want me to be. Amen
