God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made Him Head over all things for the benefit of the church. Ephesian 1:22 New Living Translation
Have you ever heard the saying, ” use your head”? It’s a great term and even greater when you apply it to Jesus Christ. To the religious mind it may sound sacrilegious but what you need to understand is that this is the the exact reason Father God sent Jesus and why Jesus agreed to come. Look at John 10:10.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I have come that they may have life, and have it in all its fullness. John 10:10 Berean Study Bible
So what does this have to do with using your Head? EVERYTHING! If you are born again you are a member of the Body of Christ. Jesus Christ is the Head and we the believer are His Body. Without your own head you can do nothing. You can think of things and want thing to be done but without your body hands, feet, fingers etc.. there is not a whole lot your body do. The same is true with Jesus being your Head and we being His Body. Jesus can give orders but without His Body here on the Earth executing His will nothing will get done. Without us praying and doing the will of the Father thru Jesus’s Headship things simply do not get done. Most people want to do the will of God but guess what? In most cases they do not know what to do. Why not? This is because they are trying to use their head instead of their Head (Jesus). Let’s look at another scripture.
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesian 2:l0 New Living Translation
So God the Father has already planned the good things or good works for us to do. Jesus knows what these works or things are and so does the Holy Spirit since they are all One. Jesus talked about this.
All that belongs to the Father is Mine; this is why I said, ‘The Spirit will tell you whatever He receives from Me.’ John 16:15 New Living Translation
So the Holy Spirt receives from Jesus then tell those things to us. Jesus got those things from The Father. As a human being you know that there are many things you do not know in and of your natural self. But you have an anointing from the Holy One and your spirit connected to the Holy Spirit knows all things. Don’t take my word for it take The Word for it.
But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. I John 2:27 KJV
The New Living Translation makes it even clearer.
But you have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives within you, so you don’t need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit teaches you everything you need to know, and what he teaches is true–it is not a lie. So just as he has taught you, remain in fellowship with Christ. I John 2:27 New Living Translation
How valuable is knowing the truth? These days INVALUABLE. How about knowing the truth about what job you should take? That could be valuable. How about knowing what job not to take? Valuable. All these values and benefits are yours when you use Your Head the Lord Jesus.
We will pick this up tomorrow and all week so stick and stay with us.
All the ‘blessed’ to you! Shalom!!!
