God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made Him Head over all things for the benefit of the church. Ephesians 1:22 New Living Translation
In part one of this series, we talked about primarily how a body works. A head cannot do much without the body and a body cannot do anything with out the head. Jesus is the Head of the Body of Christ and one of the main reasons He came was for the benefit of the Body. So that means that we are to use Our Head. I don’t mean that in a disrespectful way as some may take. As a matter of fact based on my personal relationship with the Lord Jesus I would go so far as to say that God the Father and Jesus may take it as disrespect to not take advantage of what He has provided at such a great cost: His Son’s Life! God the Father is very deliberate. He deliberately sent His Son so that He could obtain many sons and daughters. That is us The Body of Christ.
This is not a new thing with the Lord revealing things to His people. He did it for Daniel. He did it for Joseph. And those are Old Testament saints. Jesus by way of the Holy Spirit is doing the same thing for believers today. I have had the Lord reveal things to me. Things I did not learn from a preacher or anyone else but directly from Him! The Father has not hidden things from us but He has hidden things for us. He longs for us to be hungry for the things of Him and to take the time to spend in the Word and uncover secrets. And when we discover these things they have a generational benefit that last past just us. Look at this scripture.
Wow they belong to us and our children! Have you ever thought how great it would be to be able to sit down every day and talk with Jesus personally? That would be pretty awesome but from Jesus’s perspective when you walk by faith and do it that’s a greater thing than Him sitting down with you physically. How do you do that? You take the time and spend sometime with Him everyday in The Word. The Bible that is sitting on your table or where ever you keep it is not something it is SomeOne: JESUS!
