And He is The Head of the body which is The Church, for He is The Head and The Firstborn from among the dead, that He would be Preeminent in everything, Colossians 1:18 Aramaic Bible in Plain English
But you are the body of The Messiah and members in your places. I Corinthian 12:27 Aramaic Bible in Plain English
God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made Him Head over all things for the benefit of the church. And the church is His body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with Himself. Ephesians 1:22-23 New Living Translation
God has united you with Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made him to be wisdom itself. Christ made us right with God; he made us pure and holy, and he freed us from sin. I Corinthian 1:30 KJV
Wooah!!!! Those four scriptures are POWERFUL!!! They are full of power and wisdom and LIGHT for the believer!!! Please go back and read them all once more. We have been talking about ‘Using Your Head‘ Who is the Lord Jesus Christ. We have also been talking about that we as believers are His Body. You have to get that picture clear to fully understand and benefit from Christ being your Head and you being His Body. What does your head do? It issues order, instructions and commands to your body to do things. Your head (you not Jesus) is the one that tells your body to lift your hand to pick up a glass of water or to put your feet down so you can stand up from a chair. Your head is the thing that makes the decision on what you are going to eat today. Now what does your body do? Your body carries out the commands of your head. The body can only make moves or decisions based on the knowledge or wisdom or guidance of your head. Your body is limited to what your head knows and believes to a certain degree due to your brain. This is why seeing Jesus as Your Head and using Him as Your Head is so important. This is why knowing and renewing your mind to The Word of God is so important.
If you are a believer, Jesus is Your Head and you are His Body. You may not know it or may not be acting on it or like it but it is still true. But as The Word of God says ‘its the truth that you KNOW that says you free not the truth all by itself. If a believer has cold or any other type of sickness symptom trying to operate illegally in their body and they don’t know that their Head (Jesus) has already declared that by His stripe they were healed they will have to suffer thru the days or weeks or months or years of that sickness and depending on what it is they may die from it. All because they did not USE their Head (Jesus). Let’s uncover what it means to use Your Head(Jesus). Your Head has already provided divine health and healing for you. Your Head has already supplied all your needs according to His riches in glory. The Word declared these things. First of all you must understand that Jesus IS The Word. That Bible you have or should have is not something it is SomeOne! The Word and Jesus are One and the same Person. Just as a person is living and alive The Word of God is alive.
For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. Hebrews 4:12 New Living Translation
Your own physical head has a brain and this is how you know who you are and who your friends are and where your house is and all types of other things. You have stored that information in your brain. When you store The Word of God in your mind(brain) and heart by reading it or listening to it it does things. First of all you become familiar with it and then if you spend enough time with it you memorize it. Then if you go further and meditate it then you get revelation power out of it that you can use for your benefit at anytime because it has the power to change things. The Word has power built into it by God to bring itself to pass like a apple seed has all the apples already in it. You know natural things. Jesus knows ALL THINGS. Eventually you will run into something you don’t know but need to know. Using Your Head(Jesus Christ) is a benefit that is available to you to provide preferential treatment, favor(undeserved and unmerited) and wisdom to you to apply to the smallest and biggest things in your life. When you learn to use Your Head(Jesus) Who is The Word this is called walking by faith. You use your car or your house or your cellphone for your own benefit to go places, or live and be comfortable or to contact friends and family anytime you want to. Jesus is there for you as a benefit all the time the same way.
Take sometime to focus on all the things and ways Jesus can benefit you. We will pick this up again in our next segment of this series. As you go about your day be sure to “use Your Head”. He knows everything anyway so you may as well take advantage of Him.
All the ‘blessed’ to you. Shalom!!!
