Daily Verses : Colossians 1:15-23.
Key Verse : Colossians 1:18:” 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.”
A body that is complete has a head and none of its members are missing. For example, the brain and the five senses that exist in the head will control every organ in the body, which enable a person to move and perform activities. If someone has a brain and senses that are malfunctioning, the body and its members will not be able to perform their tasks well. The same goes for our lives as Christians. Jesus is the head of the body, which is also His church. Jesus’ desire is to control every aspect of His church’s body, who are also His children. However, many of its members do not want to be controlled. Because of this, the body experiences hardships, sufferings, problems, and even destructions. The Lord Jesus, who is the Head of the body, is coming soon and He is preparing His body to life harmoniously with the Head and other members. As a member of the body of Christ, we should fix and submit our lives to the Head, who is Christ. So when the time comes, we can be united with Jesus, the Head, for eternity.
Our love to Christ and to the other members of the Body of Christ are the foundation of unity and harmonious life.
