DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Christ Is The Head Of The Body—The Church
Col. 1: 17-20
What God did through Christ Jesus was not done and will never be done through any being whether dead or alive. The image of the invisible God existed before everything. The firstborn of all creation is the Head of the Church. God was pleased to have all His fullness in Christ. Everything on earth and in heaven would be brought back to God through Christ. This is made possible by making peace through Christ’s bloodshed on the cross. No religious leader, Bishop or Pope has the prerogative to claim leadership over the church but Christ only.
Point of Emphasis: “For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell”.
Prayer Point: Christ Jesus, don’t allow me and my church to be alienated, take the lead in our lives.
