Today's Verse : Ephesians 4:16


April 16, 2012

From him [Christ] the whole body, joined and held together by
every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as
each part does its work.
-- Ephesians 4:16

Ephesians and Colossians emphasize that no human being, or even
group of human beings, is head of the Church. Jesus is head of the
Church. He sets our direction. He is our example. He is our goal
for ministry. In addition, Jesus also arranges us in his Body as he
chooses, gives us gifts to use to bless each other and God, and
holds us together so that we can effectively serve as his presence
in the world. So let's set our hearts on Jesus. Let's use his life
and love to inspire us and show us how to serve. Let's give him our
allegiance and loyalty. He alone is head of his Body, the Church.
Let's let him lead!

Righteous Father, thank you for Jesus. Thank you for his
example, service, obedience, love, and sacrifice. Thank you for his
resurrection, exaltation, power, and presence today in your Church
and in my life. Father, please use me, and my brothers and sisters
in Christ with me, to do his work in our world and share your grace
with all who are lost. In the name of the Lord Jesus I pray. Amen.
