simple anatomy lesson

I have a simple illustration to show you. I was inspired to sketch this out while reading Ephesians 1: 17-23, a passage rich in definition of the Lordship of Jesus Christ!

Verse 22 states that Jesus is the head over everything for the Church; the Church is His body; and God placed all things under Jesus’ feet! So, Jesus is depicted as the supremacy in the illustration; He is the head and is over everything. The Church is connected to the head, Jesus, and is the body. Everything, everything, everything that ever has been, is, or will be, is under His feet. That is great news for the believers, because we are connected to the head and are the body, we definitely are not identified with the stuff beneath His feet.

I don’t think you’re getting it. The children of God should be living a “far above” life. Ephesians 2:4-6 describes God’s rich mercy in that He made us alive while we were still sinners, and He “raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus…”

I don’t know what thing has attached itself to your life, but if it is not part of Christ or His Church, then remind it that it belongs beneath your Savior’s feet. Jesus is far above every title, even titles that haven’t yet been assigned- Christ is above those! Don’t you love being a part of a Savior and Ruler like that? Truly, nothing is impossible with God, because all things must submit to the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ.
