A devotional on the book of Ephesians
He is the most controversial person in all of history. More books have been written about him than anyone else. There is no more prominent figure that has turned more heads and raised more eyebrows. Who is he? His name is Jesus.
This Sunday we discussed the supremacy of Jesus. While there are many claiming supremacy in our country and around the world, there is only One who is truly supreme over all. Here in chapter 1 of Ephesians, Paul claims that God has subjected everything under his feet.
What I especially love about this passage is that Jesus is appointed head over everything for the church. Who else would be more fitting for that position than the man who gave his life for the church?
As we strive towards planting a life giving and gospel centered church, let's remember to keep Jesus in his rightful place. Let's remember to keep razor focused on him. After all the church is founded upon him.
So when we sing, we sing to and about him. When we teach God's word, we teach about him. When we gather together, we celebrate how he is at work in each other's lives.
How about for you? Is Jesus first in your life? Is he supreme above all? Be encouraged today. Whether there's not a care in the world, or your world is falling apart, Jesus is ruling and reigning.
In your prayer time this week, be sure to include words of thanksgiving for Jesus' rule and authority over all. Take time to repent and refocus the areas in life where Jesus is not in first place.
