Daily Service: Jesus is the Head of the Church
Twenty Third in the series “Jesus is” – I will include scriptures, references,
graphics, and songs also.
Head of the Church – “And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church.” Eph. 1:22
Since the church is Jesus’ body, He is the head of the church.
Here are some similar figures of speech relating to Jesus’ position of prominence and authority:
Head: The Beginning, Firstborn from the Dead
Jesus is head of the church because He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead.
In the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, Jesus has first place in everything. Therefore, He is head of the church — He has the highest rank in the church (Col. 1:18).
Head: God Put All Things Under Jesus’ Feet
After Jesus rose from the dead, and before ascending into heaven, God gave Him all authority.
Since God gave Jesus authority over all things, Jesus has authority over the church.
The Church is Subject to Christ
Since Jesus is head of the church, the church must obey Him in everything.
A church teaching the doctrines of men is not Jesus’ church. Rather, it’s a man-made church, based on self-made religion (Col. 2:23).
Such was the case with denominations that had already begun in the first century, one example of which is the Nicolaitans, a Gnostic sect (Rev. 2:6, 15). These people had gone too far and did not have God (2 Jn. 1:9).
Brethren who entertain doctrines from other religions, such as the Nicolaitans must repent, or they’ll be lost for eternity (Rev. 2-3).
And churches that adopt the doctrines of men and do not repent, are removed by Jesus as a congregation of His people, and become His enemies.
As Head of the Church, Jesus is the Savior
Jesus is head of the church, being the Savior of the body.
