Thought for the Day by Phil Moon (Vicar)
Ephesians 1:22 "And God placed all things under Jesus' feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church..."
You may have come across this earlier this week if you use the Explore Bible notes. It's magnificent. You could read from v19 to v23 to catch more of mind bendingly extraordinary Saviour in whom we have placed our trust.
But just look at v22 again. "Jesus is head over everything." That is head over all authority on this earth. Trump, Johnson, Putin, Merkel, Macron... - they all have a head who is called Jesus. But it's not just political power. Jesus is head over everything. That is, everything. Everywhere. For all time. Head over Satan, who rages at us and wills us huge harm. But Jesus is head over all rebellion, all evil, even Satan. Then on a clear evening, stop and stare up at the stars. Or on a walk up on the Downs, stop and admire the view. Take time. Meditate on the supreme fact that Jesus, our Jesus, our Lord Jesus is simply, head over everything.
Look at the last 3 words of v22 "...for the church". For you, for me, for his people of all time, for all time. Extraordinary.
Would you take a few moments right now, to stop and worship our Lord Jesus Christ, who is, quite simply and without qualification, "head over everything for the church".
