"The Head of the Church"

“For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.” — I Corinthians 12:12

Head of the Church

 


 

Do you remember putting your face above a headless frame painted to represent a muscle man, a clown, or even a bathing beauty?  Many of us have had our pictures taken this way, and those photos are humorous because the head doesn’t fit the body. 

 

If we could picture Christ as the head of our local body of believers would the world laugh at the misfit?  Or would they stand in wonder of a human body so closely related to a divine head?

 

Don’t forget, dear church, that we are His body, and as such, we are to be in coordination and cooperation with our Head.  If every member will be in harmony with the Head, the body will be in unity with itself!
