Ephesians 1:20-23

Jesus is boss over everything!  The reason this is so is because God, who made everything and everyone, raised Jesus from the dead and sat him on the throne of the universe!  This is a statement of the sovereignty of Jesus Christ.  Paul says the same thing in the book of Philippians.

[9] Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, [10] so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, [11] and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

(Philippians 2:9-11 ESV)

Everyone human being on the planet is obligated to surrender their lives to the Lord Jesus, and find their lives in Him!  He is truly the boss of everything!

So all of this is amazing enough.  But then Paul makes an even more amazing statement in v.22-23.  “And (God) gave Him as head over all things to the Church, which is His body!”  God gave this Jesus, who is boss over everything, to us, to the believers who are the Church.  Can we even fathom what that might mean?  The King belongs to us, or is given to us in some amazing, foundational way!  That’s enough to brighten your day, or your eternity!

We have a deep, intimate and personal relationship with the boss of everything!  Live in the joy of that truth today and find yet another reason to rejoice this Christmas season!
