|SCRIPTURE TEXT: “Now He is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come. God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church.“–Ephesians 1: 21-22(NLT) |
Having been raised from the dead, Christ is now the Head of the Church, the ultimate Authority over the world. Jesus is the Messiah, God’s Anointed One, the One Israel longed for, the One who will set their broken world right.
As Christians we can be confident that God has won the final victory and is in control of everything. We need not fear any dictator or nation or even death or Satan himself. The contract has been signed and sealed; we are waiting just a short while for delivery. Paul says, in Romans 8:37-38, that nothing can separate us from God and His love.
