The Head Of The Church

“And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.” Ephesians 1:22-23 (NASB)
It is well to keep in mind that we are all followers in the church. Jesus Christ is ultimately the only leader. Those who would lead as ministers, elders, or teachers must demonstrate first of all that they follow Christ. In line with that, it is important that leaders make it their aim to lead where Christ would lead. Their own visions of what the church should be and their own opinions as to what is best for the congregation, must be subordinate to what Christ wants. Leaders must demonstrate that they rely on God’s Word and prayer as their primary tools in fulfilling their responsibilities.
