“He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church.” Ephesians 1:22
The church is God’s idea from beginning to end. God has ordained the church to be the vanguard of His kingdom. The church is our first line of defense. God has purposed to release His authority to the world through the Body of Christ – the Church. In fact, it is the only thing Jesus promised to build.
An important truth revealed in the above scripture is that all things were forever put under Jesus’ feet via the church (Christ’s body). All things include the principalities and powers that are preventing us from fulfilling the will of God for our lives. The enemy of our soul is under His feet.
In order for us to make sure we are appropriating the authority and power given to the Body of Christ, we must make sure we are properly connected to the body. How can we expect to have the same authority over something that is under Jesus’ feet if we are not connected to the body? As Christians, we do have a relationship with the head (Jesus), but in light of the subject we are considering, the feet are connected to the body – not the head.
Prayer: Thank You, Lord, for shaping my heart to fit in with other believers in my church and city. Father, increase Your work in North Dallas un l Your en re church is one body, one force, one weapon in Your hand against evil. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
