Jesus, The HEAD of the Church

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Philippians 2:3a

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit.

O-bservation:

Paul the Apostle makes it very clear that our purpose as “Followers of Jesus” is not self promotion. Anything that we allow to swell our heads because of personal accomplishment is not in keeping with God’s will.

A-pplication:

Immediately following this command of Paul, he states what having the mind of Christ is like. Then he tells us what Christ was willing to do in obeying the will of His Father. He humbled Himself and died on a cross. Not only was it perhaps the most excruciating way to die in history, but it also carried with it a curse and humiliation and outright shame. When I read this verse, sometimes I think the Apostle Paul wrote it for Western Civilization TODAY! In Colossians 1:18 Paul said, “Jesus is the HEAD of the Church.” Of course we know how He achieved such a lofty position. We in turn are battling the challenge of selfish ambition and vain conceit. May we remember that our Big head must not get in the way of “Jesus, The HEAD Of The Church.”

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus,

This AM, I yield my will and way wholeheartedly to YOU! Amen
