DAY 31 SATURDAY: OCTOBER 2020

JESUS CHRIST IS FAR ABOVE ALL THINGS!

Which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come (Ephesians 1:20-21).

There is nothing on earth, in heaven and in the abyss that could be used to compare the divinity, supremacy and authority of Christ Jesus in life. The Bible says in the opening text that which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that Jesus Christ is indeed far above all things in life. Whoever wants to live above all things should endeavor as a matter of necessity carries the divinity of Jesus Christ in his life forever.

The Bible declared it vividly to us in Philippians 2:10, “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth.” Therefore, the Name of Jesus Christ is of course greater than all things put together in life both here and even beyond. There is no gain saying to the fact that the Name of Jesus Christ is far above all things in heaven, on earth and even in the abyss in life. Jesus Christ is far greater than anything one could ever think of or even imagine in his life. A life that is devoid of Jesus Christ which is above all things is indeed a life that is trapped and enslaved in sin forever.

That is the reason why a Christian should live a life of boldness and confidence in the Lord because he is part and parcel of the body of Jesus Christ in life. In fact, because he is member of the body of Christ which is the church; therefore, Jesus Christ has also subjected all things under his feet in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Ephesians 1:22, “And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church.” In fact, everything in life had been put under the feet of a Christian because he is part and parcel of the body of Jesus Christ in life. The body of Jesus Christ which is the church is also above all things in life forever.

Daily Tip: Every Christian should take note of the fact that Jesus Christ is far above all things and he is part and parcel of the body of Jesus Christ, the Church of God which is also above all things in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: And raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:6).
