SCRIPTURE READING:
Ephesians 4:11-16

So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.

SIGNIFICANCE:
The LORD JESUS CHRIST is the Commander-in-Chief of all things, especially His Church.

Dear Father, I bow before Christ, the glorious Head of all creation, including the Body of Christ (His Church). I exalt Christ that everything comes from Him and is sustained by His perfect wisdom and authority. He is the Head of all languages, tribes, peoples, nations, kings, kingdoms, powers and generations. I rejoice that as Head of His Church He is the one and only sovereign King, Lord, Master, Leader, Ruler, Teacher, High Priest, Majesty, Shepherd, I AM and infinitely more over me and all His people. Glory to Jesus that all things in our lives are under Him, to Him, on Him, by Him, with Him, in Him, for Him and through Him. I pray You will help us speak the truth in love with each other, and in all things grow up unto our Head. May we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ (our Head). Every part of my life is absolutely dependent upon Jesus, my Head. I pray these things in His name. Amen.
