The Head of the Body (Colossians 1:18)

Title: The Head of the Body

Passage: Colossians 1:18

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: September 1, 2019

Christ is the head of the body. The previous verse taught that Christ is supreme over creation. Now we learn that Christ is the head of the church. The headship of Christ is parallel to his eternal preeminence over all creation. Paul is saying something truly great about out Redeemer here. This title, the head of the body, is meant to extol Christ. There is a special relation that Christ has to his redeemed, the people who comprise his church. Paul wants us to understand this, and admire Christ for it. To this end, this morning I want you to see the significance of Paul’s words about Christ.
