The Headship of Jesus Christ: Introduction

And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.

— Ephesians 1:22-23 (NKJV)

God has made Jesus head over all things. How does this affect your personal life, your family, your church – and the Church?


Introduction

Dear friend,

We wish you a blessed 2022. What better way to start this new year than by looking to the Lord Jesus Christ for direction and guidance? God has made Him head over everything! (Ephesians 1:22). The headship of Jesus is reason for thanksgiving. 

Psalm 118 says:
 
Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever.
This is the day the LORD has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.
You are my God, and I will praise You;
You are my God, I will exalt You.
Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever.

(verses 1, 24, 28 and 29 (NKJV))

Because Jesus is the head over everything, we can be full of confidence. This is the year the Lord has made, therefore we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Although we do not know what exactly this year holds, one thing is for sure: the Lord will continue to work towards His purposes of redemption, the restoration of all things.
 
In this new series of teaching messages from Derek Prince, we will consider how the headship of Jesus affects your personal life, your family, your church – and the Church.

We will be sharing two short messages each week, taken from Derek’s audio teaching series, The Headship of Jesus. We trust you will be encouraged, refreshed and motivated by the Lord as you take time to meditate on His Word.
 
Blessings,

DPM UK
