TEXT: 1 CORINTHIANS 11: 3-5
3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.
4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head.
5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.
Key verse: 1 Corinthians 11: 3 But I would have you know that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.
By headship, I mean the one leading and overseeing the home, the pastor over the
house, and the Commander-in-chief. This is the man or husband. God gave him
headship by creation, in Christian marriage and the home. The key verse mentions
three heads: God as head over Christ, Christ as head over the man, and the man as
head over the woman. The Father is the head of the Trinity; the Father, the Son Jesus,
and the Holy Spirit. Though they are one and equal, we see here in the redemption
design that the Father is the head of Christ. When Jesus came to the world, He clearly
showed that the Father was His head. The Father was the One that sent Him. He
showed it very clearly. The leader of the Godhead, though one person, is the Father.
Headship was revealed to us through redemption. Someone must be the leader that
commands actions. Others are the followers, although we know the Father, the Son,
and the Holy Spirit are one Person. John 14: 28 Ye have heard how I said unto
you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved Me, ye would rejoice, because
I said, I go unto the Father: for My Father is greater than I. My Father is greater than
I because He sent Me into the world for the purpose of redemption. I have put aside
my equality with Him. I am here to do His will.
Philippians 2:5-9 5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6Who,
being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7But made
Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made
in the likeness of men: 8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled Himself,
and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 9 Wherefore God also
hath highly exalted Him and given Him a name which is above every name: Jesus
laid aside the rank of God He had with the Father from the beginning, took the form
of a servant, and became obedient.
Thought for the day: Headship was revealed to us through redemption.
Song for the day: We are heirs of the Father
Bible reading for the day: Psalm 41-43; Acts 24
