God is in control. Christ the Lord has our time in His hands.

He is in the beginning before time, is in time now, and is in the consummate of time.

In Him is the beginning of life, the now of life, and the consummate of life. In Him is the beginning of love, the now of love, and the consummate of love. In Him is the beginning of hope, the now of hope, and the consummate of hope. In Him is the beginning of faith, the now of faith, and the consummate of faith.

Christ is before us, with us, and ahead of us. His life of love, hope and faith is before us, with us, and ahead of us. In Him life, love, hope and faith has its beginning in us, its now in us, and its consummation in us in His hands.

Christ the Lord has our time in His hands. God is in control.

Christ is our home, our safe refuge. Christ is our home, our place of rest. As He is made Head over all and in all in His body He finds a place to rest and becomes our Rest.

In Christ, He is our foundation. In Him there is no shifting sand of falsehood, only truth. He keeps us firm from all that is false, for He is Truth. Christ keeps us and we find rest.

In Christ, He is our walls. In Him there is no selfishness, only unselfishness. He protects us from all that is without, that which is selfish and soulish, which is of the world and the flesh. Christ protects us and we find rest.

In Christ, He is our roof. In Him there is no evil, only love. He shelters us from the enemy of the air who wars against our souls. Christ shelters us and we find rest.

Christ is our Keeper, He keeps us. May Christ keep us. May Christ be Head in us.

Christ is our Protector, He protects us. May Christ protect us. May Christ be Head through us.

Christ is our Shelter, He shelters us. May Christ Shelter us. May Christ be Head over us.



Within, Without, and to All

Christ is greater than just the sum parts of the whole of His body.

I was reminded again that His fullness is greater than just the individual or some parts of the body. The less we participate in Him the less of His life of love by faith is manifested. This results in a body life of soulish delusion and spiritual weakness, because we are dependent upon our human mind and physical strength.

Christ is greater than just the sum parts of the whole of His body.

As He is Head over all in all He works within, without, and to all, multiplying His work as each member participates by His life, doing the greater works. This results in a body life of reality and spiritual strength, because Christ is our Reality and Strength.

Christ our all and in all.

Christ Jesus our Lord is greater than our expectations, our dreams, our talents, our reality, our behavior, our thoughts, our rationalizations, our customs, our beliefs, our teachings, our theology, our laws, our religions, our holidays, our entertainment, our traditions, our superstitions, our ignorance, our fears, our lucky charms, our omens, our curses, our addictions, our faults, our sin.

“…the Son of man is sovereign…”

“…he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.”

“Jesus has been found worthy of greater honor…”

“God had planned something better for us…”
