Ephesians 5:23b “…CHRIST also is the head of the church, HE Himself being the SAVIOUR of the Body.”
About Face! (Turn your eyes upon JESUS)
While possessing two Achilles heels with Deficit’s attention, one makes mention of their lack though never speaking. So it is with Self again, within the mirror of written Scripture where I see my SAVIOUR‘s grace outpoured…exceeding.
For HIS face is there revealed through such crimson words’ conversion! Thus displaced are Lack’s complaints by Heaven’s message! Then reflecting such within me, so HIS image, overwhelming, has transformed these thoughts to see…CHRIST’s perfect Presence!
Yes, our GOD and KING! YEHSHUA WHOSE indwelling heals perceptionsof ourselves and those surrounding without fail! CHRIST is able, then prevailing, through HIS visage and deep footprints…for our purpose to be focused as The Faithful!
As HIServant eternally thankful for HIS Vision,
Devotional: Colossians 1:18 “HEis also head of the Body, the church; and HE is the Beginning, the Firstborn from the dead, so that HE Himself will come to have first place in everything!”
“About Face!”, Beloved! Indeed our view of self and others is rampantly skewed by Pride, Envy, Contempt, Disgust and on and on the list goes.
But to gaze wholly upon Love’s visage; HIS image and most beautiful face, one must cling to the mirror of HIS WORD. Comparing our walk daily with the HEAD of our lives, JESUS CHRIST!
Colossians 2:18-19 “Let no one keep defrauding you of your prize by delighting in self-abasement and the worship of the angels, taking his stand on visions he has seen, inflated without cause by his fleshly mind, and not holding fast to the HEAD (CHRIST), from whom the entire Body, being supplied and held together by the joints and ligaments, grows with a growth which is from GOD.”
As such, our daily walk and hourly thoughts cannot stray into giving greater attention to ourselves. This means, oh Self, we cannot cling to past faults and failures no more than we can reassign those of others back to them!
HE instructs us to seek HIS Kingdom and to think on things above. So press onward without your baggage nor stopping to pick up others…for any reason!
1 Chronicles 29:11 “1 Chronicles 29:11 “YOURS, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, indeed everything that is in the heavens and the earth; YOURS is the dominion, O LORD, and YOU exalt YOURSELF as head over all!”
What vision! The Almighty! Our HEAD through WHOSE eyes we must look, with sincere humility, constant grace and eternal love.
Hebrews 3:1 “Fix your thoughts on JESUS!” Yes! Turn your eyes towards HIM WHO is above all and reflect HIS face…to all!
Amen and amen!
