19 And [kai] not [ou] holding [krateo] the Head, [kephale] from [ek] which [hos] all [pas] the body [soma] by [dia] joints [haphe] and [kai] bands [sundesmos] having nourishment

19 and not holding fast to the
head, from whom the entire body, being supplied and held together by the joints
and ligaments, grows with a growth which is from God. NASB
There are two possible
masters in existence, Christ, and the world.You can serve only one.
Christ is the single embodiment
of all that is true and essential in your life.The world is not.
is the single and sole source of all nourishment, support, and provision for
all aspects of ones life. The world is not.
The body, soma, is
the representation of the completed whole of not only ones self being, but
also including all of the environment and circumstances that will ever enter
into or impact ones life.
The human body is a
compilation of many different components, each functioning in their own respective
way, for one purpose, and that purpose is to keep the body alive, healthy, and
Likewise, the body of
Christ is the collection of every believer, every word of doctrine, every truth
from God, specifically designed to support, maintain, and perpetuate the
spiritual stability and prosperity of every believer.
If you choose Christ as
the template for living your life, then your success, happiness, security and
so forth are assured.
If you choose the world
as the template for your life, then failure is your guarantee.
True growth and
prosperity comes only from God.Jesus
Christ controls history.
False growth and
prosperity comes from this world.The
world controls nothing.
Even as we sit on the
sidelines and watch the unraveling of our own economic policies, through the
many czars and grand ideas that seem to be coming out of the woodwork, we do still
have one to whom we can look for deliverance from the almost certain disasters
that lie ahead.
Jesus Christ controls history,
and through Him and Him alone, will the repercussions of the ideas of all of todays world leaders be allowed to send us all into an
economic oblivion, or overruled, or delayed, or turned in a different direction,
because of a barrage of prayers from believers all over the world.
And while leaders will
take the credit for things that seem to go right, or shift the blame for things
gone wrong, Jesus Christ is at all times in complete control over every aspect
of every element, in every persons life, and more.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
