CHRIST THE HEAD
Robert E. Hanna
Scripture Reading: Colossians 2:12, 19
We live today in the dispensation of the grace of God-not the dispensation of the law, not the dispensation of the kingdom promise but the dispensation of the grace of God. Those who are saved by God's grace are a very special people; we are components of a distinctive union of believers; we are members of the Body of Christ, which is His Church. "He gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works" (Titus 2:14). Positionally, we are blessed above all former generations. Christ dwells within us. "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places IN CHRIST' (Ephesians 1:3). Not only are we in Christ but Christ is in us: "Christ in you, the hope of glory" (Colossians 1:27b).
More than this, the entire trinity dwells within us! "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the [HOLy] SPIRIT OF GOD dwelleth in you?" (I Corinthians 3:16) ... "Know ye not that your body is the temple of the HOLY GHOST which is in you ... ?" (I Corinthians 6:19) .. .As if this not enough, "Our conversation [citizenship] is in heaven" (Philippians 3:2oa). We have full assurance thatthe Lord will take us there physically (in spiritual bodies). "When Christ, Who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with Him in glory" (Colossians 3:4). "Know ye not that your bodies are members of Christ?" (I Corinthians 6:1sa) ... Who then is Christ to us? "[God] hath put all things under His feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, WHICH IS HIS BODY" (Ephesians 1:22).
