The body has a head

A body has a head: the position or place of leadership, greatest authority, or honour.

Jesus is our head: Colossians 1:15-18 (The Message) explains how Christ holds it all together:
‘We look at this Son and see the God who cannot be seen. We look at this Son and see God's original purpose in everything created. For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible, rank after rank after rank of angels—everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him. He was there before any of it came into existence and holds it all together right up to this moment. And when it comes to the church, he organizes and holds it together, like a head does a body.’

So, whatever we do and however we do it, we should always be looking to the head of our corporation of life, the manager of our business for living, the headmaster in charge of our learning, the foreman in charge of our working, the director of the institution that is our church, our leader, our chief… looking to that extraordinary human being who is Jesus.

And acknowledging his rightful position in everything we do at every moment of our day.
