JESUS, THE HEAD OF THE CHURCH | JOE DUKE
Every person in every church and every pastor should never forget a singular, irreplaceable truth: Jesus is the head of the church. Jesus is first in everything. Get that priority confused and you invite the disintegration of what’s most important usually replaced by a pull toward self-importance. As the head of the church, Jesus has promised to build His church. And He invites us to invest our lives together in a cause much bigger than our individual obsessions.
