Memory Verse: 

And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. Colossians 1:18 (KJV)

Bible Reading: 

 Ephesians 4:1-12 (NIV)

1 As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.

2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.

3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.

4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism;

6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

7 But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it.

8 This is why it[a] says:

“When he ascended on high,

he took many captives

and gave gifts to his people.”

9 (What does “he ascended” mean except that he also descended to the lower, earthly regions[c]?

10 He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe.)

11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers,

12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up

Open Heaven 26 April Message

It is common knowledge that the Church is meant to be for people called out by God. Christ is the Head of the Church because the most important part of anybody is the head.

The head is so important that when you want to take a passport photograph, all you take is a picture of your head.

The heart, kidney and liver can be transplanted, but there has never been a successful head transplant.

Is Christ your head? If your answer is yes, is He your vision? The eyes are a major part of the head and we know how important vision is. Where there’s no vision, the people perish (Proverbs 29:18).

Is Christ your hearing? If Christ is your hearing, then your faith will continue to grow because Romans 10:17 says faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. That Word is Jesus Christ (John 1:1, John 1:14).

That will lead us to the nose. What you breathe in and out counts because according to Acts 17:28, “For in him we live, and move, and have our being…

You are alive as a Christian if you’re breathing in and breathing out Christ.

Who controls your brain? What do you allow your mind to dwell on? Proverbs 23:7 says, “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…Phil ippians 4:8 tells us the kind of thoughts we should have: pure, lovely, virtuous, good and praise-worthy thoughts.

Who controls your mouth? What do you eat? Who do you praise — God or man? John 4:24 says, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth“.

How do you pray? Who controls you in prayer? John 14:14 says, “If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it“.

You will be a successful Christian if Christ is your Head – the Controller. Our prayer should thus be, “Christ, please be my head”, because if all is well with the head, you can handle whatever is before you.

If something goes wrong with the head, every other thing will go wrong.

Open Heaven Hymn:
