And he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fulfillment–to bring all things in heaven and on earth under one head, even Christ… (Ephesians 1:10).
I like my Study Bible.
It has all kinds of useful information in it.
For example, it tells me that the word Paul used here that is translated head has multiple meanings. It can mean “head,” as in, you know…your head.
It can mean “authority,” which is how I’ve always read this verse. God’s plan is for every knee to bow and every tongue to confess Jesus as Lord.
Amen to that!
The word can also refer to the sum of a column of figures, the reconciling of various numbers that may not seem to relate to one another.
So, Jesus makes a senseless world make sense.
Feeling like life is a little too random, Beloved? Seem like the equation doesn’t balance?
Fear not; in the end, it all adds up
Happy Friday, Beloved
