At the Head

Minister Joseph Shepherd

“Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you. But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.”

1 Corinthians 11:1-3

As I marinated on previous messages, I had a moment of self-reflection, and the Lord placed upon my heart to share regarding the revelation that was shown to me. It’s not something that’s deeply profound, but this scripture in 1 Corinthians came across to me. In reading, I was able to do a self-check on who I am as a priest in my own household. Physically speaking, I am evaluating what is going on around me while praying on how I can improve to grow in the kingdom. I’m amazed at the emotion I felt from the Father while asking myself these questions. If God were to look down on us as a whole, would he find us walking in faith, fasting, and giving up the cares of this life? Do we really trust him like we say we do? In me being a dad, I am really starting to see just how wicked this world is, and I find myself wondering how I can best prepare my son to endure what may come in the future. I will continue to pray over the youth and the upcoming generations so that they may have endurance while being in the earth.

Furthermore, not only does this narrative just fit the Fathers of a household, but we are priests to our own Earth suits. We are the ones who govern what comes in and out from our bodies to share. In this, what we should pay the closest attention to is our conversation concerning the things of the world, and whether or not it involves ministering/ praying for our brethren. Guard your temples, because most of everything that can be changed starts within us! We as individuals have to make vital decisions in order to change and refrain from clinging to those things that are in this world. Subsequently, when we remove ourselves, Elohim can move our mind, body, and spirits.

This is the beauty of Faith; when we surrender we show the Father that we desire to lean on him for all things. Remain in a place of humility; always willing to serve others before we serve ourselves. Continue to pray and ask the Father to let there be more of him and less of us so that Holy Spirit and Grace can flow freely within us. Amen
