Headship in Three Spheres

1 Corinthians 11:3 – “…Christ is the head of every man.”

That’s individual headship.

Ephesians 1:22 – “…and gave Him as head over all things to the church.”
Colossians 1:18 – “He is also head of the body, the church…”

That’s corporate headship.

Colossians 2:10 – “…and He is the head over all rule and authority.”

That’s universal headship.

Daniel 7:27 – “Then the sovereignty, the dominion and the greatness of all the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be given to the people of the saints of the Highest One; His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all the dominions will serve and obey Him.”
