|SCRIPTURE TEXT: “And the Church is His body; it is made full and complete by Christ, Who fills all things everywhere with Himself.“–Ephesians 1: 23(NLT) |
Christ fills the Church with gifts and blessings. The Church should be the full expression of Christ, who Himself fills everything. When reading Ephesians, it is important to remember that it was written primarily to the entire Church, not merely to an individual.
Christ is the Head of the Church, and we are the body of His Church. The image of the body shows the Church’s unity. Each member is involved with all the others as they go about doing Christ’s work on earth. We should not attempt to work, serve, or worship merely on our own. We need the entire body.
