The Church which is His Body
A Sermon on Ephesians 1:20-23
that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all. (ESV)
The Church as the Body of Christ; the pictures of the Church in Scripture; the unity of the Spirit; all Christians are part of the Body and are complete only within it; the power comes only from Him; the Head of the Church; the practical meaning of being in Christ; resisting the devil by the power within that comes from Him.
