The Body of Christ
A Sermon on Ephesians 4:4-6
There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call—one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. (ESV)
The doctrine of the Church central to New Testament teaching; Paul uses the analogy of the body; the Trinity reflected in the Church; the unity is already there; it is inevitable; what does Paul mean when he describes the Church as 'one body'? the mystical; unseen Church; diversity in unity.
