THE BODY OF CHRIST: GOD’S ULTIMATE INTENTION FOR OUR LIFE

the-body-of-christ
Ephesians 1:22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, 23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

You have been destined by God’s ultimate intention for your life as the Body of Christ. God has had a claim on your life (like Jeremiah in Jeremiah 1:5) prior to birth, marriage, children, business pursuit or career. It actually began before the foundation of the world and was a part of the hidden mystery of the Church once kept secret but now revealed Ephesians 3:1-11.

In this Body – also called the Church:

1. Jesus is the Head Ephesians 1:22,23; Colossians 1:18.
2. It is a Body of many members 1 Corinthians 12:12,14,27.
3. All members have a place 1 Corinthians 12:18
4. All members have a function Ephesians 4:16.
5. All members have gifts and grace for their place and function Romans 12:6; 1 Peter 4:10.

Knowing these truths should make us realize we are not insignificant; we are not an accident; our life has purpose and meaning; and God included us in the greatest plan on Earth to bless every living human being Jesus died for.
