Tuesday 1/22 ~ Me radiant?

The scripture for today, January 22, is Ephesians 1:22 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:

Love Letters of Jesus & his Bride, Eccelsia-THUMBNAIL“And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.”

What makes this so interesting is that the church is the body of Christ. What else is the church?

Colossians 1:18 says… the church has only one head on earth and in heaven ~ Jesus.  (Some people claim to love his head but not his body. Hmmm.)

Matthew 16:17-18 says…the church is the kingdom of heaven.

Ephesians 5:25 & 32 says…the church is his bride.

Revelation 21:2, 9-10 says…the church bride is the new Holy City Jerusalem.

And what does Jesus think of the church? You already know this one. Ephesians 5:25-27 says he loved the church so much that he gave himself up for her, to make her radiant ~ no stains, no wrinkles, no blemishes.

Oh, that last part: I must have missed it before. Me radiant? Human, sinful me radiant? And no stains, Lord?  No stains too?
