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