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. And what else is the church? 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.
Colossians 1:18 says Jesus is the head of his body ~ the only head ~ on earth and in heaven.
And what does Jesus think of the church? 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.
Why would anyone not want to be part of this? Such love.
Such eternal love.
