Vision of the Body & Our Place In It 3

Back to Message Archive

Jesus saved us into one body. In the book of Ephesians, Paul emphasizes the unity that ought to be in the body of Christ, God's church!

  • 7 One’s (body, spirit, hope, Lord, faith, baptism, God and Father of all)
  • 4 All’s (God of, over, through, in)

There are two measures of your success in the body:
1. How do you present yourself?
2. How do you respond to how others present themselves?
