THE CHURCH 2
Hi friends! The last post we started looking into God’s word to see what He , through other writers tells us about His Church. Let us continue that study by opening your Bibles to the following verses. Ephesians 1:19-23; 5:23. These verses tells us that Christ is the head of the church and that He loves the church! Now let us turn to Acts 20:28 and Hebrews 9: 11-14 . These verses say that the church was purchased by the blood of Christ! 1 Cor.6: 11And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. Ephesians 5: 25-27. The church is sanctified and cleansed by Christ!
Romans 7:4-6; Ephesians 5:24 tell us that this great body of believers is subject to Christ; He is to be given all honor and all glory for the work He has done. Ephesians 3:10To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God.
Colossians 3: 16Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. We the church should continually be in the attitude of prayer and praise, letting our little lights shine so people can see the glorious light of Jesus!
