Corpo de Cristo
Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ.
Now I rejoice in what was suffered for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ's afflictions, for the sake of his body, which is the church.
And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.
Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never!
From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called;
For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function,
so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.
After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church —
for we are members of his body.
