Corpo de Cristo
For as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so also is Christ.
Now I rejoice in what I suffer for your sake, and in my turn am filling up in my flesh what was lacking in the afflictions of Christ for the sake of his body, that is, the church.
And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that he may be first in all things,
Let the peace of Christ be umpire in your hearts. For this you were called into one body. And be thankful.
You are the body of Christ and individually members.
Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never!
from whom the whole body framed together and strengthened by what every joint supplies vigorously, in the measure of each, makes growth in building itself up in love.
There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called with one hope that belongs to your calling,
For as in one body we have many members and the members do not all have the same function,
so we who are many are one body in Christ and individually members of one another.
for no one ever hates his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church,
for we are members of his body.
