Corpo de Cristo
For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body, so it is with Christ.
Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I do my share for the sake of his body, which is the church, in filling up what is lacking in Christ's afflictions.
And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that he might have the first place in everything.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful.
Now you are the body of Christ, and individually members of it.
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, being joined and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each part, causes the growth of the body and builds itself up in love.
There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call,
For as in one body we have many members, and all the members do not have the same function,
so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.
For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church,
because we are members of his body.
