Corpo de Cristo
For as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, being many, are one body; so also is Christ.
Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and fill up on my part that which is lacking of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body’s sake, which is the assembly,
He is the head of the body, the assembly, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things he might have the preeminence.
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body, and be thankful.
Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.
Don’t you know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? May it never be!
from whom all the body, being fitted and knit together through that which every joint supplies, according to the working in measure of each individual part, makes the body increase to the building up of itself in love.
There is one body and one Spirit, even as you also were called in one hope of your calling,
For even as we have many members in one body, and all the members don’t have the same function,
so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another,
For no man ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, even as the Lord also does the assembly,
because we are members of his body, of his flesh and bones.
