Ephesians 1:22-23 (JDV)
Ephesians 1:22 And he subjected everything under his feet and appointed him as head above everything for the congregation,1
Ephesians 1:23 which is his body, the fullness of the one who fills all things in every way.
his body and fullness
If the congregation is the body of Christ, and everything is under his feet – where is everything in relation to us? That’s right, it’s under our feet as well. We may not feel that way, and we may have experiences that discourage us from thinking like that – but that is the ultimate reality.
It is important to remember that when we pray. We pray as members of the body of Christ, and therefore can approach the throne in heaven with confidence. We are not just the body, we are also the fullness. Many of God’s creatures can reflect his image partially, but we are destined to reflect it fully.
Lord, show us how to function as your body, and reflect the fullness of your image.
