Christ Loved the Church so much that He Died for the Church To be Born!
25.Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, (Eph5:25)
2.And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma .
13.Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. (Jn15:13)!
Christ the Son of the living God left the heavenly glory and put on flesh because of the love for the Church He carried in Himself from eternity (Eph1:4), He died on the cross to take away her sins, and in His death (sleep) the church was born (Jn19:34)!
The church is the body of Christ and Christ cannot hate His body /church (Eph5:29).
The love of Christ for His Church passes knowledge, ” .to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge…” (Eph3:19)!
Beloved if we would like to know what the church is let’s not look into our minds, let’s not simply gleen our theology , let the Holy Spirit give us the revelation of Christ !
The church was in Christ from eternity, born through His death on the cross , baptized into Christ (Gal3:27) when we believed in Christ! When we see Christ by revelation we see the church of Christ which is His body! Amen.
