The apostle Paul frequently referred to the church as a body, illustrating that the whole is made up of many different parts functioning together as one. Preaching from Ephesians 4, Alistair Begg helps us understand that our union with Christ is what makes us one body. The foundation of our unity isn’t membership in an organization but the Holy Spirit, who indwells each believer. Those who are in Christ are called to a unity that defies cultural expectations and testifies to the power and grace of God, who makes us one in Christ.
4There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— 5one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
