The fullness of him: Ephesians 1.23

“Now the church is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.”

Ephesians 1.23

The theme of the letter is the magnificent universal church. This is Paul’s first mention of the word and he ties it to Christ and his fullness.

The first chapter is all about prayer and praise for God’s work, which is focused in uniting people in the church. Am I united to Christ and to his people? This is central to his will.
