“Members of His Body, of His Flesh, and of His Bones”

Ephesians 5:30

The apostle Paul seems to stretch language almost to the breaking point describing the union of Christ and his people. Paul tells us that Christ dwells in us and we in him. We died to sin in him. We were crucified with him. We live in him. We are baptized into him and into his death. Christ is the Head and we are the body, bone of his bones and flesh of his flesh. He is the Foundation and we are the building. He is the Husband and we are his wife. For Christ to live is for us to live. For us to live is for him to live. Indeed, we are “the fulness of him that filleth all in all!

      We are one with Christ in all things. — Representatively one with him as our Surety from eternity. — Vitally one with him by grace and faith, as the vine and the branches, as the head and the body are one. — And assuming our nature, living, and dying, and rising again, our Lord Jesus Christ is one with us. He became all that we are, and makes us all that he is. And, now, “as he is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17).
