23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
- The church has becomes the fullness of Christ. What is fullness?
Let’s look at Coca Cola. What is it? Is it the bottle, or is it the liquid inside? Well, it’s the syrupy liquid.
Coca Cola is made up of every ingredient that is perfectly mixed in its required quantities and precise order, to lawfully recognize and labeled it as this reality which we call Coca Cola in contradistinction to anything else in the universe.
- The fullness of God then, describes the very essence, the reality, and the evidence of who God is. It describes every attribute and characteristic that is required, to make God, God, in contradistinction to anything else in the universe.
The church is the fullness of God! The Lord has called upon the church to manifest Him in His very essence and reality. He has also summoned the church to manifest every attribute and characteristic that makes up the essence and reality of who He is. This is called the glory of God, or allowing the invisible God to become accurately identifiable.
- This is why the church is the most powerful institution in the whole universe! This is what separates the church from every other social institution. And yet, she does not recognize it and hence cannot act like it.
