or ministry, it is in the ministry; or he that teacheth, in teaching; or he that exhorteth, in exhortation; or he that giveth, with a single eye; he that presideth, with diligence; he that showeth mercy, with cheerfulness.

Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? then taking the members of Christ, shall I make them the members of a harlot? it could not be so. Do you not know that he who is joined to the harlot is one body? for it says, They two shall be one flesh. But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit.

The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? Because we, being many, are one bread, one body: for we all partake of one bread.


and what the excellent majesty of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of the power of his might which he has wrought in Christ, raising him from the dead, and seating him on his right hand in the heavenlies, above all government, and authority, and power, and lordship, and every name named, not only in this age, but in the age to come: read more.

Therefore I, the prisoner in the Lord, exhort you to walk worthily of the calling with which you are called, with all humility and meekness, with long suffering, forbearing one another in divine love; endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. read more.
There is one body and one Spirit, as ye indeed are called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and above you all, and in all. And to each one of you grace is given according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Therefore he says, Having ascended upon high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts to the people. But what is that which ascended, except that which descended into the lower parts of the earth? But the one having descended and the one having ascended above all the heavens, that he might fill all things, is the same. And he gave some, apostles; some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; unto the perfection of the saints, in the work of the ministry, in the edification of the body of Christ: until we may all come into the unity of the faith, and of the perfect knowledge of the Son of God, into a perfect man, into the measure of the likeness of the fulness of Christ: in order that we may be no longer infants, tossed by the waves and carried about by every wind of teaching, in the caprice of the people, in their craftiness, pursuant to their method of delusion; but speaking the truth in divine love, let its grow up in him in all things, who is the head, Christ; from whom the whole body, being assimilated and knitted together through every joint of the supply, according to the working in each several part, makes increase of the body in the edification of itself in divine love.

Wives, be submissive to your own husbands, as to the Lord, because the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ is also the head of the church, being himself the saviour of the body. But as the church is submissive to Christ, so also let the wives be to their husbands in everything. read more.
Husbands, love your wives with divine love, as Christ also loved the church with divine love, and gave himself for her; in order that he might sanctify her, having purified her by the washing of water through the word, in order that he might present to himself the glorious church, having not spot or wrinkle or any of such things; but that she might be holy and blameless. So the husbands ought to love their own wives with divine love as their own bodies. The one loving his own wife is loving himself: for no one ever yet hated his own flesh; but he nourishes and cherishes it, as Christ also the church; because we are members of his body: on account of this a man shall leave his father and mother and cleave unto his wife: and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak in reference to Christ and the church. Moreover you also each one thus love his own wife with divine love as himself; and that the wife also reverence the husband.
