because all the essence of deity inhabits him in bodily form.
We have all received one gracious gift after another from his abundance,
God has put everything under the Messiah's feet and has made him the head of everything for the good of the church, which is his body, the fullness of the one who fills everything in every way.
until all of us are united in the faith and in the full knowledge of God's Son, and until we attain mature adulthood and the full standard of development in the Messiah.
For God was pleased to have all of his divine essence inhabit him.
