“And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself” (Ephesians 1:23, NLT).

It’s been said if you were to find a perfect church, they wouldn’t want you. It’s sad but true that some churches only want you if you are (seem) perfect.

As the head of his church, Jesus doesn’t expect churches to be full of perfection, rather he fills and completes his body by fully living in it, which is what makes it his body in the first place. Because he fills all things everywhere with his presence, he is our perfection, the perfect one in our midst and in us.
