' ... ... the church
which is his body,
the fulness of Him that filleth all in all.

Eph. 1:22b,23

It's Hope

'But God, who is rich in mercy,
for His great love with which He loved us
(even when we were dead in sins)
has made us alive together with Christ
(by grace you are saved),
and has raised us up together
and made us sit together
in the heavenlies in Christ Jesus,
so that in the ages to come
He might show
the exceeding riches of His grace
in His kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
For by grace you are saved through faith,
and that not of yourselves,
it is the gift of God,'

Eph 2:4-8

It's Realization

'If then you were raised with Christ,
seek those things which are above,
where Christ is sitting at the right hand of God.
Be mindful of things above,
not on things on the earth.
For you died,
and your life has been hidden with Christ in God.
When Christ, who is our life, shall appear,
then shall ye also appear with Him in glory.'

Col 3:1-4

It's Life Now

'For the grace of God
that brings salvation
has appeared to all men,
teaching us that having denied ungodliness and worldly lusts,
we should live discreetly, righteously and godly, in this present world,
looking for the blessed hope,
and the appearance of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,'

Tit 2:11-13

Agreed!

The church is the body of Christ and Christ is the head of the Church. By that I mean the true church is the real believers, not those who just claim a membership in a building.
