We watched “Fast and Furious” #6 last weekend at my urging. Something about the crazy car racing and stunts made me forget the inch by inch mentality of my life. In the end, Vin Diesel reminds the group of superheroes that they are family above all else. Even if it means life gets harder, we will dig deep for our “family”. Jesus Christ our Lord is head of the church. The church “family” is Christ’s body to the world. The fullness of Him who fills all in all. – Teresa
Ephesians 1:15-23 (ESV)
15 For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love[f] toward all the saints, 16 I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, 18 having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might 20 that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. 22 And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.
