The Body of Christ is a spiritual reality. It is constituted with God’s own life, and therefore God Himself is the substance of this marvelous organism. We must also be clear that the Body includes all genuine believers in Christ throughout history. We should also be clear that the Body has many different aspects, such as being the kingdom of God, the household of God, and the Bride of Christ.
