Excerpt One
Christ Himself Is Our Oneness

About

In the three epistles of First Corinthians, Second Corinthians, and Galatians, the apostle Paul deals with very negative situations regarding, respectively, the church’s relationships with itself, with the Lord’s servants, and with Christ. Then, in the next three epistles, Ephesians, Philippians, and Colossians, he covers these same things in a very positive way.

In particular, in the book of Colossians we see that Christ and only Christ is everything. When you have Christ, you automatically have the oneness of the Body of Christ, because He Himself is the unique oneness. Therefore, rather than stressing the matter of oneness, Colossians stresses Christ Himself.


 


Excerpt Two
Christ Is the Source and Reality of Oneness

About

Christ is the unique source, element, substance, nature, sphere, and living out of the reality of oneness. If you take away Christ you have taken away the source of oneness and brought in a source of division.


 


Excerpt Three
Christ Is the Head of the Body

About

Christ is the Head of the Body, the church. This means He is also the Body itself, because without a head a body dies.


 


Excerpt Four
The Oneness Is Realized Through Completing the Word of God

About

When the word of God is fulfilled, then automatically oneness is present. In Colossians 1:25 the Greek word translated “complete” also means “to fulfill,” indicating that this word must be subjective to us.


 


Excerpt Five
Presenting Every Man Full-Grown in Christ

About

According to Colossians 1:24-29 there are several matters involved in raising up a local church. We must fill up what is lacking of the sufferings of Christ (v. 24), fulfill the word of God (v. 25), and admonish and encourage each one to present them full-grown to God (v. 28). Each of these items involves suffering on the part of those who serve Christ.


 


Excerpt Six
Struggling for the Building Up of the Church

About

According to Colossians 2:1-3 Paul struggled according to Christ, the mystery of God. He not only suffered for the saints’ growth, but struggled for their building up in the church life.
