CONCERNING THE CHURCH

THE BIBLE SAYS…

COMPILED  BY DANIEL L. WAKEFIELD

 

 

·         Acts 20:28                      Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

 

·         Romans 8:17                 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

 

·         Romans 9:25-26           As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. 26And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.

 

·         1 Corinthians 1:2          Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:

 

·         Ephesians 2:19             Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

 

·         Ephesians 3:15             Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, (See Hebrews 2:11)

 

·         Ephesians 5:25-27       Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.  (See 2 Corinth. 11:2)  29-30  For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: 30For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.  (See Colossians 2:19) 

 

·         Philippians 2:15            That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

 

·         Hebrews 12:23              To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,

 

·         1 Peter 2:9                      But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
