Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children:and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma. Ephesians 5:1-2
Christ is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body. Ephesians 5:23b
Husbands, love your wives just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her with the washing with the word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless. Ephesian 5:25-27
Jesus Christ Our Savior
We once were immoral, greedy, impure and a covetous people. We once were unholy and blameless. Christ gave Himself up as an offering and sacrifice to God to purify us, to cleanse us for Himself. We are through the shedding of His precious blood, cleansed and washed. We are His church, His Bride and we will stand before Christ in all our glory with no spot or wrinkle and we will be holy.
