Wesley's Notes for Ephesians 1:23


1:23 The fulness of him that filleth all in all - It is hard to say in what sense this can be spoken of the church; but the sense is easy and natural, if we refer it to Christ, who is the fulness of the Father.


People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 1:23


Eph 1:23 Which is his body. His spiritual body, living by union with the Head, pervaded by the life of Christ. The fulness of him. The church is a manifestation of the fullness of Christ, the body filled by his life, who filleth all in all. Filleth all things with his majesty and power. The object of the last four verses is to describe Christ's glories. These are: (1) His resurrection; (2) His Exaltation to God's Right Hand; (3) His Supreme Dominion; (4) His Headship to the Church, his Body, filled with His Fullness. These glories all follow his stooping unto the death of the cross. He abased himself that he might be exalted. See Heb 12:2.

Discussion for Ephesians 1

  • Clarita
    There's only one God an that is the lords Jesus Christ

    Jesus thinks very low of the Pharisees, very very low of them. He actually just thinks that they can't read and love death.
  • June Mitchell
    In such a time like this, we need God's Grace to sustain us and we need His Peace in our lives on a daily basis. The enemy is very busy. He is attacking me right now through my oldest daughter and granddaughter as the Word said this would happen on the Last and Evil days God's grace is sufficient thorough difficult times and all the time and He will give me Peace! Amen
  • MockingBird
    Grace is God's willingness to bestow a part of Himself in and upon us and God gives us His peace : Not as the world gives : His peace passes all understanding and there is no sorrow to it !!
  • John
    The LORDS GRACE is poured out by our SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST through LOVE. For GOD so LOVED THE WORLD, HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIMSHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. JOHN 3:16 The LORDS GRACE IS POURED OUT THROUGH AND BY THE LOVE OF HIS SON JESUS CHRIST. The GRACE we receive allows us to receive greater Faith by the LORDS written WORD, POURED OUT IN THE HOLY SPIRIT. EPHESIANS 3:20 Now unto HIM that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us. This is the LOVE OF GOD that pours out by GRACE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST IN TYE HOLY SPIRIT that gives us the PEACE THAT WE AS GODS CHILDREN so desire. We do not know HIS WAYS fully, but by HIS GRACE must trust in FAITH BY HIS ALL THAT PEACE IS OBTAINED BY HIS LOVE. When we realize EVERTHING IS FROM GOD WE CAN OBTAIN THE PEACE WE SEEK BY LOVE AND REVERENCE OF ALL THE BLESSINGS OUR LORD BESTOWS ON US. Read what KING DAVID SAID ABOUT OUR GOD. 1 CHRONICLES CHAPTER 29. WHEN WE HONOR THE GOD OF OUR FATHERS FULLY IN HEART, MIND AND SOUL THE PEACE OF GOD WILL TRULY BRING THE PEACE WE SEEK. GOD BLESS ALL.
