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.

    Paul the apostle was an example of no matter how much sin, our GOD is a forgiving GOD. By the grace of our GOD, we are saved, forgiven, and will live eternally with our FATHER, HIS SON JESUS CHRIST, and THE PRECIOUS HOLY SPIRIT.

    Frank; We are in a time of increasing darkness and trouble, because so many that have heard and known the word of God have despised and rejected it; and love instead their cares and pleasures in this life, than to be of the truth. This is the narrow way that Jesus spoke of, and the very reason most choose to stay on the broad way because they are ashamed or afraid or simply love their sins more.
