Kurosaki: Christ the Head

Friday, March 15, 2024
    We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.
    —1 John 1:3 (NIV)
    [Continued from yesterday]
    If we will practice this living union with Christ, loving each other without any concern about sects and denominations, doctrines or forms, then we shall have the Body of Christ with Him as Head. This is the Ekklesia in its truest and purest sense. Therefore, the Ekklesia is not an institution, not a system, not theology, not the words of the Bible, and not any ritual or ceremony. The Ekklesia exists where there is this life union with God through Christ.
    ... Kokichi Kurosaki (1886-1970), One Body in Christ, Kobe, Japan: Eternal Life Press, 1954, ch. 4 (see the book)
    See also 1 John 1:3; Matt. 16:18; 1 Cor. 12:28; Eph. 1:22-23; 5:29-30; Col. 1:18-20; 1 Tim. 3:14-15; Heb. 12:22-24
Quiet time reflection:
    Have I valued something else above my union with Christ in the church?
