Jesus is Lord of the Church

Here is summary from a section on the church (pp. 192-194), from "Big Truths for Young Hearts" by Bruce Ware.  The Bible gives 3 illustrations of what the church is in relation to Christ:
  1. We are sheep, He is the Shepherd. We should hear and follow Him (John 10:3-4).
  2. We are the bride, He is the Bridegroom. We should be pure and submit to Him (2 Corinthians 11:2-3; Ephesians 5:24).
  3. We are the body, He is the Head. We should show love and receive love from other believers (1 Corinthians 12:12-26).
