“Christ came not to save men only, but mankind. It is ‘in the church’ that God’s consummate
glory will be seen. No man in his fragmentary selfhood, no number of men in their separate capacity can
conceivably attain ‘unto the fullness of God.’ It will need all humanity for that, to reflect the full-orbed
splendor of divine revelation. Isolated and. divided from each other, we render to God a dimmed and
partial glory. ‘With one accord, with one mouth we are called to glorify the God and Father of our Lord
Jesus Christ.’ Wherefore the apostle bids us ‘receive one another, as Christ also received us, to the glory
of God.’ Romans 15: 6, 7.

“The church, being the creation of God’s love in Christ and the receptacle of his
communicative fullness is the vessel formed for his praise. Her worship is a daily tribute to the divine.
majesty and bounty. The life of her people in the world, her witness for Christ and warfare against sin,
her ceaseless ministries to human sorrow and need, proclaim the divine goodness, righteousness, and
truth. From the heavenly places there she dwells with Christ, she reflects the light of God’s glory and
makes it shine into the depths of evil at her feet.”
