appropriateness of His
acts.

The highest good!

of all good things that you did
not fill, and cisterns that you
did not dig, and vineyards

ourselves the blood, the very
1 Corinthians 10:15-
18
the same with the loaf of bread
we break and eat? Don't we
take into ourselves the body,
the very life, of Christ? Because
there is one loaf, our many-
ness becomes one-ness —
1 Corinthians 10:15-
18
Christ doesn't become
fragmented in us. Rather, we
become unified in Him. We
don't reduce Christ to what we
are; He raises us to what He is.
