He is the Saviour of the body. - Ephesians 5:23

The church is the body of Christ. Jesus and His people are one. They are His elect whom He hath chosen; His seed which He had begotten; His portion which He had received; His delight and glory, in which He constantly rejoices.

He saves them by substitution; He took their place, their obligations, and their sins. He saves them by communication; giving them grace and His Holy Spirit, with every spiritual blessing. He saves them by instruction; for they are all taught of God.

He saves them by separation; bringing them out of, and delivering them from this present evil world. He saves them by visitations; He grants them life and favour, and His visitations preserve their spirits. He saves them by translation; first out of the kingdom of Satan, into His kingdom of grace; and then out of the present world, into His kingdom of glory.

He saves them to display His perfections; confound His foes; exalt His name; satisfy His love; and from sympathy with them. All who are saved form part of His body. Salvation is entirely of God. What happiness to be saved thus!

Joyful truth, He bore transgression
In His body on the cross;
Through His blood there's full remission;
All for Him we count but loss:
Jesus for the sinner bleeds,
Nothing more the sinner needs.
