Union with Christ is one of the greatest realities spoken of in the Bible. But God only tells us what it’s like with word images: it’s like a vine, it’s like a body, it’s like a marriage. And so, as Paul prays, we need the “eyes of our hearts to be enlightened,” so that we can catch a passing glimpse of this great reality. Union with Christ is the fabric of all salvation history, and when we’re caught up in this great story, we’re invited to find ourselves by looking outside of ourselves: by looking up at Christ, and by looking out at others, with whom we’re united in Christ.
