Christ gave himself for the Church (His body) when the Church was not the Church. Although the Church was in Christ the expression of the Church was not yet universal. Christ came from heaven to earth and went to the cross, not because He Himself needed salvation but mankind needed salvation. Christ so loved the Church before we (the body of Christ) became the Church that He died for its birth and expression. Ought not the “Church” express that same kind of love for people?
