[9] Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: [10] That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; [11] And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

    As there are many Christians, they are part of ONE body.

    As a man married a woman, they become as one. Two separate beings, but one together.

    Ephesians 5:31 KJV
    For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

    Just as God is One, but in three separate persons and beings.
