13 until we all reach the unity of faith and knowledge of God’s Son. God’s goal is for us to become mature adults—to be fully grown, measured by the standard of the fullness of Christ. Ephesians 4:13
In today’s verse from Paul’s letter, Paul mentions some important points to think about concerning believing in and serving God. He mentions the idea of being unified , “reaching the unity of faith…” ; another thing is growing in knowledge, learning about God and His desires for us. Thirdly, Paul speaks of “becoming mature adults” – this refers to maturing in our spiritual growth. He feels this will add to the overall health of the body, the church. It is very important that a church be healthy, no matter the size of that body.
Let us Pray together – Creator, Redeemer, Sustaining God , we desire to be the very best we can all be for You, and You alone. Help us Lord, nurture and feed Your church, we ask, that we all can become truly one body for Christ. Guide us to a road of growth and learning, Father, so that we can have a deeper knowledge of You in our lives, and then be able to share this with this hurting world of ours. We pray all this is Your Son’s great name……… Amen
Yours in Christ , Rollie
