Grow in Christ, Teach in Love and Build the Body of Christ Part I

Bible Verse Ephesians 4:14-16

That we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head-Christ from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.

Commentary:

In these passages Paul is speaking of our Christian maturity as we grow in Christ through the study of God's word and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. And the word he uses here for children actually means babies, or more accurately toddlers in our modern vernacular. He is comparing immature Christians to toddlers who cannot walk and are unable to speak. And because of their vulnerability cannot be left alone by themselves. He does this in order to compare the danger helpless children face with the dangers of Christian immaturity and not being grounded in the word of God.

Not knowing or understanding God's word is dangerous because it means a person is susceptible to every false doctrine. Therefore immature Christians are easy prey for false teachers and their deceitful schemes. That's why Christians immature in their faith must strive to be grounded in God's word. Dear believer these passages and others make it clear to us that understanding the Bible is not optional for the Christian. Rather it's a must have because it’s foundational to our faith. How can we claim to know the savior our dear Lord Jesus, unless we truly love Him enough to know His word?

Conduct Worthy of the Gospel
