We Are a Growing Family Day 4
Jesus tells you… God wants us to grow up, to know the whole truth and tell it in love—like Christ in everything. We take our lead from Christ, who is the source of everything we do. He keeps us in step with each other. His very breath and blood flow through us, nourishing us so that we will grow up healthy in God, robust in love. Eph 4:16 (MSG)
My Reaction -
Verse 15 ends with Christlikeness. I wonder if that perfection keeps some people from using their abilities. Fear of mistakes? Verse 15: speaking truth in love, each of us grows up into Christ. Verse 16: from Christ to the whole church is joined together and grows up.
Individuals to Christ to Church. Christ is the center.
Grow up! Become robust! Yet, how can we hold each other up when mistakes happen? How can we encourage willingness to be sent… even when uncomfortable?
