Text: Ephesians 4:11-15
“And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ…”
From the reading I see that Christ is very interested in us “knowing” Him, that we may grow into His fullness.
I see that without the knowledge of Him we remain babies and are therefore prone to deception by false teachers.
I learn that without knowledge we cannot become perfect and truly dominate our world.
I see how important the knowledge of Christ is! It is central to everything concerning my life and where God wants me to be!
The devil wins when we stay ignorant. When we refuse to read and pray.
I have learnt in essence that the highest form of prayer you can pray for yourself and for others is that you all grow into the knowledge and fullness of Christ! Then you will have the world at your feet and heaven in your sights.
This is my prayer for you and me. God bless you.
