Ephesians 4:11-13

And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ...


Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

Do you know any Christians who have been saved for many years, decades even, and yet are still immature in their faith? Paul admonishes believers to become mature, to seek the "meat" of the Word, so that we can do the work for God which we are called to do.

One way to progress toward maturity is to sit under the teaching of those whom God has called into the various positions of authority in the church. Their job is to equip and edify the saints, a sobering task; our job is to carry out the calling, in maturity, which God has given us.

God Bless You!
