Day 36: A place to grow

That from now on we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro, and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, and cunning craftiness by which they lie in wait to deceive… (Eph. 4:14)

What is church really “all about?” Any church will be deficient and even sickly without a vibrant community life in which people are challenged to change through the grace of Christ. Believers must have faith that God is able to take them from spiritual and emotional childhood into mature saints who reflect His life and character “in all things.” It will come as we hold on to “Him who is the Head.” With his help, let’s build a community in which each one helps his neighbor to do the works and the words of Jesus.

Jesus, we want to be about the Father’s business! Enable us to instruct Your people in the ways of God. Make us a community of love that will support and strengthen one another. Equip us and let us grow up into the height of the fullness of You; for we wish to fully display Who You are to the world.
