November 13 – Unity of the Faith

“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 fullness of Christ.”   Ephesians 4:13

God is looking for a church body that is in UNITY, a body that is alive and functioning as it was intended… growing up unto a perfect man… with

the EYES of a prophet the HANDS of a servant the EARS of a teacher

the FEET of an exhorter the ARMS of a giver

the HEAD of a ruler the HEART of mercy

Working together in Christ, all form a complete, healthy, functional body.

“From whom [Christ] the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.” (Ephesians 4:16)

So… “As every man hath received the GIFT, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.” (I Peter 4:10) (Emphasis supplied.)

PRAY: “Dear Lord, with Your help l am discovering the gifts and abilities given me.  Help me also to appreciate the gifts of others, so that together we will be effective and see Your body increase. In Jesus’ Name, amen.”
