Ephesians 4:15 (AMP) Rather, let our lives lovingly express truth. Enfolded in love, let us grow up in every way and in all things into Him Who is the Head, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).
Derek Prince was in the British forces when he first came in contact with Christians whose lives expressed truth. He knew that they had something he did not have, something he could not explain. And this was what pushed him to seek the Lord in desperation.
That great teacher was converted not because someone preached to him, but because he could see truth in the lives of certain people and wanted to know their God.
Sometime last ago, we talked about how Grace and truth came through Jesus Christ (see John 1:17). Grace empowers us to walk in truth.
Today’s Bible text is part of a thought, in it we see that the reason the Lord gave gifts was so that the church would be edified and grow into the fullness of the stature of Christ. Christians who have reached this will walk this earth full of grace the way Jesus was. They are those who bring light to their world. Their lives will also be full of truth. They will be completely blameless as Jesus was.
It is through the ministry of Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and teachers that Christians can grow into spiritual maturity. As this happens, they will be able to live lives that lovingly express truth; the reality of God.
Go into today knowing that sound teaching and ministry is the key to spiritual growth.
Ask the Lord to lead you to materials and resources that will boost your spiritual growth this season.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
