Speaking the Truth in Love
God uses people to get his message out. The best way to go about doing that (and the way God intended) is through interaction.
14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
God wants us to grow up and do so in the things of God. Christ is the HEAD and when the body works together, there are results! Jesus is the cornerstone from which we are all knit together.
The body of Christ is not an organization, but an organism.
When you have a gift from God, or when you’re acting in that gift, people will notice. It’s our job to give the credit back to Him who gave us the gift.
The book of Ephesians is about relationships!
The Law of Morality is written on your heart. It doesn’t tell us that God is the establisher of that morality, but the more we tune into the voice of God (aka obedience to God, obedience to the good), then we learn who God is; and we recognize His voice.
To do the work of the Lord is to believe in the son. We do that by expressing ourselves as CHANGED BEINGS.
