15 Rather,speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, 16 from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.
We have been examining how to become more intimate with God. I want us to right in the middle of these teachings to reflect back on why we want to be intimate with God. We want to be intimate with God so we will thus fulfill the law of Christ. You see He will empower us to bear one another's burdens, something you and I cannot truly do without the love of Jesus Christ. Let us examine these scriptures in Ephesians chapter 4 and understand how becoming Christlike, how fulfilling the law of Christ is a process. It is a growth process that must be driven by the love of Jesus Christ. Just look at verse 15, we are to speak the truth in love. Love that can only be found in our Savior. We are to grow up in every way into Him, who is head, into Christ. You see Jesus expects us to grow each and everyday. We all start somewhere and from that start we are to grow each and everyday towards Him. He must be the head. Do you see Jesus must be what drives our mind. He must be what directs our thoughts. He must be upon which you meditate. He makes the parts all work together by taking over your mind and thoughts. This only happens when you surrender to Him and allow Him to take over. This only happens when you are so intimate with Him that He controls your thoughts, your movements, your sacrifices, your stances, your commitments, your everything. Get alone with God today and allow Him to take over.
2 John 1:6
6 This is love, that we walk according to His commandments. This is the commandment, that as you have heard from the beginning, you should walk in it.
