EPHESIANS 4:16 Out from whom all the Body, being joined together and being knit together through every joint of the rich supply and through the operation in the measure of each one part, causes the growth of the Body unto the building up itself in love.
Good news everybody! I’m BACK! Praise God!
But the better news is the word of God, so here it is. If you see the verse above its Ephesians 4:16. I’ve really been enjoying this verse of late. Different parts having been sticking out. First, we as believers are what the bible calls the Body of Christ. Christ is the Head, and ALL the believers are members of the body of Christ. Verse 15 speaks of Christ as the Head then verse 16 begins with “Out from whom”. The Body is out from Christ as the source. Anything that does not have its source in Christ is not the Body. Furthermore, one of the rich phrases in verse 16 reveals the Body is being joined together and knit together. HOW RICH IS THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is no hint of division, divisiveness, independence, isolation or separation. How awesome! The problem does not lie with the truth. Or our apparent disagreement of interpretation. Our problem is not practicing the truth as revealed in Ephesians 4:15. Holding to truth in love, we may grow up into Him in all things, who is the Head, Christ….In other words, we don’t take Christ as our Head, our source, in all things. So what we have is the default. The fallen human nature infested with the sinful nature of the devil. Where separations and divisions are abundant. There is no shortage there. But praise the Lord for THE BODY!! THE JOINING AND THE KNITTING OUT FROM THE HEAD!
