Theme: Grow Up

Topic: Reaching the Goal

Scripture Reading:
Ephesians 4:10-16

Main Text:
Ephesians 4:13-14
13  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 fulness of Christ:
14 That  we henceforth  be  no  more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by  the  sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

No matter the language a church uses to outline its  mission and vision, its  ultimate goal should be  to attain to the measure  of the stature of the fullness of Christ (Ephesians 4:13). Anything other than this falls short of the  ultimate goal. The  general observation is that most churches don’t have Jesus as the centre of their mission. A church can only be solid if everybody in it strives towards one ultimate  goal.

The effort of the Church to attain Jesus Christ’s stature should be  sustained. There should be no break in our commitment to be like  Christ. We must not be distracted from this goal.  Anything, which draws us away from this target,  should be resisted. We cannot grow weary in our effort to be like Jesus Christ. Many churches have the wrong goal in view. They have  a  distorted view of the  future state and this has disoriented them in belief and in ministry. If we  get our goal right, our actions will be right and our churches will be  solid.

To attain this ultimate goal and to build solid churches the believers in the Body of Christ must grow together. God has designed the Body  of  Christ to grow together. Anything other than this leads to confusion and stunted growth. There  is joy in growing together as a body.

Prayer:
Pray for yourself that the Holy Ghost will continually guide you as you seek to be like Jesus Christ.
