Grow Together

Passage: Ephesians 4:13-16

We are better when we grow together (Ephesians 4:13-16). We miss out on true growth – on the abundant life God has for us – when we attempt to navigate our faith journey alone. Maturing as a follower of Jesus is intricately tied to unity in our relationships with other followers of Jesus, to walking in healthy partnership with other believers. Just as Adam needed a helper in the garden of Eden, Jesus as the perfect son of God chose to surround Himself with twelve imperfect men in day-to- day community and fellowship. As Christians, we are each part of a body and are designed to live in collective healthiness as each part fulfills their intended roles and responsibilities. Unhealthiness arises when believers either walk in disunity or do not know their specific part or role. When we function as a healthy body, with each part fulfilling their distinct calling and destiny, the gospel of Jesus and His kingdom advances and lives are transformed.
