The point is

After Ephesians 4:1-16

This walk, this oneness,

this training, all these

resources assembled,

all of this has a point:

achieve unity of faith,

achieve unity of knowledge,

become mature (i.e., grow!)

in the maturity of the ideal

of the One, leaving behind

the immaturity of childhood,

the tossing by every wind

and wave by every new thing,

passing fancy, human deceit,

human cunning, schemes

of men (and women too)

masquerading as truth

and light. That’s the point:

maturing enough to leave

all that behind as useless

and unnecessary and

downright counterproductive.

Yes, the maturity to leave every extraneous thing behind. May God grow us all!
Blessings, Glynn!
