Daily Service – That you might know HIM
Resurrected from the first volume of Daily Service
In the verses preceding my memorized text below Paul is talking about spiritual gifts and why they were given. I got two things from this verse, one of which was confirmed in our Sunday morning lesson.
There are two things I want you to get out of this:
Ephesians 4:14-16 NKJV that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head–Christ– from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
Ver. 14. fulness of holy character; that we may be no longer infants, “childish” in respect of ignorance and the weakness of ignorance, borne on billows and drifted about by every wind of the teaching which would beguile us, in, in the sphere and influence of, the dice-play, the unscrupulous religious cozenage, of men, (these mere men, who have no Christ, no God, behind them;) in their cunning, with a view to, to reach the ends of, the scheming of their (τῆς) deceit. For alas, there are those around you who not only do lead you astray, but mean to do it, laying deliberate traps, and arranging well-drawn methods, on purpose to guide you away from the Christ whom they do not love. The purpose of the great Giver’s plan is the opposite to this; it is, as we have seen, that you should not be exposed helpless
