Scripture Reading: Eph 4:14 That we henceforth are 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;
Reflections: The goal of every pastor is to help the people in their congregation reach the level of moral and spiritual maturity that Paul refers to as “perfection of the saints.” At this point, the person gives up acting like a child. They can no longer be tossed and turned by every doctrinal wind. They are also unable to be swayed by others who try to deceive them by telling lies that are skillfully crafted to resemble the truth. Overall, God is waiting for you to stop displaying any spiritual or moral immaturity and concentrate on developing moral and spiritual maturity with guidance from His word!
Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to focus on achieving spiritual and moral maturity.
Confession: I am focused on achieving spiritual and moral maturity.
