Dear Daughter of Almighty God
Ephesians 4:11-13 (ESV)
11 And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, 12 to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, 13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ,
God has given us people to help equip us and build us up so we can mature in God. The apostles, prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers are all part of Gods plan in our lives. They can only be effective in our lives if we listen to them and apply what they say to our lives. We do need to know that these people are of God as there are many false people out there.
When we make Jesus the Lord of our lives we are like babies and need to learn by listening to and watching others who are more mature than we are. We must remember that none of us are perfect and so we make mistakes but don’t right someone of because they got it wrong. God forgives so should we.
As a child grows they start learning for themselves and so should we and we can help our growth by reading the Word of God and talking to God. We need to build our relationship with God and with each other. As relationships are built then people unite and we will unite in the faith and of the knowledge of the son of God.
God’s Word holds the answers.
