Verses:

Eph. 4:15 “But holding to truth in love, we may grow up into Him in all things, who is the Head, Christ.”

 

Excerpts:

The meaning of growing into the Head, Christ, is acknowledging the authority of the headship of Christ. In all things big or small we have to allow Him to be the Lord. When we grow into the Head, Christ, we are allowing Christ to increase and grow in all the inward parts of the members. In this way when you grow in the Lord and I grow in the Lord, the sum total will be the growth of the Body of Christ.

 

If you allow Christ to grow in you, your gift will be manifested. Christ will not only be your life and living, but will be your gift as well. We must allow Christ to grow in us so that we can be perfected.

 

In order to perfect others, we must first have the experience ourselves and know God’s economy. Then we can help others to see God’s economy. On the one hand, the cross has terminated our old man. On the other hand, Christ is the Spirit of life who is now our life. The cross decreases us, and the resurrecting Spirit supplies Christ into us that we would be equipped. This is the perfecting. In the church meetings, all the prophesying should be based on this and should have this as the focus. The more we speak this kind of word, the more perfecting there will be. We have to speak until all the brothers and sisters are affected in their daily lives by this kind of word. In this way they will receive the genuine perfecting. (The Perfecting of the Saints and the Building Up of the Body of Christ, ch.3)
