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




[In Ephesians 4:15] truth refers to things that are true. The first item of these is God’s New Testament economy. The second item is the all-inclusive Christ. The third item is the church as the Body of Christ for expressing Him. We should hold to these true things in love that we may grow up into Christ.


When we hold to truth in the love of God, we will grow up into Him in all things, who is the Head, Christ. This shows that our growth in life with Christ should be the growth of the members in the Body under the Head. In everything big or small, such as the way we dress, the way we comb our hair, the way we shop, and the way we speak, we should take Christ as the Head, submitting under His headship. In this way we will grow into Him and will allow Him to occupy all our inward parts, that is, our mind, emotion, and will. In this way He will gradually increase and grow within us.


When we allow Him to be the Head in everything and when we grow up into Him in all things, we, being supplied with the riches of His life, will receive something from Him to transfuse into other members of the Body. Our growth in life is a growth into Him, but our function in the Body of Christ is out from the Head. First, we grow into the Head; then we have something out from the Head for the building up of His Body. ( CWWL, 1988, vol. 4, “The Perfecting of the Saints and the Building Up of the Body of Christ,” pp. 97-98)
