Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.
Our goal as believers is to mature into the full presence of Jesus Christ in the world by being his unified Body of believers. This challenging goal can only be accomplished if we speak the truth — God's Spirit-inspired message — and do so with an attitude of love.
How can we expect to convey the message of God's love which sent Jesus if we don't live that love ourselves?
Almighty God, please help me capture all my impure motives and ungodly attitudes and clothe them in your love. Please fill me and make the Spirit's fruit more real in my attitudes and actions. In the name of the Lord Jesus I pray. Amen.
