The Unity/Maturity of the Church
The Unity/Maturity of the Church
Ephesians 4:13
Speaker's Picture
Sunday Morning Service,  September 13, 2009

In our previous study of this text, we saw that the ‘perfect male’ is a reference to the ultimate state of the church, which will occur when the Lord’s people are finally gathered with Him in glory. But what does this ultimate state look like? And how do we know if the church is making progress toward this goal? In a word, unity. The progress or maturity of the church is the unity of the Lord’s people.
