Ephesians 4:13 NASB "until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ."I couldn't help but think how without unity, the screws just kept stripping! Todays verse speaks to us about unity, unity of faith, unity of the knowledge of Christ and how that unity leads us to maturity and fullness of Christ! Trying to repair a ceiling track, where doors would run along it, we found that the screws were stripped. They could no longer hold the track up and so the doors couldn't work properly. The wood had split to where there was no strength, no unity of the wood to hold the weight of the track and the door. It needed to be repaired to work properly. Too often in families, churches, marriages, the unity is missing. With the unity missing, we are no longer useful. We need to do some repair work and allow Christ and the Holy Spirit to be the glue to bring us together again so that we may be useful and carry the weight of those who are in need! peace, tom
