The maturity of the Body of Christ

The determination I carry with me every day is to move the Body of Christ, especially the local church I am privileged to pastor, toward mature thinking.

This Sunday the message will be from Ephesians 4 on “Transformed Minds, Transformed Lives” (a series we’re currently going through). We are challenged to learn Christ. There is a process of lifelong learning where we can gain Kingdom thinking.

We are watching the American Church flail badly right now because shifts are happening and the Church is unprepared. We are tossed around because we have had shallow thinking and practices in the evangelical church for far too long. We can … and MUST… do better. It is possible.

We are called to grow into a mature body. This isn’t some nice suggestion. This is the path of the Kingdom of God.

The call, quite simply, is to grow up. Now is that time. Let’s not waste it.
