We must stop acting like children. We must not let deceitful people trick us by their false teachings, which are like winds that toss us around from place to place. Love should always make us tell the truth. Then we will grow in every way and be more like Christ, the head of the body. Christ holds it together and makes all of its parts work perfectly, as it grows and becomes strong because of love.
Ephesians 4:14-16 CEV
As we grow and become the body of Christ, we are meant to work together. Just as our physical body parts function together to keep us alive, our spiritual bodies are also designed for a mutual purpose. We are most vulnerable when we try to do it alone. Although God is a constant presence with us, He sends people into our lives to help us and to receive help from us. It is our love for one another that He uses to make all things work together for our good. Only love is truth. Anything or anyone that causes division is a lie. Don't be deceived.
