Ephesians 4:15-16


"Speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into Him who is the Head, that is, Christ.
From Him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work."


It is a wonderful thing when God's children realize we are nothing apart from Him! When we understand that we need to be totally dependant on Him, it takes away all competition, striving, and selfish ambition.
-Brother Yun

Thank you for this!!! It is so funny that I was reading something similar like that in a book called Fresh Faith!!! God's word never gets old.

Thanks Bethany, Timely bit of wisdom and goes along with the message I heard at youth camp last night about Christ being the center of our whole lives. May He truly be Who we live for moment by moment, by His power and full of His love.

Thanks so much for posting this verse! I'm working as a counselor at a Bible camp this summer and I was very encouraged to read about "speaking the truth in love."
Actually everything in this post was a real blessing to me! Thanks for your refreshing words and photographs whenever I'm on here :-)
