“Until We All Arrive…at a Full-grown Man” (Eph. 4:13)

We need to advance in the experience of life in order to arrive at a full-grown man for the fulfillment of God’s purpose. In order to advance and arrive, we need to take Christ as our person. “Life” in itself could be abstract, but life is a Person. “It is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me” (Gal. 2:20). If we take Christ as our person, we will surely take Him as our life and we will advance in our experience of life. The secret to taking Christ as our person and to advancing in life is to give Him the first love (Rev. 2:4), the first place, in all things.
The audio of the church in LA meeting will be posted in a few days at http://www.churchinlosangeles.org/ministry/audio-messages.

“This Also We Pray For, Your Perfecting.” (2 Cor. 13:9).

We all have been given grace (Eph. 4:7). The Lord has also given gifted members (4:11) for our perfecting that we may be supplied to minister Christ for the building of the Body (4:12). One aspect of this perfecting is by our reading of the ministry. Those who are already reading regularly are encouraged to continue. Those who are not reading regularly are urged to begin the Life-study of Genesis, preferably with companions. A basic schedule for reading Genesis is at http://www.churchinlosangeles.org/prayer, but companions are welcome to set their own schedule.
