Wesley's Notes for Ephesians 4:13

Come to the unity of the faith, and knowledge of the Son of God - To both an exact agreement in the Christian doctrine, and an experimental knowledge of Christ as the Son of God. To a perfect man - To a state of spiritual manhood both in understanding and strength. To the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ - To that maturity of age and spiritual stature wherein we shall be filled with Christ, so that he will be all in all.


People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 4:13


Eph 4:13 Till we all come. These offices are given in order that all may come to a goal that is named just below. They must be continued in some form until that goal is reached. In the unity of the faith. This is one of the great objects to be attained through these offices. Paul, as an apostle and a prophet, exhorts to the same end in Eph 4:2. As an apostle and prophets, he so exhorts still. Every evangelist and pastor who is under God's spirit should labor to the same end. Not only "unity of the faith", but unity of the knowledge of the Son of God is aimed at. Full unity of the faith will be found when all alike know Christ. Unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ. "Unto a fullgrown man" (Revised Version). The second end to be attained is a noble manhood, fully developed, after the modes of life furnished in Christ Jesus. This must be the aim of all teaching, and of all living. If we cannot attain fully to it in the flesh, we certainly can aim at it and grow more and more into Christ's likeness.

    Ephesians 4 vs 25,29,31 our words express the true conditions of our hearts.

    Eph. 4:8 - This is a ref. to Jesus descending into hell to rescue the O.T. saints who died in faith, Jesus having the KEYS of death and hell, Rev. 1:18. The 'gifts' to men came in Acts 2:38; the MAIN gift was the Holy Ghost from which came all the gifts of - healing, casting out devils, teachers, pastors, etc. Line upon line,.....precept upon precept, Isa. 28:10.

    Ephesians 4:29 clearly tells us that the same mouth that we say our prayer, eat and drink we should not be using vulgarities and bad mouth others. Its basic common sense. This verse has wake me up. God bless

    May our God help us to use words that build up, not destroy, other people.
  • Irene123
    I like Sharon's comment on v. 5 - AMEN! I love the whole chapter. Verse 26 - since I r'cvd the Holy Ghost - I don't get angry. It just takes too much energy. It's so much easier to go into prayer mode. Anger just keeps feeding on itself (and feeding on your body). I'm not saying I won't get angry one day, I am human - still.
