Wesley's Notes for Ephesians 4:13


4:13 Till we all - And every one of us. 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.

    V. 26 - I had read this verse many times and - I knew it was possible to do, to be angry (really angry, not just miffed) and sin not - because the Bible says so. BUT - I just couldn't imagine how. I found out how a couple of days ago. My husband is anti God. He was trying to be a 'mini' dictator to our FORTY-SIX yr. old son!! I told him it was our son's decision, not his. but, I didn't 'lose' it

    Verse 32: says be ye kind one to another, forgiving one another as our Father forgives us. This verse really touches me because we need to forgive, love, and be kindhearted toward one another. Hallelujah!! Praise God!! In the name of Jesus..
