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.

    Thank God we have the Holy Spirit who is always with us in our walk with the Lord. If we are going to depend on our own efforts to fulfill the demands of Scripture and please God we will never get there Jesus says "...apart from me you can do nothing" Jh 15:5 We pray to God in Jesus name and depend on the Holy Spirit to help us in all things it makes life easier.
  • A disciple
    Kent, YES but don't look for them to be splashed all over the internet, or on TV: as the true servants of Jesus will also walk in the steps of the Master, and not be seeking for people to recognize them. Like the Lord said; "the tree is known by its fruit;" to whomsoever God gives a gift, it will be from what is really put in him from God; and nothing manufactured by his own doings or methodology.
  • Kent
    in verse im so confused for what paul said , are there apostles and prophets today ?
  • BSP
    Verse 31 shows negative traits and behavior that we need to put away. We must learn to control our temper and our speech when dealing with others.
  • Bruce
    Juarez: Sometimes it is hard to forgive someone, even with Christ in my heart. I could boil for a while, grit my teeth,where's that baseball bat! Thanks be to God he can bring calm in the storm! All the sinful things we done that brought unbelievable pain to our Savior! He said I forgive you. The anger can turn to peace when you forgive those who hurt you. Face to face or in prayer or both.

  • Michelleann Juarez
    The verse about not laying down with anger in my heart is so very hard for me.Especially when others hurt me.Or someone I love or just any injustices against those whom can not defend themselves.How do you overcome this any advice?
