Maturity Is Our Destiny And Our Destiny Is Christ-likeness

Ephesians 4 says Christ gave the 5 fold ministry gifts (apostles, pastors, teachers etc) to equip the saints so they could grow up in ALL aspects INTO Christ.  Romans 8:29 adds we are all pre-destined to be conformed to the image of Christ.  This is where every one of us are headed.  We can either live according to our destiny in Christ and experience the fruit of our maturity, or we can live against our destiny and experience the frustrations of our immaturity.  For not only does our Father will our conforming to Christ but so does everyday life, our bodies, and our relationships. Listen, be set free, and join the journey!
