Ephesians 4:13 (NASB) until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.
No one wants to see those words... "Not connected to the Network." Whether it's on your phone, iPad, tablet, or computer, you know the minute you see those words there is a problem. So, you begin to unplug this cord and that waiting for all the lights on the router to appear. Yet sometimes the lights don't come back on, and the connection is again lost. Today's verse states that until all attain the unity of the faith, the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. Pretty heavy verse and a lot to take in, but the key to the verse is "until all attain." That means if we are not connected to the network of unity, we will have a problem. There will be a discord between us, and a place for Satan to enter causing nothing but problems. However, if we all keep working, keep striving to a mature man, to the measure of the stature of Christ, things will begin to work out; we will find ourselves connected again in unity. One voice, one heart with many hands doing His work. Make sure you stay connected one to another in Christ. Then we will see those worlds "Connection Re-established!"
