   AMEN James, a seemingly small distinction which is in fact the The foundation and purpose of everything = it is all for and by our Lord Jesus Christ.

   I wonder where the measure of every part fits in?

Hi Paul. You must be referring to Ephesians 4:16.

Out from whom all the Body, being joined together and being knit together through every joint of the rich supply and through the operation in the measure of each one part, causes the growth of the Body unto the building up of itself in love.

I love this verse. Verse 14 says we should no longer be little children, and verse 15 says we grow up into the Head, Christ, by holding to truth.

Children are individualistic and focused on themselves. To grow spiritually means we are becoming less and less individualistic and more and more corporately minded. "Each one part" means that we have become something more than the sum of our individual capacity, but part of something much bigger, "all the Body."

Amen Fred, please excuse the structure of this reply as I'm doing a verbal response on my cell phone. Yeah the ability to come out of ourselves seems to be tied very closely with maturity in Christ. Knowing our need for one another, steaming others better, and such shows a real movement from self-centered into christ-centered I believe.
