36 EPH 4:14Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming.
37 EPH 4:15Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.
38 EPH 4:16From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
