Titus 2:15 Encourage and rebuke with all authority. 1 Cor 11:1 Follow my example as I follow the example of Christ. Hebrews 13:7 Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith. Hebrews 13:17 Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. 1 Corinthians 16:15-16 Submit yourselves to such as these… Colossians 1:28-29 I teach and admonish everyone…to present everyone mature in Christ.

Ephesians 4:15-19 Speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up on love, as each part does its work.
Like a mother… Like a father… 1 Thess 2:7-11. Let us present everyone complete/mature in Christ. We Proclaim Him
