Paul said that Jesus gave certain leaders to the church for various reasons, including this, that they might

…speak the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ… (Ephesians 4.15). 

That is toward the end of a long sentence that begins at verse 11 and ends at verse 16. In verse 15, Paul explained that Jesus gave to the church apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers (v. 11) that they might speak the truth in love and by doing so, cause the body of Christ to grow up in Him, for He is the head.


  • Do you listen to truth spoken in love that you might grow?
  • Does the truth offend you?
