Be a complete man – Ephesians 4:13-15, Ephesians 4:22-24

Ephesians 4:13-15

13 Till we all come in the unity (oneness) of the faith (firm, pursuant, conviction), and (even) of the knowledge (perfect knowledge) of the Son (the heir) of God, unto (motion to) a perfect (complete) man, unto (motion to) the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

14 That we henceforth be (may be) no more (no longer) children (not old enough to speak), tossed to and fro (surging about as waves), and carried about (born hither and thither) with every wind (air in motion) of doctrine (the teaching), by (remianing within) the sleight (entrapping by deceit) of men, and cunning craftiness (with subtlety), whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

15 But speaking the truth (truthing it) in love, may grow up into him in all things, which (who) is the head, even Christ:

Ephesians 4:22-24

22 That ye put off (put away) concerning (with the ultimate purpose) the former (before) conversation (manner of life) the old man (Adam nature), which is corrupt (being corrupted) according to the deceitful lusts (sinful desires);

23 And be renewed (implies that the whole course of life now flows in a different direction) in the spirit of your mind (reflective conscious);

24 And that ye put on (like a tee shirt) the new man (new spiritual nature), (that) which after (along the same motion) God is (was) created in (remaining within) righteousness and true (of the truth) holiness (godliness).
