God works faith in the believer (John ). God has given everyone a measure of faith (Rom. ). "But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves," (James ). You can mature and grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus. As I said, the word in Greek for maturity or perfection here is ''teleiotes.''.

until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in.
