God expects us to mature
God Expects Us to Mature

Grow

He gave some to be . . . teachers to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then 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. Instead, 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 in love, as each part does its work.

Ephesians 4:11-16

Psalm 112:4-8

(Adapted for Women)

Even in darkness light dawns for the upright,    for the gracious and compassionate and righteous woman. Good will come to her who is generous and lends freely,    who conducts her affairs with justice. Surely she will never be shaken;    a righteous woman will be remembered forever. She will have no fear of bad news;    her heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD. Her heart is secure, she will have no fear

Yet he did not waver through unbelief . . . strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to . . . .

Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.

Titus 2:3-5

The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners . . . to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.

Is 61:1,3
