“Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ,” thus Paul writes in Ephesians 4:13.

Spiritual truths that were tangible in the past have now become abstract because the church today is so used to pragmatic spirituality. No wonder that ideas such as Paul writes are welcome with disgruntled looks, because we are unable to grasp them. What then?
