You and Me and Us and Them

...comprehend with all the saints

what is the breadth and length and height and depth,

and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge.

Ephesians 3:18,19

I don’t know much.

“But Joe, you’ve had a great education, fabulous opportunities!”

I’m still learning.

“What was your major in college again?”

That was a while ago.

“In graduate school, weren’t you like an exchange student to two seminaries while going to a third and finally graduating from a fourth one?”

I know that I don’t even realize what all I don’t know.

“And don’t you have a doctoral degree from a fifth seminary?”

My dad, who had a MBA before they were popular, loved to say that all a degree proves is that you’re trainable. 

Our Bibles readily recognize that it takes all of us together: comprehend with all the saints is a subtle reminder that it takes all the saints, together, to even begin to grasp the profundities of holiness and grace and so much more.

In the words of an old Alice Cooper song, “I’ve still got a long way to go.”

How about you?
