The Lord has been speaking to us about our growth and maturity as a prophetic community, and this Word shows us the first step: speaking the truth in love. When each member of the Body speaks the truth in love to each other, we grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ (Ephesians 4:15). It is easy to rely on a hierarchical structure because it does not require the congregants to mature in the Lord.
Maturity requires something of each one of us. If we are to speak the truth, we must begin by waiting on the Lord, praying in the Spirit, and learning His voice. Learn the truth and appropriate God’s love to speak it. Our growth and maturity as a prophetic community requires that we take this step. By speaking the truth in love, we will create a greater flow of the living Word to each other and to the nations.
