14 [a]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 [b]in deceitful scheming; 15 but [c]speaking the truth in love, [d]we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ, 16 from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together [e]by what every joint supplies, according to the [f]proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love.

Ephesians 4:14-16 New International Version (NIV)

14 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 people in their deceitful scheming. 15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. 16 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.
