Apostle Grace Lubega
Psalms 119:96 (KJV), I have seen an end of all perfection: but thy commandment is exceeding broad.
The Word of God has perfections in it. For example, when Paul tells the Church at Corinth that they were “enriched in all utterance and in all knowledge and came behind in no gift” (1 Corinthians 1:5-7), that is a kind of perfection in the Word.
It is a beautiful thing to produce fruit in the perfections of the Word of God. But more than that, God wants you to produce fruit in the broadness of His Word.
What does this mean? The Corinthian Church had certain limitations even if they operated in the perfection of “all utterance, all knowledge and coming behind in no gift.”
They struggled with the unity of the faith and had divisions (1 Corinthians 3:3).
They had not matured in the grace of giving for the cause of the gospel. Paul in 2 Corinthians 11:8 says, “I robbed other churches, taking wages of them to do you service.”
When you are in the broadness of the Word, you have all round success in the demonstration of power and maturity: you walk in divine health, give to the gospel, prosper financially, demonstrate His power and manifest all that the Word declares as your portion in Christ.

When you are in the broadness of the Word, you have all round success in the demonstration of power and maturity.
PRAYER: Father, I thank you for your word. You have taken me beyond anything that may be defined as perfection in this world to the very end where I behold the broadness of the Word. It is from there that I start to bear fruit. I give divine and eternal answers to men. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
