perfect.
 Not that every man would receive it; but there was no longer any limit. All distinction between them was blotted out, alike by sin and by grace, and there was but one thing to do; that is, to seek that every man, by the power of the Word and the Spirit, should reflect Christ and grow up unto the stature of His fullness, as revealed in the doctrine committed to the Apostle. (Colossians 1 by J.N. Darby)
 Full Christian maturity. “Perfect,” in the sense in which Paul uses the word here, refers to this. It means “full grown” and could be translated as such (1 Cor. 14:20; Phil. 3:15). (The Fulness That Resides in Christ by B. Anstey)
 Note the switch from the plural (“you” – vs. 27) to the singular (“every man” – vs. 28). This is because when it comes to growth and progress in divine things, it is an individual thing. (The Fulness That Resides in Christ by B. Anstey)
