Christ Gave Gifts to The Church

by on June 6, 2013

 

To each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift.

“When He ascended on high,

  • He led captivity captive,
  • And gave gifts to men.”

And He Himself gave:

  • Some to be apostles,
  • Some prophets,
  • Some evangelists, and
  • Some pastors and
  • Some teachers,

For:

  • The equipping of the saints
  • The work of ministry,
  • The edifying of the body of Christ,

Till:

  • We all come to the unity of the faith and
  • Of the knowledge of the Son of God,
  • To a perfect man,
  • To the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;
  • That we should no longer be children,
  • Tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine,
  • By the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting,

 

But,

  • Speaking the truth in love,
  • May grow up in all things into Him who is the head–Christ–
  • From whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies,
  • According to the effective working by which every part does its share,
  • Causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.

 

From Ephesians 4:7-16
