To Equip the Saints for the Work of Ministry

Sermon: Personalities (Marion Brown)

Ephesians 4:1, 7, 11-16 (NET)

4:1 I, therefore, the prisoner for the Lord, urge you to live worthily of the calling with which you have been called, […]

4:7 But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of the gift of Christ. […]

4:11 It was he who gave some as apostles, some as prophets, some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, 4:12 to equip the saints for the work of ministry, that is, to build up the body of Christ, 4:13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God – a mature person, attaining to the measure of Christ’s full stature. 4:14 So we are no longer to be children, tossed back and forth by waves and carried about by every wind of teaching by the trickery of people who craftily carry out their deceitful schemes. 4:15 But practicing the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into Christ, who is the head. 4:16 From him the whole body grows, fitted and held together through every supporting ligament. As each one does its part, the body grows in love.
