Ephesians – Gifts

Read Ephesians 4:5-13

Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ. This will continue until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God’s Son that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ. Ephesians 4:1-12 (NLT)

We haven’t yet reached the full and complete standard of Christ, but God has given gifts to his people, his Church to bring us ever closer in this life, as we await its fulfillment in the next. Listen as Jason describes the proper functioning of the gifts of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers in creating and maintaining a transformational Christian community.

Ephesians – Unity in the Body

Read Ephesians 4:1-6

Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace.
Ephesians 4:3 (NLT)

The vision of God is unity in the body of Christ. Within the church, we are called to a higher standard of relating to one another. We are called to be both honest and humble, truthful and gentle with one another as we reconcile our differences so that trust and relationship can be maintained. Listen as Jason gives a more detailed explanation of what this looks like in real life today.
