Ephesians 4:14-16

[Christ] makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love. Ephesians 4:16 (NLT)

God’s purpose in giving his gifts to the Church is that we would all reach maturity in our faith. This will not happen fully until we reach heaven, but in the present we should allow the Spirit to continually grow us in knowledge, obedience and love.
