Body Builders: Ephesians 4:11-16

About This Message


And Christ gave gifts to people—he made some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to go and tell the Good News, and some to have the work of caring for and teaching God’s people. Christ gave those gifts to prepare God’s holy people for the work of serving, to make the body of Christ stronger. Ephesians 4:11-12 (NCV)

There are different ways of serving, and yet the same Lord is served. There are different types of work to do, but the same God produces every gift in every person. 1 Corinthians 12:5-6 (GWT)

Their purpose is to prepare God’s people to serve and to build up the body of Christ. Ephesians 4:12 (GWT)

He makes the whole body fit together and unites it through the support of every joint. As each and every part does its job, he makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. Ephesians 4:16 (GWT)

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23 (NIV)
