EPHESIANS 4:12-13 THE GIFTS FOR UNITY PART 3

13Aug

Ephesians 4:12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,13 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;

 V12 Equipping is to bring from sin to obedience…to mend or restore something.

As believers we are to restore those who have fallen or lost their way back to what they were intended to be, a useful member of the body of Christ.  A body only works right if all parts are healthy

Every person, therefore, is essential and valuable as part of the whole. By ourselves, we may sometimes feel insignif­icant, unneeded, and of little value, like so much spare change. But as individual parts that make up the whole, each of us is needed.

All people are unique individuals, but as Christians we are also indispensable parts of the body of Christ, and of greater value than we can ever know. –David MCcasland

THERE ARE NO UNIMPORTANT MEMBERS IN THE BODY OF CHRIST.

It says in verse 13 when we do this it results in Christlikeness.  We ought not to be like the Hebrews who had not matured and not followed these principles.

Heb 5:12 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food.
