GIFTS AND CALLING 2



 
🔊Audio Version☞  http://bit.ly/2cWJbUM

Ephesians 4:12 [AMP]
His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people),  the work of ministering toward building up Christ's body (the church). 

We see in today's Bible text that the reason Jesus gave gifts to the body (the Church) was because he wanted the saints to be fully equipped and made perfect. Perfection is the degree to which we are conformed to the image and stature of Christ.

People with the callings to be Apostles, prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and teachers, are given to the body (the Church) for the edification of the body. They are the established channels through which the body receives from the Lord directly.

The purpose of your calling is not for personal edification [and enrichment]; it is for the edification of the body. If you have a gift and your goal is not to edify the body with it, you will end up dividing the body with it.

There are many gifts (people) that have not started walking in their calling because they have not started to edify the body. They are only directly edifying themselves and dividing the body as a result.

If you have gifts corresponding to the calling in the kingdom. The purpose of your gift is for the edification of the body.

Go into today knowing that God's gifts in your life are to help you fulfill His calling to build up the church.

Pray that the Lord will help you be a profitable servant. That you will not cooperate with Satan to hide your gift.
-Pas Abraham SD
