Midweek – 7.7.17

This week we’re looking at Ephesians 4:7-10 and how Jesus, with all authority (after descending and ascending), gives gifts to his church so that they can walk in a manner worthy of their calling. Spend some time in the text below. Read it, meditate on it and allow it to minister to you.

1) I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, 2) with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, 3) eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4) There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— 5) one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6) one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. 7) But grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift. 8) Therefore it says,

“When he ascended on high he led a host of captives,
    and he gave gifts to men.”

9) (In saying, “He ascended,” what does it mean but that he had also descended into the lower regions, the earth? 10) He who descended is the one who also ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things.)

Stephen also covers the follow:

  1. Zac’s Mission and Worship Night on July 23 at 7pm
