As God administers gifts to all men for the Upbuilding of His Kingdom let us pray that our gifts are effectively building even when man can’t see what is happening behind the scenes. Our God is awesome and for those who have the gift to equip, let us never grow weary in well doing. The Lord our God knows exactly what He is doing through us. Ours is to be pliable and obedient.
Love and Peace in Christ Jesus,
Apostle Brenda D. Cooper
Notice that it says “he ascended.” This clearly means that Christ also descended to our lowly world. And the same one who descended is the one who ascended higher than all the heavens, so that he might fill the entire universe with himself. Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ.
Ephesians 4:9-12 NLT
