Ephesians 4:11
Spiritual Gifts
Study
And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets,
some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 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; 14 that we should no longer be children,
tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of
doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness
of deceitful plotting, 15 but, speaking the truth in love,
may grow up in all things into Him who is the head––
Christ–– 16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit
together by what every joint supplies, according to the
effective working by which every part does its share,
causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
Ephesians 4:11-16 NKJV
