Scripture: Ephesians 4:2-13
Ephesians 4 outlines the goal and the goal is, we want the fullness of Christ, that we be filled with all the fullness of Christ. That is the goal and God has assigned five-fold ministry to get us there. But not everyone called qualifies! We hope every church who commits to bring five-fold ministry to the people of God will prepare their believers for the last days. All five ministry gifts, cycling in and out of the pulpit, should get people ready to walk in the fullness of Christ. Only ministries who say yes to the Cross qualify! Where this standard is upheld, these are the kind of churches we want to attend. That is where we can grow to the place of being all that God called us to be. Prophets and true apostles prepare us for executing the written judgment. The Lord gives us what to pray, often from the Psalms, that brings judgment! The Holy Spirit initiates it in prayer and then demonstrates it! Jesus is Savior and Judge! Representing both sides of Christ is required!
