Scripture: Ephesians 4:11–13
Ephesians 4 assigns the five-fold ministry the task of developing God’s plan to achieve fullness! These verses say, “And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 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;…” How will God achieve fullness? If we let Him, King Jesus will raise up five-fold ministry to take us into fullness! Does our church recognize these five ministry gifts? How can we expect fullness from one single pastor? We cannot because God does not. Have we made that our aspiration and goal? A number of believers are happy to go to church and be blessed. Well, wait a minute! God has more for us than going to church and being blessed. How can we demonstrate fullness without all five inputs?
