Christ’s Gifts to His Church, Part II

(Ephesians 4:7-10)

In this passage, the apostle Paul gives two primary proofs that Jesus has won the right to give spiritual gifts to His church:

  1. He Descended in Lowliness (4:8-10a)
  2. He Ascended in Loftiness (4:10b)


Whenever we dislocate our own spiritual gift from the anchor [of the ministry of the word] we begin to flounder in a sea of instability. We must see to it that our gifts are fed on the teaching of Holy Scripture, so that they grow strong and are channeled in the right direction, and so bring glory to Christ – Sinclair Ferguson


God distributes His gifts for His purposes and for the good of His people. His sovereign administration of these gifts must be acknowledged as right and proper by His people, even when they cannot see the good ~ Jay Adams
