    1. 1. Special Gifts
    2. 2. Therefore I, a prisoner for serving the Lord,beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling,for you have been called by God. 2 Always behumble and gentle. Be patient with eachother, making allowance for each other’sfaults because of your love. 3 Make everyeffort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit,binding yourselves together with peace. 4 Forthere is one body and one Spirit, just as youhave been called to one glorious hope for thefuture. Ephesians 4:1-4
    3. 3. 5 There is one Lord, one faith, onebaptism,6 and one God and Father, who isover all and in all and livingthrough all.7 However, he has given each oneof us a special gift through thegenerosity of Christ.Ephesians 4:5-7
    4. 4. That is why the Scriptures say,“When he ascended to the heights,    he led a crowd of captives    and gave gifts to his people.”Eph.4:8 and Psalm 68:18
    5. 5. Notice that it says “he ascended.” Thisclearly means that Christ alsodescended to our lowly world. Andthe same one who descended is theone who ascended higher than all theheavens, so that he might fill theentire universe with himself.Ephesians 4:9-10
    6. 6. Their responsibility is to equip God’speople to do his work and build up thechurch, the body of Christ. This willcontinue until we all come to suchunity in our faith and knowledge ofGod’s Son that we will be mature in theLord, measuring up to the full andcomplete standard of Christ.Ephesians 4:12-13
    7. 7. Then we will no longer be immature like children.We won’t be tossed and blown about by everywind of new teaching. We will not be influencedwhen people try to trick us with lies so clever theysound like the truth. Instead, we will speak thetruth in love, growing in every way more and morelike Christ, who is the head of his body, thechurch. He makes the whole body fit togetherperfectly. As each part does its own special work,it helps the other parts grow, so that the wholebody is healthy and growing and full of love.Ephesians 4:14-16
    8. 8. Verse of the Day“My old self has been crucified withChrist. It is no longer I who live, butChrist lives in me. So I live in this earthlybody by trusting in the Son of God, wholoved me and gave himself for me.”Galatians 2:20
    9. 9. A Living Sacrifice to God Romans 12 Key verse: 4-8Living as a Children of Light Ephesians 4:17-32 Key verse: 30-32
