• “GOD GAVE GIFTS TO MEN!”

    Ephesians 4:1-16 (ESV)

    Unity in the Body of Christ

    “[1] I therefore, a prisoner for the LORD, urge you to walk in a manner WORTHY OF THE CALLING to which YOU HAVE BEEN CALLED, [2] with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, [3] eager to maintain the unity of the SPIRIT in the bond of peace. [4] There is one body and one SPIRIT—just as you were called to the one HOPE that belongs to YOUR CALL—[5] one LORD, one FAITH, one BAPTISM, [6] one GOD and FATHER of all, WHO is over all and through all and in all. [7] But grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of CHRIST’s gift. [8] Therefore it says,

    “When HE ascended on high HE led a host of captives,
    and “HE GAVE GIFTS TO MEN”.”

    [9] (In saying, “HE ascended,” what does it mean but that HE had also descended into the lower regions, the earth? [10] HE who descended is the ONE WHO also ascended far above all the heavens, that HE might fill all things.) [11] And HE gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, [12] to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of CHRIST, [13] until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the SON of GOD, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of CHRIST, [14] so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. [15] Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into CHRIST, [16] from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.”



    We are ALL descendants of our CREATOR (Colossians 1:16), although some of us reject being apart of HIS CHOSEN race. We who have been CHOSEN by our CREATOR (Ephesians 1:4) are NOT perfect or complete. Why else did “HE gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of CHRIST”?

    Know that you have been given “tools” to enhance the lives of others and to BUILD UP the body of CHRIST…not to enhance yourself! “HE GAVE GIFTS TO MEN” that will GLORIFY HIM! Some are assigned jobs that require characteristics that they haven’t developed yet, but “HE GAVE GIFTS TO MEN” that HE has to bring out in HIS DIVINE PLAN!!!

  • “WHOM IS THE SPIRIT OF GOD?”

    Genesis 41:14; 37-43

    “[14] Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and THEY QUICKLY BROUGHT HIM OUT OF THE PIT. And when he had shaved himself and changed his clothes, he came in before Pharaoh.”

    Joseph Rises to Power

    “[37] This proposal pleased Pharaoh and all his servants. [38] And Pharaoh said to his servants, “Can we find a man like this, “IN WHOM IS THE SPIRIT OF GOD?”” [39] Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since GOD has shown you all this, there is none so discerning and wise as you are. [40] YOU SHALL BE OVER MY HOUSE, and ALL MY PEOPLE shall order themselves as you command. Only as regards the throne will I be greater than you.” [41] And Pharaoh said to Joseph, “See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.” [42] Then Pharaoh took his signet ring from his hand and put it on Joseph’s hand, and clothed him in garments of fine linen and put a gold chain about his neck. [43] And he made him ride in his second chariot. And they called out before him, “Bow the knee!” Thus he set him over all the land of Egypt.”




    Most have heard the history of Joseph and him being used of GOD to minister during the famine that beset Egypt “a few years ago”! The intriguing part of the story is that from “this world’s” standpoint Joseph was mistreated by his brothers and sold into slavery by them. His father, Jacob (later known as Israel), was greatly disheartened by this happening and grieved over Joseph’s demise for years! We MUST remember however that GOD HAS A PLAN and HE uses “bad things” done by HIS creation to draw Honor and Glory to HIS NAME!!!

    The trials of Joseph didn’t stop when he was sold though. Potiphar and his wife were used to elevate Joseph, AND THEN send him to the depths of the Egyptian prison. But Genesis 39:21 so sweetly reminds us that “But the LORD was with Joseph and showed him steadfast love and gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.” The LORD never left Joseph, even when he was imprisoned and used his turmoil to Glorify HIS NAME!

    In Genesis 41:14 Scripture records that “Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and THEY QUICKLY BROUGHT HIM OUT OF THE PIT”! Joseph interpreted the dream of Pharaoh and Egypt made it through the famine without peril. Was it because Joseph was a great scholar, or was well educated in the sight of man? Conversely, Joseph was CHOSEN by GOD ALMIGHTY and fulfilling GOD’S PLAN was the greatest thing he could possibly do, even when he was falsely accused by Potiphar’s wife!

    It was ONLY because ALMIGHTY GOD CHOSE Joseph that he was elevated to second in command over Egypt! Yes, Joseph had to remain faithful at the bottom of the well before being sold into slavery by his own family! Yes, Joseph had to SEE beyond the limited sight of Potiphar’s wife when temptation presented itself to him. When the TIME WAS RIGHT, GOD ALMIGHTY manifested “WHOM IS THE SPIRIT OF GOD” was in to the entire world! Joseph was obedient, GOD IS FAITHFUL, and GOD ORCHESTRATED “WHOM IS THE SPIRIT OF GOD” was in for ALL to SEE!!!
