Readings:

“Each One of us a Gift” – Pastor Peter Eaton

Ephesians 4:7-16

“..could it not be that [..] passivity in interpersonal, spiritual ministry—rob us of some of Christ’s precious remedies for a hundred problems? If God designed the church to function like a body with every member ministering in the power of the Holy Spirit to other members, in regular interpersonal relationship, then would it be surprising to find that the neglect of this regular interpersonal, spiritual ministry cripples the body in some of its functions and causes parts of the body to be weak and sick? Isn’t that what you would expect?” – John Piper, Desiring God

..the higher reaches of the Christian life cannot be attained in isolation from others – Frederick F. Bruce, Epistle to the Ephesians
