Insight to the Word

In Ephesians 4:11–16, the apostle Paul defined the pattern for the life of the church. God has given gifted leaders to the church—not for the purpose of doing the work of ministry, but for the purpose of equipping the people so that they can do the work of the ministry. Notice verses 11–12: “So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.” This is a different approach from what we often see in our churches today.
