God provides leadership gifts to strengthen and mature each local church in Christ.
The Lesson Overview
Every Christian is called to be a minister, or servant, of the gospel of Jesus Christ. This calling is not relegated to just those in vocational ministry. And so as believers live in submission to the Lord, their actions and the use of their gifts will not only impact themselves. They will also have an impact on the church as a whole. Unity in the church is the result of each Christian’s personal walk with Christ. Therefore, the believer should be engaged in ministry as well as act in the gifts of the Spirit. This in turn should edify the church both spiritually and numerically. The leadership gifts discussed in this lesson are meant to equip the saints to do just that.
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ (KJV).
