evening scripture

November 8, 2008

But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it.  This is why it says “When he ascended, he led captives in his train and gave gifts to men.”  (What does “he ascended” mean except that he also descended to the lower earthly regions.  He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens in order to fill the whole universe.)  It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works of service so that the Body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
