For Christians only-- What does this scripture from Ephesians mean to you? Eph 4:11


This scripture appears two places in scripture, Corinthian and Ephesians. What do you believe it means to us. Eph 4:11-12 11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, NKJV

    how do we hone these men given to us as servant ministries? this scripture has nothing to do with gifts given to an individual, it is about servants, men anointed by God & given to the true church to help bring it to maturity

    great answer, they are ministries filled by SERVANT men anointed of God with one purpose and NEVER a position or title

    Charlie: What about I Timothy 3:1-5 re: "Bishop"? And "deacons" (v813)?

    What are u talking? Paul was "a vessel" through which JESUS spoke as HE did with The Prophets of Old! If you notice in I Cor 11:23 Paul "received of the Lord" which says JESUS spoke to him & told him what happened! Paul was not "just a man!"

    there are NO titles or professions in the NT church. These are men, anointed by God and given to the church for the purpose of Eph 4:12-16 these are ministries of love from below by SERVANT MEN, not positions over anyone. there is NO CLERGY
