These grace ministries will function until we all attain oneness into the faith, until we all experience the fullness of what it means to know the Son of God, and finally we become one into a perfect man with the full dimensions of spiritual maturity and fully developed into the abundance of Christ.'
the Pasion Translation is the only translation I can find that says “These grace ministries” which is little odd, so I have to ask myself would the Apostle Paul have highlighted the word “grace” when he spoke about Apostle, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, and Teachers? In Ephesians 4:11.
Let’s see, in Romans 12:3 Paul says, “through the grace given to me” and again in Romans 12:6, and Romans 15:15, 1 Corinthians 3;10, 1 Corinthians 15:10, on and on Paul makes it clear that it was “Grace” that powered his ministry.
So yeah, Paul would have highlighted or included the importance of operating in grace for ministry.
Now, I have to ask “why hasn’t the Church attained the oneness into the faith, why haven’t we yet experienced the fullness of Christ, way have we not been made spiritually mature yet?
Is it because not many ministries highlight the importance of grace, or is it because too many preach a little grace and a little law, is that way there is so much division among the Church, is that why the world is in the shape it's in?
If it's by Grace you have been saved through faith, then it`s also by Grace through faith that you Minister, Preach, Teach and Prophesy.
Pau’s ministry was very grace minded it was the reason, it was the function, you could say it was the who, the way and the what, Apostle Paul’s ministry was all because of grace!
So, until our ministries, become “all because of grace”, the Church will remain divided, immature and lacking in the fullness of Christ. Resulting in the world remaining a mess.
So, make your Ministry “all because of grace” and the world will become a better place.
