ephesians-4-11Ephesians 4:11.
And He gave on the one hand apostles, on another hand prophets, still others evangelists, and others pastors and teachers, 12. for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of the Messiah, 13. until we would all attain in the unity of faith and the knowledge of the Son of God, into a mature person, to the measure of the full maturity of the Messiah, 14. so that no longer would we be infants, being tossed about and carried by every wind of teaching in the craftiness of men, in cunning with deceitful scheming, 15. but that being truthful in love we would bring to maturity all the things in Him, Who is the Head, Messiah, 16. from Whom the whole body of Messiah is being joined together and uniting through every ligament that serves for support, according to working in a measure by each individual part, He is making the body grow, building itself up in love.
