THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

 The Gifts of Jesus

 At the end of Ephesians chapter 2, Paul, writing to Gentiles, tells them how in Christ their status has changed from being outsiders to becoming insiders. We become citizens, family and ultimately a temple where God, by his Spirit, lives. In Ephesians chapter 4, Paul goes on to talk about the specific gifts Jesus gave to the church to make this transition from outsider to insider a reality in each of our lives. Read and reflect on Ephesians 2:14 - 4:16
