The gift of Christ’s grace (Eph. 4:7)

“But each of us

Was given a grace

According to the measure

Of Christ’s gift.”

Ἑνὶ δὲ ἑκάστῳ ἡμῶν ἐδόθη ἡ χάρις κατὰ τὸ μέτρον τῆς δωρεᾶς τοῦ Χριστοῦ.

Paul said, “But each of us (Ἑνὶ δὲ ἑκάστῳ ἡμῶν) was given (ἐδόθη) a grace (ἡ χάρις) according to the measure (κατὰ τὸ μέτρον) of Christ’s gift (τῆς δωρεᾶς τοῦ Χριστοῦ).”  Paul explained that Christ has gifted each one of us with a special grace according to what he wanted to accomplish.  Every baptized believer had a grace from Jesus Christ that helped to build up the Christian community or church.  We had all received the gift or God’s grace.  Do you act on God’s grace to you?
