Ephesians 4:12

12 For the 1aperfecting of the saints 2unto the work of the 3bministry, 2unto the 4cbuilding up of the dBody of Christ,


124 According to the grammatical construction, the building up of the Body of Christ is the work of the ministry. Whatever the gifted persons in v. 11 do as the work of the ministry must be for the building up of the Body of Christ. However, this building up is not accomplished directly by the gifted ones but by the saints who have been perfected by the gifted ones.
