Ephesians 4:7-10 — Conversations with God

But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it.  This is why it says:

“When he ascended on high,
he took many captives
and gave gifts to his people.”

(What does “he ascended” mean except that he also descended to the lower, earthly regions?  He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe.)

Thank You, Lord Jesus, for giving each of us a unique measure of Your gift.  You are the conquering King who has ascended to Your throne.  You are worthy to bestow these gifts because You first humbled Yourself to make that sacrifice, to finish that battle that secured our redemption.  And now we follow You, the exalted One, who is far above all the heavens.

You fill all things.  And You fill us, You fill me.  What will I do with Your gifts?  How will I make the most of what You have privileged me to receive?  May I be a faithful servant and a joyful catalyst of Your grace in the lives of others.
