Summary: Walk in a manner worthy of your calling, with the aid of his gifts (apostles, prophets, evangelists, shepherds and teachers), because Christ descended and ascended. The grounding for this text is Paul's reference to Psalm 68:18. This is significant to us because it was significant to Paul. Being an expert in the law, he shows us steadfastness of God's promise by connecting it with Christ's sacrifice. Also, in explaining how to walk in a manner worthy of your calling, Paul gives great insight to those whose calling is to be prophets, evangelists, shepherds and teachers. All of this culminates in one overarching purpose: build up the church in love . How? By speaking truth in love.
