doctrines of grace

But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. Therefore He says: “ When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive, And gave gifts to men.” Ephesians 4:7-8

As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God 1 Pe. 4:10

or I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith. For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them….  Rom.12:3-6

The doctrines of grace. No not those. I mean those other doctrines of grace;  the gifts given to each of us who are His, by His grace, that we might all minister to one another. Here is an excerpt from an article about this by Jim at Flee Babylon aka Modern American Christianity:

Quote:

“The grace of God, as clearly show in the scriptures, is inseparable from the gifts given to the many membered body of Christ.  God’s grace is not relegated to five points of doctrine and it has to do with far more then the manner in which God elects men.  The true grace of God has as much to do with the gifts given to various members of the body as with the salvation given to the various members of the body.  This is so that the Church might truly function like a body, rather than a roman catholic modeled religious institution.”
