Eph. 4:8‑14• 8Wherefore he says, Having ascended up on high, he has led captivity captive, and has given gifts to men.
9But that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended into the lower parts of the earth?
10He that descended is the same who has also ascended up above all the heavens, that he might fill all things;
11and *he* has given some apostles, and some prophets, and some evangelists, and some shepherds and teachers,
12for the perfecting of the saints; with a view to the work of the ministry, with a view to the edifying of the body of Christ;
13until we all arrive at the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, at the full-grown man, at the measure of the stature of the fulness of the Christ;
14in order that we may be no longer babes, tossed and carried about by every wind of *that* teaching which is in the sleight of men, in unprincipled cunning with a view to systematized error;
(Eph. 4:8‑14)

Matt. 25:15• 15And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to each according to his particular ability, and immediately went away out of the country. (Matt. 25:15)

Rom. 12:6‑8• 6But having different gifts, according to the grace which has been given to us, whether it be prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
7or service, let us occupy ourselves in service; or he that teaches, in teaching;
8or he that exhorts, in exhortation; he that gives, in simplicity; he that leads, with diligence; he that shews mercy, with cheerfulness.
(Rom. 12:6‑8)

1 Cor. 12:8‑11,28‑30• 8For to one, by the Spirit, is given the word of wisdom; and to another the word of knowledge, according to the same Spirit;
9and to a different one faith, in the power of the same Spirit; and to another gifts of healing in the power of the same Spirit;
10and to another operations of miracles; and to another prophecy; and to another discerning of spirits; and to a different one kinds of tongues; and to another interpretation of tongues.
11But all these things operates the one and the same Spirit, dividing to each in particular according as he pleases.
28And God has set certain in the assembly: first, apostles; secondly, prophets; thirdly, teachers; then miraculous powers; then gifts of healings; helps; governments; kinds of tongues.
29Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all in possession of miraculous powers?
30have all gifts of healings? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?

grace.
the measure.
 "The measure of the gift of Christ” (that is to say, as Christ sees fit to bestow). With regard to our position of joy and blessing in Christ, we are one. With regard to our service, we have each an individual place according to His divine wisdom, and according to His sovereign rights in the work. (Ephesians 4-5 by J.N. Darby)
 In Corinthians, the prominent thought is the Holy Spirit present in the Church, and whatever He does comes before us. And as the Holy Spirit works in an extraordinary manner, and is the power of that which is sensibly supernatural as well as that which meets the wants of the soul, hence all is brought before us there. But in Ephesians, where Christ is viewed in immediate relationship to His Church, and where it is His love and the care for the members of His body which flows out of that love, it is plain that whatever merely deals with the world and is a witness to unbelievers would be not needed but superfluous. (Remarks on Ephesians 4:7-11 by W. Kelly)
