(7) But unto every one of us is given grace.--This verse should be rendered, To every one of us the grace (the one "grace of the Lord Jesus Christ") was given--that is, given in the Divine purpose in the regeneration of the whole body, although it has to be received and made our own, separately in each soul, and gradually in the course of life. It was and is given "according to the measure of the gift of Christ." (See below, Ephesians 4:13-16.) In Him it dwells "without measure" (see John 3:34); He gives it to each according to the measure of his capacity to receive it in faith (called in Romans 12:3 the "measure of faith"). Compare with this verse the fuller description of the differences of "gifts," "ministries," and "operations" in 1Corinthians 12:4-6, in which passage there is the same general reference to the Three Persons of the Holy Trinity; but the particular reference is there to the Holy Spirit, while here it is to the Son.

Verses 7-16. - VARIETY OF GIFTS IN CONNECTION WITH UNITY; USE TO BE MADE OF THEM. Verse 7. - But to each one of us was grace given according to the measure of the gift of Christ. In the Church all do not get alike; grace is not given in equal measures as the manna in the wilderness; Christ, as the great Bestower, measures out his gifts, and each receives according to his measure. Compare parable of talents. "Grace" does not refer merely to supernatural gifts, but also to the ordinary spiritual gifts of men. These are varied, because what each gets he gets for the good of the rest; the Church is a fellowship or brotherhood, where each has an interest in all and all in each, and is bound to act accordingly.
