Ephesians 4
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.”

From my commentary:
“One may picture a military leader returning to Jerusalem at the head of his followers, after routing an enemy army and taking many prisoners.”

Grace was given: We all have grace given to us according to the measure of Jesus’ gift. This is basis for God’s distribution of spiritual gifts through His church: grace, the free, unmerited giving of God. No one deserves or has earned spiritual gifts.

I read this and think, grace was a battle victory that was divided up amongst God’s people.
