“There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.” Ephesians 4:4-6
Did you notice one word in the above passage that stood out among the rest? The word “one” is used seven times in these three verses. I think Paul wants us to understand that there should be unity among all believers. Notice how Paul reveals that it is the triunity of God that brings unity to His children. We see the spirit in verse 4, the Son in verse 5, and the Father in verse 6.
I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to visit many churches throughout the world in my lifetime. I’ve been to churches in India where flags are being waved and people are dancing on pews and I’ve been to churches in Eastern Europe where people are stoic, not even cracking a smile, yet even in these diverse churches I felt as though I was part of the body. We, the body of Christ, come in all shapes and colors and have many different ways of worshipping our Father. Rather than let those things act as walls that divide us, why not use them to teach us how to walk in unity?
This Sunday we are going to dig deeper into this important topic as we open Ephesians 4:1-16 and learn how to “Walk in Unity”. Join us as we worship the Lord and share in communion together. God bless you all and hope to see you there!
