Thoughts on Ephesians 4:1-16

To walk in a manner worthy of the calling in which we have been called (I hope to, I want to.)

What does that look like?
• humility
• gentleness
• patience
• bearing one another in love
• eager to maintain unity of the Spirit

We must be “one”, because:
• One Body
• One Spirit
• One Hope
• One Lord
• One Faith
• One Baptism
• One God and Father of all

God gives us “gifts” according to His grace to equip us for the work of ministry. These are given to us for the purpose of building up the body of Christ. We might not be fully united now, but we should just continue to seek and obey God. To allow God’s Spirit to work in and through our lives..

until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ,
so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes.
Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped,
when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. (Ephesians 4:13-16 ESV)
