Into Practice …

Called by God …

Ephesians 4:1-6 NLT

[1] Therefore I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God.

[2] Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love.

[3] Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace.

[4] For there is one body and one Spirit, just as you have been called to one glorious hope for the future.

[5] There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism,

[6] one God and Father of all, who is over all, in all, and living through all.

Reflection …

Our calling is to follow Christ!

It is important that we live out that calling by living in unity with one another and treating each other with all humility, patience and gentlenesses.

Think on this question:

Are our neighbors and those around us drawn into deeper fellowship with us by our humility, patience and gentleness or pushed away and kept at a safe distance because we fail to exhibit these qualities?
