Ephesians 4:1-6 reminded me today to lead a life worthy of my calling because I have been called by God! To do that, I need to be ONE minded… the mind of Christ that offers me the choice each day to be humble and gentle and patient with others, making room for others’ faults because of the Love he has given to me to flow through me to others.
The unity…the ONEness…that this kind of Love produces binds us together in peace.
I am called to this ONEness by the ONE Spirit of God because there is ONE body of Christ that has called us all to ONE glorious hope for the future. There is ONE Lord, ONE faith, ONE baptism and ONE God and Father who is over all… in all… and living through all of us.
Let’s follow this ONE in whom there is no confusion or contradiction who calls us to a life that is worth living!
