Being Christian

Are you being an advocate of love, peace and unity?

Ephesians 4:1-3

I, then, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to live in a manner worthy of the call you have received, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another through love, striving to preserve the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace.

St. Paul’s message was not only meant for the congregation in the city of Ephesus, it was meant for all followers of Christ.

And his message remains the same for us today.

Each of us needs to ask ourselves: “Am I living in a manner worthy of the call I have received?”

What is the “call” that you have been given?

If you are a living, breathing human being…then you have been given a call!

Each of us is called to serve in some capacity based on our individual talents, interests and passions.

And we’re meant to do so with humility, gentleness and patience, “bearing with one another through love, striving to preserve the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace.”

The world is in dire need of more people awaking to their calling and then being servants with Christ’s mission.
