Ephesians 4:1-4

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: one body and one Spirit, as you were also called to the one hope of your call.

This is a timeless message from St. Paul to all the followers of Christ.

He wrote it while imprisoned for preaching this type of message about the oneness of all.

He went on to say that we are all here to build up the body of Christ (Ephesians 4:12).

We are all part of one body and one Spirit.

Hear his message again: with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another through love, we are to strive to preserve the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace.

This is my call.

This is your call.

Bear with one another through love!

We simply must take this to heart as we deal with all the issues of our day.

It is what is expected of us.

When we go before God one day, this truly will be all that mattered: Did we live in a manner worthy of the call we have received?

Let us stop dividing; let us stop hating and ridiculing.

Despite our differences, let us come together as one body.

Each of us is being called!
