Ephesians 4.1-6 – June 8, 2020

Ephesians 4:1–6

As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. (Ephesians 4:1–6, NIV)

You have been called by God. Are you living up to that calling?

Thought Questions:

What does it mean to be a prisoner for the Lord? Do you see this as a good thing or something to be avoided? Why?

Why does our culture shun the very things Paul lists here as qualities of a worthy life? How can we exemplify these even as they are dismissed as “weak” or “irrelevant?”

What have you done to bring about peace today?
