As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. 2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. 3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 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?
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?
