This Sunday morning we will share communion and then continue to look at the necessary ingredients for establishing and maintaining unity in the church as laid out by the Apostle Paul in Ephesians 4:2
In this first segment of the passage Paul is explaining that unity amoung the believers has much to do with how we treat one another. Although fallen people have a tendency to be very aware of their own rights and sensitive to any violation of those rights; Paul is saying that this is not to be the case amoung the followers of Jesus. Using words like humility, gentleness, and patience; he insists upon a very high standard for Christian interaction.
I wonder if you would say that the Christians you have encountered, for the most part, line up with what Paul is describing here? What about you, is this how you treat brothers and sisters in Christ, and if not, why not?
I hope to see you Sunday for more along these lines in: “Grace at Work 3”
