For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. Romans
Comments, thoughts and reflections welcome
Therefore, I, the prisoner united with the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of the calling to which you’ve been called
Always be humble, gentle and patient, bearing with one another in love, and making every effort to preserve the unity the Spirit gives through the binding power of shalom. There is one body and one Spirit, just as when you were called you were called to one hope. And there is one Lord, one trust, one immersion, and one God, the Father of all, who rules over all, works through all and is in all.
One is powerful; one implies unity and strength. One is constant; one is pure. Look at all the facets oneness possesses.
One has no division; one works together, may be many but having one purpose. The cord composed of three or more strands is still one; it is combined to give strength.
Christ brought the peace of oneness. One call, one hope, one Lord, one body, one Spirit, one trust, one immersion, one God all give purpose and strength. All is the result of one love; the love of the Father for the creation, so lost, and their love in return. The same love sent Christ and provided his peace for all.
Pray – We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord and Your banner over us is love.
Repent – I repent for those times I am so focused on me I forget I am part of something much greater.
Ask – Keep my focus on our oneness in You
Yes – O how good, how pleasant it is for brothers and sisters to live together in harmony.
