Devotions for October 2, 2017

EPHESIANS 4:1-4

Unity in the Body
4 Therefore I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God. 2 Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. 3 Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace. 4 For there is one body and one Spirit, just as you have been called to one glorious hope for the future.

HUMBLE, GENTLE, PATIENT

Oh, how I wish these three words could increasingly be used to describe the church! Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we can and we will be more conformed to the life of Jesus Christ. We can hold on to the firm hope that he will transform us as we aspire to lives of obedience.

PERSONAL REFLECTION

Q: According to verse 4, what have you been called to as a disciple of Jesus?

Q: Which of the character attributes listed in verse 2 could you focus on this week?

Q: How could you serve your community and church this week? How might Jesus living his life out in you be impactful to others?
