Today's reading: Ephesians 4:1-16

Paul's message turns to the need of having and maintaining unity among believers in Ephesians 4:1-16. To help drive home his point, he highlights the word “one” by repeating it numerous times as he explains unity.

"There is one body and one Spirit--just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call--one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all" (vs. 4-6).

Paul then turns to the functioning of the body of Christ, setting out how when this group is in unity, "it makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love" (vs. 16).

Is it your goal to be in unity with other believers, especially those in your local church? How would you describe the way you are functioning within the body of Christ? What’s one thing you can do over the next few weeks to foster, promote and/or maintain unity within your church? Tami
