Ephesians 4:1-3

I therefore, the prisoner in the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called, 2 with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, 3 making every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

Questions to consider:
  • What do you think "the calling to which you have been called" is?
  • What might it mean to live a life worthy of that calling?
  • What does it mean to bear with one another in love?
  • What might prevent you from "bearing with one another in love"?
  • How can you maintain the unity of the Spirit?
Possibilities for prayer:

Humility, gentleness, patience, and love are all qualities to which we can and should aspire. Today, let's think of the ways in which we might have fallen short in representing these things and ask God to show us ways in which we ca grown ever stronger into them, that we might lead lives worthy of the calling.
