Ephesians 4:4-6 NIV 2011
There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
Paul reminded the church at Ephesus to love and forgive one other. Because they were one body, Jew and Gentile, those acts would cement the body together in Christ. Colossians 1:27, “To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” All believers share the same hope found in Christ alone, whether in Colossae or Ephesus. Having all share in believer’s water baptism all entered into a relationship with one God and Father of all. Those who trust in Jesus are saved by His Son and transformed by His Spirit.
While fellowshipping with other believers, I immediately feel at one with them. We all love the Lord. The Holy Spirit gently guides me back when conversations start to wander. It is much the same when surrounded by family because we each share very similar history. Sitting quietly at Christ’s Church this afternoon in Dublin, I felt God’s presence as I prayed knowing all those praying were praying to the same God. Because I trust the Lord, I’ve been saved by Jesus and transformed by His Spirit.
Where do we see The Holy Spirit’s transformational work daily?
