Ephesians 4 v 4-6
One body, one spirit - just as you were called to one
hope when you were called to 5one Lord, one faith,
one baptism; 6one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
Are you trying to think and be what you want to be or are you letting God do His work with out any trouble from you? This is hard for us to rest in Him to leave everything dead in us so all of Him can become a live in us. Remember we are His clay pot letting Him form is to what He envisions us to be. He may give us a glimpse of that vision so we won't loose our focus and leave Him when we are tempted from all other areas that are not Him. We are all called for the same purpose, but He may use us in different ways for that purpose depending on the gifts He may give us.Philippians 2 v 1-2 If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, If any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the spirit, if any tenderness and compassion2 make my joy complete by being like-minded, have the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. If you don't have any encouragement from being united with Christ, any comfort from his love, any fellowship with the spirit, and any tenderness or compassion. Then you need to turn to Christ and surrender what ever is holding you back from experiencing these wonderful gifts of comfort, love, tenderness, compassion so you can have complete joy in being like minded, sharing the same love, mind and purpose of Christ. We all are given different gifts depending on our maturity in our fullness in Christ, and the maturity is judged by our Lord not us. As we follow Jesus Christ and let him determine our steps we will grow in our unity because he will give us endurance to not give up by the love we share and He will give us encouragemnet to know we are growing through the spirit of unity He gives us. He does this so all of us can glorify Him in everything we do. Romans 15 v 5-6 May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus,6so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are not those that have selfish ambition in always wanting others to glorify us and give us our worth, so we will feel loved or liked by others. We do not put our soul out there to be filled with praise from others or our own accomplishments. We are not those that hold on to heavy burdens of guilt or shame. We are spirits thinking of others before our selves so they may know the freedom that we share. Philippians 2v3Do nothing out of selfish ambition or van conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves4Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also the interest of others. The closer you are to Him and His word the closer you are to be what He wants you to be, and that is all of us to have the fullness of Christ and all of us to experience the unity of freedom that only He can give us. Ephesians 4v12 to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13until we all reach unity in faith and in knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. We will not know who we are fully until we give Him ourselves fully. This is our jorney of Him making us into who He wants us to be; a never ending ONE love, we have for our ONE God we share with ONE another.
