This is found in Ephesians 4 in the Spirit-Filled Life Bible, NKJV. I found this very informative and wanted to share it with you.
Ep “4:3-6 Unity of the Spirit, POWER OF UNITY. Spiritual unity was so much a part of the life and teaching of early church that the apostle Paul assumed the presence of such unity. In this passage, he instructs us to do everything possible to keep or preserve the “unity of the Spirit” (v 3). The assumption appears to be that spiritual unity is the norm within the church when its members live under the control of the Holy Spirit. Therefor, it is a very serious matter to cause division among God’s people. In fact, Paul instructed the church to warn a divisive person twice and the reject him if he does not repent (Titus 3:9-11). Spiritual unity is at the very heart of the Christian faith and the life of Christ church. In this letter to the Ephesians church, Paul presents one of the most significant statements on spiritual unity shared andwhere in the Bible. He contends that in the church of Jesus Christ there is only one body, one Spirit, one hope, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father of all. (Acts 4:32, 33/Phil. 2:2) P. A. C.”
May the peace of God be with you today and everyday.
If you haven’t accepted Christ as your savior yet and would like to do so, please pray these words:
“Jesus, I acknowledge I am a sinner and I am in need of salvation. Thank you for your sacrifice on the cross. Come into my heart and make me new. Thank you for your gift of eternal life. Help me to learn to walk with you now. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
If you prayed that prayer, please tell someone that can help guide you in the next steps of your relationship with Jesus.
