The Unity of Our Faith
Topic: Default Scripture: Ephesians 4:4–4:6
The loving unity to which we are called in Ephesians 4:1-3 is rooted in a common faith - initiated and preserved by God - and must be treasured, guarded, and passed down.
~ We have been called to sacrificially and lovingly maintain the unity of our church (vss. 1-3):
> As members of Christ body (vs. 4a)
> Indwelt and sealed by the Spirit (vs. 4a).
> Hoping in our sure calling (vs. 4b)
> Trusting and obeying Jesus Christ (vs. 5).
> Enjoying union with him (vs. 5).
> Kept by God the Father for His own glory (vs. 6).
