Ephesians 4:1-6 I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
The message today was amazing. I loved it.
Very applicable, I really need to work on everything he was talking about. I'm proud, harsh, impatient, and unloving...and I've been called to be humble, gentle, patience, and loving. =\ That's a major problem. I'm a self-serving person in all of my relationships. Probably most though in my relationship with my God. But also with all of my friends and family...hmmm oh dear, I need to work on this.
Far to often I stray from the calling. And even when I don't "stray" I try to walk all on my own, using my own strength.
Next train of thought!
Sorta switching gears for a second; this morning on the way to church my mind was kinda wandering. And my thoughts drifted and floated around until I thought once again of how so often it's in our weaknesses that God uses us the most. And how His glory is shown through our brokenness.
Then why is it we try soo hard to be strong. Why is it we try so hard to avoid things that will break us. Why do we get so upset when we are broken? Why is remaining whole such a top priority.
Hmmm break me. mold me. use me.
