Light for My Path Daily Devotion
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. (Ephesians 4:1-6 ESV)
Hymn ELH 418:1,7 How Fair the Church of Christ Shall Stand
How fair the Church of Christ shall stand,
A beacon light in all the land,
When love and faith all hearts inspire,
And all unite in one desire
To be a family and agree
To live in peace and unity.
O gracious God, wilt Thou my heart
So fashion in each secret part,
That Thou be sanctified in me,
Till Thee in heaven above I see,
Where holy, holy, holy Lord,
We sing to Thee with one accord.
Heavenly Father, help me to live peacefully with my fellow believers, knowing the hope that we all share. Forgive me when I do not act with humility, gentleness and patience and restore me, in Your grace, through faith in Your Son, Jesus Christ. In His name I pray. Amen.
