Called

 

One Lord, one faith
one baptism

one God and Father
of all

one body and
one Spirit

one hope in which
we’re called.

**********

I have been called for You are with me.

**********

“I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called . . .”

“There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling;”

“one Lord, one faith, one baptism;”

“one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.”

Ephesians 4:1,4,5,6. NKJV

Just As He Pleased

 

We are
the body of Christ

and members
individually

given gifts
by the same God

for manifestation
and edifying.

***********

You are with me and have placed me within the body of Christ with specific gifts for the profit of all.

**********

“There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.”

“There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord.”

“And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all.”

“But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all.”

“But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased.”

1 Corinthians 12:4,5,6,7,18. NKJV

Growing Up

“. . .that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro . ..

. . .but speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head – Christ

from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.”  Ephesians 4:14-16

We hear a lot about growing churches today, but Paul seemed more interested in us growing strong in the Lord.

Lord, we desire to grow in the callings You have given each of us, so that the body of Christ will be strong and healthy.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

A Healthy Body

Knitted together
so we can be

at our best
strong and healthy

as one body
of individual callings

loved and loving
always edifying.
