Unity of the Spirit

Children at Asapalli in Assam, India coming together in Worship at VBS

Ephesians 4:1-4 ” The calling with which you have been called with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing forbearance to one another in love, being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. For there is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling, one Lord, one faith one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all through all in all.

There is a lot to unpack, but what we can understand is the oneness, the unity of the spirit in us all. It is the egoity that caused the idea that we are separate; yet in God we are all one, in His spirit we are one. To increase this knowing is the key through deep meditation in Christ. In the silence of His love, His peace we grow in unity and understanding. This can not be realized through worship but through devotion and solitude. Examine the time you are alone in Christ and the time you spend in prayer, reflection, repentance and mediation. Always remember you are now, have always been and shall always be made in the divine image of He who presides over us all. And in that nature you are free, you one in God.

Mid-Week Prayer: ” Lord I seek greater understanding of this theme of oneness in Thee. I sometimes wonder if I ever understand the level of peace, of joy , of kindness that is in Thee and in me. Lord I tend to identify with the shallowness of my self and what I perceive through me fine senses. Lord help me to go deeper. Father help me to see Thee in all and to experience Thee in all. Amen!!”
