The only way to unify the Common wealth of Israel- the hope of the calling ( Ephesians 4:1-16) (Ephesians 4:1-16)JS LOWTHER- RNCM, September 21, 2019
Part of the Ephesianism series, preached at a SABBATH BIBLE STUDY service
This is the review and recap section of an exegetical text study and expository reading on the context of Ephesians; re looking at Ch. 4:1-16 in preparation for the next half of the book of Ephesians. It is straight forward from the words of Paul in context of a well known Scriptural narrative to help show the super-nature of :
1. The will of God
2. The faithful in Christ
3. The redemptive blood of Christ unto forgiveness of sin
4. The riches of YHWH God’s Grace, Glory and Mercy
5. How the Nations of Promise are raised by the word of God
6. How the Individual is called into Christ's Called out ones: His Church
7. The greatness of the Lordship of Christ over all ages
8. The role of God's people in the ages and the ages to come
It is with hopes that this study of clear scripture will show a concise base for salvation by Grace, as understood by all the faithful having it’s effect determined in the Purpose of God who works all things according to the council of HIS own Will.
9. The Unity of the Church and the Hope of Her Calling

1I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, 2With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; 3Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. 7But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. 8Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. 9(Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? 10He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) 11And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: 16From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. (KJV)
