People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 4:5


Eph 4:5 One Lord. Christ, the Head of the church (1Co 1:13 Eph 1:10). All saints have one Master. One faith. One Lord who is the object of faith, and whom both Jews and Gentiles lay hold upon by faith in him. One baptism. All have been baptized into the "one Lord" upon the profession of the "one faith" by one rite. It would be utterly inconsistent with the Apostle's argument, if there could be anything divisive about baptism, as three different ways of administering itself. He is showing that there is unity in each one of seven essential features of Christianity, and hence all should seek to "keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace" (Eph 4:3).

    Scripture supports the idea that there is only one Supreme God. God is above all so God would not be equal to anyone or anything.

    I think that all our word's should be good word's. Not nothing that's going to hurt some one like name calling and other bad word's,but word's of encouragement like every things going to be alright,God love's you,you can make it,and so on.
  • Balan Saram
    Ephesians 4:29 clearly tells us that the same mouth that we say our prayer, eat and drink we should not be using vulgarities and bad mouth others. Its basic common sense. This verse has wake me up. God bless
