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).

    Ephesians 4 vs 25,29,31 our words express the true conditions of our hearts.

    God, in Jesus name, I pray that we all, sons and daughters of you, would be able to bridle our tongues at all times regardless of any or under any circumstances and or conditions.

    Eph. 4:8 - This is a ref. to Jesus descending into hell to rescue the O.T. saints who died in faith, Jesus having the KEYS of death and hell, Rev. 1:18. The 'gifts' to men came in Acts 2:38; the MAIN gift was the Holy Ghost from which came all the gifts of - healing, casting out devils, teachers, pastors, etc. Line upon line,.....precept upon precept, Isa. 28:10.

    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
  • Nathaniel
    May our God help us to use words that build up, not destroy, other people.
  • Irene123
    I like Sharon's comment on v. 5 - AMEN! I love the whole chapter. Verse 26 - since I r'cvd the Holy Ghost - I don't get angry. It just takes too much energy. It's so much easier to go into prayer mode. Anger just keeps feeding on itself (and feeding on your body). I'm not saying I won't get angry one day, I am human - still.
