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).

    24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Now the new man inside me is the Holy Spirit of God that will guide me in truth. The flesh will still sin, but the washing of sin is the reading the Word of God. Thank God for the two edged sword. Love in Christ

    Verses 17 to 19 bring out how many people have decided to choose their own degraded course in life. God did not purpose for humans to live the way they do now in a degraded world.

    Irene 123 "A world wide redemption for the whole church is on the horizon." What is your reference for the statement? Who; what group, of people do you call "the whole church"? Thanks

    The Lord and His word are meant to be taken personally. Weather good or bad, it is always His decision. His word is " do not let the sun go down on your anger". Honesty, integrity, humility and The Fear of The Lord. This leads to life.
