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).

    Thank God we have the Holy Spirit who is always with us in our walk with the Lord. If we are going to depend on our own efforts to fulfill the demands of Scripture and please God we will never get there Jesus says "...apart from me you can do nothing" Jh 15:5 We pray to God in Jesus name and depend on the Holy Spirit to help us in all things it makes life easier.
  • A disciple
    Kent, YES but don't look for them to be splashed all over the internet, or on TV: as the true servants of Jesus will also walk in the steps of the Master, and not be seeking for people to recognize them. Like the Lord said; "the tree is known by its fruit;" to whomsoever God gives a gift, it will be from what is really put in him from God; and nothing manufactured by his own doings or methodology.
  • Kent
    in verse im so confused for what paul said , are there apostles and prophets today ?
  • BSP
    Verse 31 shows negative traits and behavior that we need to put away. We must learn to control our temper and our speech when dealing with others.
