People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 4:6


Eph 4:6 One God. Not gods many, but one God for all; "The Father of all, above all, through all, in all". Meyer, upon this passage, says that the elements of church unity are: (1) The church itself constituted as a unity: One Body, one Spirit, one Blessed Hope. (2) The means by which this united church is built up: One Lord, one Faith, one Baptism. (3) Over all one Supreme Ruler, the God and Father of all. Bishop Pearson, on the creed, notes "Points of Unity of the Church". He enumerates, (1) Unity of the Head; (2) Unity of the Spirit dwelling in it; (3) Unity of hope; (4) Unity of faith; (5) Unity of ordinance for admission; (6) Unity of the one Father; (7) Unity or organization, one Body.

The first tendency of a guilty conscience is to run and hide and then right on its heels to lie about it. We come to the light TO BE MANIFESTED!
