We would all be dead bodies walking if it was not for God’s undeserved gift, life in the Spirit. Do we walk worthy? You know it is personal, Jesus walked to His death for you and you will meet Him face to face. That is personal. We are a part of His body, “the church of the firstborn enrolled in heaven.” (Hebrews 12:23) Do we walk worthy of this great gift?
“Therefore I, the prisoner of the Lord, implore you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love, being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.
But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. Therefore it says, ‘When He ascended on high,
He led captive a host of captives,
And He gave gifts to men.”’ (Ephesians 4:1-8 NASB)
According to the measure
Humility gratefully receives an undeserved gift no matter the measure. We all have received life, along with various abilities, and will one day give account. So, let us be diligent in the manor of His life. Remember that Jesus prayed, “I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me.” (John 17:23 NASB)
