Ephesians 4:1-8
 
“Unity and Maturity in the Body of Christ”
 
1 As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.
2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called;
5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism;
6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
7 But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it.
8 This is why it[a] says:

   “When he ascended on high,
   he took many captives
   and gave gifts to his people.”[b]

I hope and pray this scripture will speak to you and facilitate a daily relationship with God. I encourage you to go beyond just reading these passages. Read them, re-read them, meditate, and pray on them. Discern for yourself what God is saying to you through the scripture. When and how you do that is entirely up to you. — Kelly Parker
