(KJV.) EPHESIANS 4:1-3
(1) I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,
(2) With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
(3) Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
THE BOND OF PEACE
Brethren, as servants of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, let us fully understand who we really are in this world; for the world is watching our mannerisms; once we understand that we are sons and daughters of our Father, joint heirs with Jesus Christ, in eternal kingdom, have the same rights and privileges, exemplify ourselves in his righteousness, displayed attributes of integrities as holy men and women, love and respect others, regardless of who they are, saved or unsaved; look at things with the same perspective lenses of Jesus Christ; bearing marks of distinguish individuals, and serve him diligently, faithfully, joyfully, we are prequalified for final destinations of life.
There is nothing to fear, worry, have anxieties over in this world; we just have to believe in Jesus Christ as the fountainhead of our lives; Jesus is real!, how manytimes have we called upon his holy name, and are delivered, both physically and spiritually? when in difficult situations, what type of name pops into our hearts to call for deliverances? it is the holy name of Jesus! Jesus saves, there is no other name that can deliver souls, except his; therefore, let us come unto him, withdraw from his resources of life, have protections, victories, peace, and eternal lives.
Though we are in trouble times, let us have faith in Jesus Christ, continue to serve him with humble spirits, be submissive to the Holy Sprit, no matter how intensified sufferings maybe, let us control ourselves when enemies reproached, never give up the battle, like the children of Ephraim, being armed, and carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle, refer to Psalm 78:9; but embrace one another with love, never refrain from doing what is rightfully, persistently work together as one spiritual body of Christ, connect, secure oursleves in the peace of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Dearly beloved, let us pray for the peace of the world; before the ascension of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, he said, Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. per John 14:27; therefore, let us continue to seek that peace on earth forever and evermore. Peace, Peace be still! Amen and Amen!
