United We Stand-Brethren!

Ephesians 4:1-6 (KJV)

I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;

Father as I read this verse I think of my savior who emptied Himself and became a man to give me direct access to the throne of grace. He is death rent the veil in two open up the Holy of Holies to a gentile like me. Therefore, how can I be haughty with my brethren? Your word has told me that my righteousness is as filthy rags. Or as the one thing that women hate to touch each month. That being said Father God remind me every single second of the day that being a child who exhibits longs unfeeling means that no matter how ticked off I am at my brother for whatever reason, love much be my response. This is so hard sometimes especially when my flesh wants to prevail.

3.Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5. One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 5.One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

Father, I also know that when my life is one that is a living witness of forbearance and long-suffering (taking the high road during conflicts) I am showing oneness with my brother, and I am living in the “bond of peace” brought about by the dwelling of the Holy Spirit. Living by the guidance of the Holy Spirit makes it possible for me to be a part of Family of God that is one in the faith because you are our one triune God and my Father. Father the guidance and direction the Holy Spirit is so needed each day of my life. I cannot be at one with my brothers and sisters without the guidance d the Holy Spirit. I cannot be Jesus to anyone without the direction of the Holy Spirit.I thank you for this precious gift Father and pray that my heart will be in tune with your will.

Titus 2:1-10 (KJV)

But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine: That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.

Father your word never leaves me without guidance and direction. It tells us exactly how we should live among our brothers.

The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.

Father, my deepest desire is to be a woman of God whose behavior shows that the precious Holy Spirit lives inside of her. A woman who is willing to teach the younger women in the body of Christ how to be Jesus to their mates, children, and the community as a whole. A woman who shows the oneness of the Godhead by being T one with my brothers and sisters. Father I do not want to be a lady that bring disgrace to the name of God. Neither do I want to be a woman who causes people in social media to blaspheme your name because of my online presence.  There should be a marked difference between my behavior as a child of God compared with someone who does not know you, Father.

In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all things; not answering again;10 Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.

Control my mind and my thoughts. Then my posts and conversations will reflect you and your love. Father, let your presence be felt, and the power of the cross be shown as I engage with my brothers and sisters in Christ locally, and throughout the world. Let your light shine through me so that people who do not know you Father like God will come to know because they see your light in me.

To be at one with the Body of Christ also means that I am at one with your Kingdom mission. Stretch me Father and give me an even more willing spirit to share your precious word, and tell of your marvelous grace to others so that they too may become a part of the Family of God.

In the mighty name of Jesus Father God, I pray for the healing of the Body of believers, restoration, reconciliation and forgiveness or a heart that is willing to forgive. That we may have hearts of flesh when dealing with each other and not hearts of stone.  That we may forget the hurts and pain after giving it to You. Amen and Amen.
