Therefore I, the prisoner united with the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called.
Always be humble, gentle and patient, bearing with one another in love,
and making every effort to preserve the unity the Spirit gives through the binding power of shalom.
There is one body and one Spirit, just as when you were called you were called to one hope.
And there is one Lord, one trust, one immersion,
and one God, the Father of all, who rules over all, works through all and is in all.
