I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord beseech (Urgent and fervently ask of) you that ye walk (Live) worthy of the vocation (Divine call) wherewith ye are called (Destined/Purpose).
With all lowliness and meekness (humble), with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
Lowliness – the absence of any feelings of being better than others.
Longsuffering – patiently enduring hardship (wrongs or difficulties).
Forbearing – accepting pains and hardships calmly or without complaint
Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all
But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ
Some have a greater anointing but the thinking (mind/enemy) talks us out of it!!!
Pastor Ron Carpenter 12/12/12 Wednesday night sermon
Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.
(We are no longer bound, unless we think we are).
Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?
He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.
And he gave some, apostles; and some prophets; and some evangelist; and some pastors and teachers;
For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with the every wind of doctrine(principle, system of belief, teachings or instructions), by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
Once we get this the perfecting we are to become Mature, not easily swayed from the TRUTH (Word) by the enemy’s deceit and lies.
But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. Read less
