1 I am in prison because I belong to the Lord. God chose you to be his people, so I urge you now to live the life to which God called you.
2 Always be humble, gentle, and patient, accepting each other in love.
3 You are joined together with peace through the Spirit, so make every effort to continue together in this way.
4 There is one body and one Spirit, and God called you to have one hope.
5 There is one Lord, one faith, and one baptism.
6 There is one God and Father of everything. He rules everything and is everywhere and is in everything.
