I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.
Be completely humble and gentle;
be patient, bearing with one another in love.
Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit
through the bond of peace.
There is one body and one Spirit,
just as you were called to
one hope when you were called;
one Lord, one faith, one baptism;
one God and Father of all,
who is over all and through all and in all.
But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it.
So Christ himself gave
the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers,
to equip his people for works of service,
so that the body of Christ may be built up
until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God
and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
~ Ephesians 4:1b-7, 11-13
