Unity and Maturity in the Body of Christ1As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. 2Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. 3Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. 4There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; 5one Lord, one faith, one baptism;
6one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. 7But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it.
