Day 5: Walking in Unity and Humility

Walking in Unity and Humility

"As a prisoner for the Lord, then, 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.”- Ephesians 4:1-2

Have you ever felt the weight of responsibility that comes with being called a follower of Christ? The Apostle Paul, in his letter to the Ephesians, encourages us to embrace the calling we've received and live a life that truly reflects it. He outlines a beautiful path towards walking in unity and humility – two essential qualities that not only strengthen our relationships with one another but also mirror the heart of Christ.

Paul reminds us that being a Christian isn't just about following certain rules. It's about adopting a lifestyle that aligns with the high calling we've received from God. Our lives become living stones of testimonies to the transformative power of Christ. When we carry this devotion to God with reverence, our actions, words, and attitudes begin to reflect the love and grace we've encountered in our relationship with Jesus. Paul also calls to "be completely humble and gentle" as a reminder of the attitude Christ Himself displayed during His earthly ministry. Humility isn't a weakness; it's a strength rooted in the understanding that everything we are and have comes from God. It's a recognition that we're all on the same level ground before the cross, and no one is superior to another. Gentleness complements humility, fostering an environment where we treat each other with kindness, empathy, and respect.

We encounter people with diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and personalities in our faith journey. Paul advises us to be patient and bear with one another in love. This is a call to exercise patience not only in difficult circumstances but also in our interactions with fellow believers. Bearing with one another means embracing the imperfections and quirks of those around us, just as Christ has embraced ours. Love becomes the driving force behind our patience; this love is not driven by selfish ambition but one that loves people where they're at, enabling us to navigate conflicts and differences with a true Godly heart of compassion.

Pause for a moment to reflect on your life as a follower of Christ. Are you living in a way that reflects the high calling you've received? How can you intentionally cultivate humility, gentleness, patience, and love in your interactions with others? Take time to pray and ask God for the grace to walk in unity and humility, imitating the example of Christ.


Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You for the incredible calling I have received as Your child. Help me to live in a manner that reflects this calling in every aspect of my life. Teach me to embrace humility, gentleness, and patience, and fill my heart with Your love. Grant me the wisdom to bear with others in love, just as You have borne with me. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.

P.S. I'm still in awe of how many of you joined us this past Wednesday night. It was an amazing experience being in God's presence together. We heard countless stories of Holy Spirit speaking to each person that calls Christ Culture their church home during these 10 Days of Prayer. I'd be thrilled if you would join us in another prayer opportunity this Sunday, from 10 am to 10:25 am in the main auditorium at CC__C. Let's come together for a time of pre-gathering prayer and believe God for deeper transformation in our heart and in our church family.
