other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace. For there is one body and one Spirit, just as you have been called to one glorious hope for the future. Ephesians 4:1-4
Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you. Ephesians 4:32
Lord, help us to fully embrace Your calling on our lives. Thank you for helping us to identify all those characteristics not reflecting you, and also bringing the conviction to remove them and replace them with Yours. Lord help us be UNITED IN THE SPIRIT. Thank you for Your patience and forgiveness. Help us extend both to others when we may feel hurt or as though others may not "get" it. You know we're all on different points of the same continuum and it is Your will we all gather together as one, to glorify You. Thank you for helping us to support, edify and encourage one another as we each get to the place You'd have us all be. Thank You Jesus, amen!
