Protecting the Gift

5 06 2013

John 6:63 ESV

It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.

Ephesians 4:1-3 ESV

I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

The gift and the call are the same, and both come from Jesus through Holy Spirit. They are a call to freedom found in the Truth, Jesus.  We will know the truth and the truth will set us free.  Once we receive the call, our responsibility is to respond and maintain our walk through humility, gentleness, patience and love.  By pursuing Holy Spirirt and positioning ourselves to align with Him, we will protect our unity and foster peace.  At the moment our pride, or selfish ambition, gets in the way, we will witness strife, discord, and dissension and lose our peace.  May we always strive toward Holy Spirit.
