Ephesians 4:1-3 A Worthly Walk CLICK TITLE FOR AUDIO

When you got saved, God called you to a special job.  This job is your vocation.  Paul wanted the Ephesians to walk worthy of that call – I Tim 1:9; Phil 3:14.  We are all called to pray (Lk 18:1), all called to witness (Acts 1:8), all called to do his will (I Th 4:3; 5:18; Rom 12:1-2; I Pet 2:15 do right).  In addition to his will for you, he has a plan for you – i.e. a specific ministry.  And when you do it he gives you guidelines.  You are to do it in:

Lowliness (v. 2)

    • Matt 11:29
    • Ps 138:6
    • Phil 2:3

Meekness (v. 2)

    • Matt 11:29
    • Gal 5:22-23
    • Num 12:3
    • Bowed his face and spared the Jews

Longsuffering

    • I Cor 13:4
    • Ex 34:6
    • Gal 5:22
    • Col1:11

Forbearance

    • Exercising patience and restraint
    • Refraining from enforcing rights
    • Rom 3:25
    • Col 3:13

Love

    • I Jn 2:5-6
    • I Jn 4:11-12

Unity of the Spirit (v. 3)

    • Amos 3:3
    • Rom 16:17-18
    • Eph 4:4-6 (one)

Peace (v. 3)

    • which is a Bond among believers
    • Col 3:14-15

Walk like that and you’ll walk right into God’s plan.  If you have to violate some of these, you are not in the plan.
