Unity in the Body of Christ
1 I therefore, being prisoner in the Lord, pray you that ye walk worthy of the vocation whereunto ye are called,
2 With all humbleness of mind, and meekness, with longsuffering, supporting one another through love,
3 Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your vocation.
5 There is one Lord, one Faith, one Baptism,
6 One God and Father of all, which is above all, and through all, and in you all.
7 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.
8 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.
9 (Now, in that he ascended, what is it but that he had also descended first into the lowest parts of the earth?
10 He that descended, is even the same that ascended, far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)
11 He therefore gave some to be Apostles, and some Prophets, and some Evangelists, and some Pastors, and Teachers,
12 For the gathering together of the Saints, for the work of the ministry, and for the edification of the body of Christ,
13 Till we all meet together (in the unity of faith and the acknowledging of the Son of God) unto a perfect man, and unto the measure of the age of the fullness of Christ,
14 That we henceforth be no more children, wavering and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the deceit of men, and with craftiness, whereby they lay in wait to deceive.
15 But let us follow the truth in love, and in all things, grow up into him, which is the head, that is, Christ.
16 By whom all the body being coupled and knit together by every joint, for the furniture thereof (according to the effectual power, which is in the measure of every part) receiveth increase of the body, unto the edifying of itself in love.
1 Corinthians 14:8
And also if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to battle?
"Let not Geneva be forgotten or despised. Religious liberty owes it most respect." John Adams, the second president of the United States
Before, and many years after the KJV was printed, the GENEVA BIBLE was the People's Choice, but an ungodly King made it illegal to publish it any longer: http://www.genevabible.org/Geneva.html Click on "Geneva Bible History" on my site.Yahoo Group Owner
