All is rooted in love

1 As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. 2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. 3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to one hope when you were called— 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

I read out of Ephesians 4 today as part of the devotions I'm doing for the church in Greenhills. Verse 2 in particular struck me because it contains three character traits that I strive to have but really don't have naturally, and thus I rely on and need the grace of God to make it happen.

Lord, I need you.
