Ephesians 4:2-3 “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.”
The church must strive for unity and a “bond of peace” and this can only be done when we remain humble, patient and bear “with one another in love.”
Paul knows this is not easy and why he writes that we must “make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit.” Relationships take work.
Everyone has different preferences so we must have love in accepting one another’s differences. God accepted us through Christ when we didn’t deserve it.
