Reading Ephesians 4, you can’t help but notice the theme of unity. It is expressed clearly with the repeated number one:

One body (v. 4)
One Spirit (v. 4)
One hope of your calling (v. 4)
One Lord (v. 5)
One faith (v. 5)
One baptism (v. 5)
One God and Father of us all (v. 6)

Later, we learn that grace is given to everyone. (v. 7)

With what aim? The unity of the faith, the knowledge of the Son of God, making us complete (KJV perfect), unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ (v. 13).

There’s a lot to think about here.

  1. I just finished Ephesians a few days ago. Those verses do stand out. I have wondered how to balance them with Biblical separation. I've heard some people use these verses to avoid separation and ignore the verses that speak clearly of it. Of course, some people "separate" over the least preference and not over what the Bible says to. I guess the key is to separate over what the Bible says to and to stay unified otherwise.
