Ephesians, Chapter Four, Lesson One

WALKING IN LOVE            Page 5
V. 4 (Cont'd.)

** Just for the record, Who is the one Spirit?

The Holy Spirit! cf. 1Corinthians 6:19

** From what we learned in chapter one of this epistle, what is the Holy Spirit's role in the one hope of our calling?

We were sealed in that hope, and given the Holy Spirit as a pledge or down payment toward the fulfilling of that hope. cf. Ephesians 1:13-14

V. 5 ** Next, let's look at our beloved Savior - how many master's can a man have?

One! cf. Matthew 6:24, and there is only one Lord!
cf. Acts 4:12, Romans 10:9 & 12, 1Corinthians 8:6

** How is Jesus Christ tied to the one faith statement?

The unsaved world around us is in love with the concept of having faith. They simply believe in believing, without any reference to the so called reality in which they have placed their faith.
"I have faith that my football team will win the Super Bowl", "I have faith that my old car will continue running until I can get a new one", "I believe that for every drop of rain that falls, a flower grows". These are all statements that the world would view as honorable and courageous.

When the Bible speaks of one faith, it is talking about the only true faith that can save a man's soul from eternal death...faith in Jesus Christ! cf. Jude 1:3, Acts 6:7, Galatians 2:16, John 14:6

** What is meant by one baptism?

Unlike the work of the Holy Spirit in verse 4, baptizing or immersing us into the body of Christ, this is referring to the one sign of our identification with Christ given to us by the Lord, that of water baptism. cf. 1Corinthians.1:13-17, Acts 10:47-48, Matthew 28:19

V. 6 ** Alright, we have seen the Holy Spirit's part and our Lord Jesus Christ's part in being the basis for our "Walking in Love" - how about our one God and Father?

We have all derived our name from Him! cf. Ephesians 3:14-15
