Ephesians 4:4-6 says, “There is one body and one spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.”
In this verse, we find the seven One’s, or the basis of the Church, along with the requirements for entry into the Church. Now, pause for a moment and think of the Church as a kingdom. You have the king of the kingdom in Jesus (1 Tim. 6:14-15). You have the law of the kingdom, which is the Gospel (Jam. 1:25). You have the territory of the kingdom, which is the entire world (Mark 16:15-16). And, finally, you have the subjects of the kingdom, Christians (Col. 1:13-14). The King has issued his decree and we, the subjects, are to sustain His kingdom and maintain the unity within His kingdom. Today, uphold the seven One’s of His kingdom and bring others into His kingdom!
