There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in the one hope of your calling, – one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of us all, who is above all and through all and in all.
I therefore, a prisoner in the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called with all humility and meekness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
Ephesians 4. 1
So then, putting away falsehoods, let us all speak the truth to our neighbor, for we are members of one another.
With all of these, take the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all flaming arrows of the evil one.
…knowing that whatever good we do, we will receive the same again from the Lord, whether we are slaves or free.
For he is our peace; in his flesh he has made both groups into one and has broken down the dividing wall, that is, the hostility between us.
For he is our peace; in his flesh he has made both groups into one and his broken down the dividing wall, that is, the hostility between us.
So you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are citizens with the saints and also members of the household of God.

attempt to related the two (as I do in my daily quote and blog entries) and
yet, sometimes that will happen, for as we know God works in mysterious ways.
