Make Every Effort To Maintain Unity (Ephesians 4)

If you had to choose one goal on which to focus the next year of your life, what would it be?

Why is it sometimes beneficial to focus our attention on one thing?

Read Ephesians 4:1-6. What do you think is the key word of this passage?

Which phrase in these verses do you find most compelling? Why?

Read verses 4-6. How would you describe a church that is "one" in purpose?

Rewrite verse 3 in your own words. Make a list of 3-5 things you can do personally to "keep the unity" among Christians.

Verse 2 lists four virtues which are important to creating unity. Which of the four is easiest for you? Which is more difficult? Why?

Who do you know that exhibits some of these virtues? What are some examples of how you've seen these virtues in action?

What do you think it means to "bear with one another?" Who do you know that you need to bear with? How will you do that?

What relationships in your life lack unity right now? How might you improve those relationships by being humble, gentle or patient?

What is one specific thing you can do to improve one of those relationships?
