  1. For this cause, I bend my knee to the Father
          from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named
  1. To him now, who is able to do beyond measure above all that we ask or think
  2. to him be glory, in the church, and in Christ Jesus
          throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

Walk worthy of the calling:

  1. I therefore encourage you, I, the prisoner of the Lord
    to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called
  2. with all lowliness and gentleness
    with longsuffering, bearing one another in love
  3. that we migh no longer be infants
  4. but rather practicing the truth in love
          we may grow up into him in all things
          who is the head, Christ

Walk occurs 7 times in Ephesians

2:2 in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience—
2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
4:1 I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called,
4:17 Now this I say and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds.
5:2 And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
5:8 for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light
5:15 Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise,


  1. striving to preserve the one-ness of the Spirit
    in the bond of peace
  2.       one body
          and one Spirit
          even as you were called in one hope of your calling
  3.       one Lord
          one faith
          one baptism
  4.       one God and father of all
    who is over all, and through all, and in all (things)


  1. until we all arrive
          at the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God
          at the complete/mature/perfected human
          at the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ


  1. But to each of us was given grace
    according to the measure of the gift of Christ
  2. And he gave
          apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers
  3. for the equipping of the holy ones
          for the work of serving
                for the building up of the body of Christ
