One God and Father
The Upward Look
by Max D. Hutto,
“one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.” Ephesians 4:6 NASB
While the church is composed of believers from all over the world, from all races and nationalities, from all economic and social backgrounds, these believers all worship one God and Father. The church maintains its unity by submitting to the Father. He is transcendent, above all and over all. He transcends matter, time, and space. He is beyond our understanding and comprehension. He is also immanent, through all and in all. He is always with us and completely knows us, and we can know Him. The church, every believer, is united by God the Father.
Lord God, I am amazed by who You are. Guide me to carry out Your plan and purpose in Your church, unified with all believers to bring You glory and honor.
