Scripture Lesson: Ephesians 4:4-6
Today is the birthday of Hall of Famer, George Brett. In his 21 year career, Brett had 3,154 hits, 317 home runs, 1,595 RBIs and a lifetime batting average of .305. All 21 years were spent as a member of the Kansas City Royals. Brett continues today with the Royals as a vice-president and Spring Training instructor.
Paul gives us insight today on what it means to be a part of God’s team. Unity is the theme. There is one body, one Spirit, one hope, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father of all. The last part of verse six is indeed a statement of faith when Paul writes describing God as over all, through all, and in all. Team God is a team untied under the Lordship of Jesus Christ with God over all, through all, and in all!
