ONE GOD AND FATHER OF ALL
 
Many times in our lives we struggle with each other and even take sides. How can we compromise and work it out?
 
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
None of us has the power and strength of will for overcoming our failings and sin on our own. We stand in constant need of our heavenly Father's grace, help, strength, and protection. Scripture describes God as our rock, refuge, fortress, and mighty loving power. We need God's help and discernment for distinguishing between truth and error, right and wrong, good and bad. The light of Jesus Christ reveals what is in our hearts and His grace frees us from sin, hurtful desires, and harmful addictions in our lives. God's call is urgent and His grace is available for total freedom and transformation in Christ Jesus. May we respond and choose a life of holiness and love.
 
St. Paul also urges the Ephesians to live their lives in a way that honors the call to holiness that they have received. They need to remember that for God, unity and peace among all people is the goal. Jew and Gentile alike - all of us - are called to the one hope, namely, that all may be one in unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.  There is "One Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of us all, who is over all and through all and in all."
 
Many times in our lives we struggle with each other and even take sides. How can we compromise and work it out? Our willingness to yield will unite us with the sacrifice of Jesus to win the ultimate victory! Jesus always counsels us to do all we can to "settle the matter." 
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: Our Challenge is very clear. We are one Body, one Lord, one faith, in one baptism.
