Ephesians 4:4-6 is a passage that is ignored by most people who call themselves “Christians." Here God teaches that in seven points of spiritual life there is but one of each, but practice in many churches and individual lives denies it. They say “one Lord,” but practice many faiths and diverse baptisms. There is, in fact, but "one Lord," and...

He is “Lord of all,” not only of a few. The word lord means “master." As in human relationships and responsibilities, Jesus is Lord whether we confess it and submit to Him, or not (Acts 10:36).

He is the One by Whom God will judge every soul (Acts 17:30-31). Though men may not acknowledge His existence and authority today, yet one day every soul shall do so (Rom. 14:1 1).

He is the One Whom God has chosen to be the means of our salvation from sin (Heb. 5:9, 12:2). Though men invent ways of salvation to suit their feelings or the times in which they live, yet “no man cometh unto the Father but by" Jesus (Jn. 14:6).

He is the One Whose word is the highest authority for determining right and wrong (Jn. 16:13). Men may vote, legislate or dictate, but the word of Christ will stand forever against all imaginations and inventions of others (I Pet. 1:23,25).

He expects every believer to believe and obey His every word (Jn. 5:24, 8:31, 14:15).

It simply will not do to call Him “Lord" and then ignore His word to make our own laws and practices in supposed worship and service of God (Matt. 7:21-23).
