DO YOU know what is meant by the words: “live in a way that is worthy”? Many of us try to grasp the concept, but how many of us actually live it?
Those serving in First Nations ministry have a good knowledge of the Word. The greater challenge is in living out the principles of the Word on a daily basis, regardless of the hardships they face.
TODAY, I INVITE YOU to pray with me that our Native people and those serving in Native Ministry, will have a walk worthy of their calling.
Ephesians 4:1-6 says “As a prisoner of the Lord, I beg you to live in a way that is worthy of the people God has chosen to be his own. Always be humble and gentle. Patiently put up with each other and love each other. Try your best to let God’s Spirit keep your hearts united. Do this by living at peace. All of you are part of the same body. There is only one Spirit of God, just as you were given one hope when you were chosen to be God’s people. We have only one Lord, one faith, and one baptism. There is one God who is the Father of all people. Not only is God above all others, but he works by using all of us, and he lives in all of us.”
Ask our Creator to allow our First Nations people and those serving in Native Ministry, to seek a life of peace that is worthy of their calling.

I like to study with 5 translations. As you go through these studies, I encourage you to do the same. “The Scriptures” is a translation that includes the original Hebrew names and has the books in chronological order. The Contemporary English Version (CEV) is a translation that is written for ‘oral tradition’ peoples and it flows well while reading it aloud. The Amplified version is one where meanings of words and phrases are ‘amplified’ for better understanding. The King James Version (KJV) is the translation that works well with Strong’s Concordance. The Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) is a great companion version that I find gives great insight.
Ephesians 4:1-6 – “I call upon you therefore, I the prisoner of the Master, to walk worthily of the calling with which you were called, with all humility and meekness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, being eager to guard the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace – one body and one Spirit, as you also were called in one expectation of your calling, one Master, one belief, one immersion, one Elohim and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.” (The Scriptures)
Psalm 69:6 – “Let not those who wait for You, O Master Yahweh of hosts, Be ashamed because of me; Let not those who seek You Be humbled because of me, O Elohim of Yisra’el.” (The Scriptures)
