Our lesson from the beginning of Chapter 4 of Ephesians is the turning point of the book. Here, everything that came before telling us what God did for us, and tells us how we should live in light of this. In the church, the beautiful image of Jesus, however, is seen in the light of our brothers and sisters in Christ who often can be hard to bear with. So Paul begins his discussion on Christian living telling us Love one another, be Patient, gentle, humble, and bear with (put up with) one another, because they are your family.
