one hope

help-me-obi-wanI therefore, the prisoner in the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, making every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to the one hope of your calling, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, (Ephesians 4:1-5, NRSV)

There is one hope. And that is Obi-Wan Kenobi. Ok sorry I am a huge Star Wars fan if you didn’t already know that and when I read this passage I went to “you’re our only hope…”

But it is true we have only one hope.

We can put our trust in our own abilities.

We can put our trust in our significant others love and abilities.

We can put our trust in our parents’ abilities.

We can put our trust in our children’s abilities.

We can put our trust in anything but our one true and only hope and we will be let down.

Only in Jesus is our hope found and that is what unites us in His body. Regardless of the man-made things that we have the separate us, Christ unites us and He is our one and only hope!
