One Lord (devotional)

I have been going through a devotional this year called, Everyday with Jesus (also calledWonderful Names of Our Wonderful Lord by T.C. Horton and Charles Hurlburt). I have blogged from this book before, you can read it here.

I read this devotion last week which I really enjoyed. 
This is from September 10:

"One Lord, one faith, one baptism." Ephesians 4:5

"The apostle is stating in this and the succeeding verses a great truth concerning the church. There is a seven-fold unity. One body- composed of believers. One Spirit- the Holy Spirit who dwells within every believer and unites them together in the common bond. One hope- the blessed hope of his coming. One Lord- the Lord over all. One faith- and that founded on the one Lord. One God and Father of all- the object of our own faith and in whose name all believers are baptized. We are not our own. We were bought with a great price. We are His subjects, under His rule and authority. 

Lord Jesus, let us bow to Thee as the one Lord, and with loyal hearts yield to Thy authority. Amen. 

I liked the One-ness that we can share with other believers of faith, because we have ONE Lord over us all!

Romans 12:3-5
For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.  For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function,  so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.

1 Corinthians 12:12-14
Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many.
