Ephesians 4:1-6

Marcus Grodi and Jim Anderson | November 14, 2007 No Comments

Marcus Grodi and Jim Anderson continue their discussion of Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians.

St. Paul made many deep statements that have layers of meanings, but one particularly deep even brash claim is found in 1 Corinthians 12:3: “ … no one can say ʻJesus is Lordʼ except by the Holy Spirit.” Now at one level, any one can merely recite those words, “Jesus is Lord,” without any movement of the Spirit or any personal conviction at all. But as one contemplates what St. Paul truly meant, the layers of meaning become almost unfathomable. And to bring the significance of this difficulty home, Father Cantalamessa wrote, “In todayʼs situation, rarely, or never, do baptized people reach the point of proclaiming “in the Holy Spirit” that “Jesus is Lord!” And because they have not reached that point, everything in their Christian lives remains unfocused and immature.” This is what we will discuss today on Deep In Scripture.
