THE UNITY OF THE SPIRIT
This is a letter I received from a sister in Christ, a married woman and a mother of three. She comes from a difficult background before she got married. She was proud, rebellious and very stubborn. Her marriage suffered greatly because of her attitude. Both she and her husband came for counsels and prayers. Thanks be to God! Their marriage is now an example to many. She has repented and changed very much for the past few years. She is now a committed Christian and humbly and faithfully serves God in the church. In the women’ fellowship we have been discussing the need and the importance of the unity of the Spirit in the marriage. She is a testimony that the Word of God is working when you chose to believe. All glory to God!
“Good morning Ma.
I can’t thank God enough for what He has been doing for me and my family. I have been praying for unity of the Spirit for my husband and me. Not just for a few things but for all things. A few days ago, my husband got an amount of money though not much but there was a way I wanted the money spent which I strongly believe will bring glory to God. Usually I will tell him what God puts in my heart, but this time I didn’t. When my husband told me the things he wanted to do with the money it was exactly how the Lord had told me. I was shocked. I give God all the glory because these things are very big to me considering my history which is now a testimony. My mouth will continue to sing His praise forever! Thank You Jesus!
“As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the Unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace” (Eph 4:1-3)
