Injustice, poverty, abuse, oppression pervades in our world. God’s desire it to set the world right.
Catch the vision in Ephesians. God wants to make things right.
Ephesians 6:14b…..with the breastplate of righteousness in place……
Sometimes “church” words are funny to me. What is righteousness? 1. Morally upright; without guilt or sin: 2. In accordance with virtue or morality:
Simply it means to live right. The breastplate of righteousness allows us to move in this world, to set things right, yet be protected. We are protected from the flaming arrows of the enemy. Without the breastplate we are exposed.
It is a moral decision. A desire to do what is right. So here is where the rubber meets the road as I like to say. Make it real. Our unbelieving spouse chooses to watch something on television that you know would offend Jesus if He was in the room with you. Honey says, “please come sit with me and let me hold you.”
How do we handle this?
I am looking forward to your responses and I will post again tomorrow on this subject.
Be blessed, Lynn

Lynn has wonderfully mapped out the steps we all need to walk through to develop and grow this vital relationship with Him. This was the Lord’s intent for her transformation journey all along, and His intent for you too. Here she has spelled out the spiritual truths behind the principles and talked us through how she applied them. These truths are universally applicable to us all, though as the details of our lives, situations and hearts will be different, we will apply them differently. - Reader Review from Barnes & Noble.
