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

Marching Around Jericho is a spiritual guide. As you read through the pages, powerful and transformative instruction and equipping takes place. We follow Jesus as he leads us around the walls, imparting kingdom truths with each passing, finally arriving at the gates of the walled-off city, our spouse’s unbelieving heart. After the circles in prayer are complete, we arrive fully prepared to command the walls to crumble and be removed, making a way for our spouse to step from the rubble of lies and captivity, into faith and freedom!
