The Helmet of Salvation
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 NASB
“Unity occurs when we combine our unique differences together as we head toward a common goal. It is the sense that the thing that we are gathered for and moving toward is bigger than our own individual preferences.” Tony Evans
Lord, through Christ’s death and resurrection, You provided me with salvation for eternity. Jesus laid down His life so that my eternal salvation would be secured. You bought me with a price through the sacrifice of Your Son. Because of this truth, I exist to glorify You with my life. So does my spouse. We are not our own. Our purpose is to bring You glory through our choices, words and the state of our hearts.
Help us to relinquish our will and rights to having our own way in order to honor You in unity together. Give us the bigger picture of Your kingdom and remind us of our greatest purpose which is to glorify You. Disunity is rebellion because disunity sets my desires and will above Yours. Disunity says I lay claim to my life, my body and my choices with no regard to Christ’s sacrifice and Your gift of salvation through the forgiveness of sins.
Unity reflects hearts of surrender under You, Lord, which is what Your Word says we are to do based on Christ’s redemption of us. Give us this reminder when things are disunified in our marriage, and enable us to overcome the challenges we face in order that we might unify our hearts in alignment under You. In Christ’s name, amen.
