Unity is oneness; harmony. In the book of Ephesians, chapter 4, the Word says, "I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called; with all lowliness and meekness, with long-suffering, forbearing one another in love; endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace."
When you endeavor to do, you exert yourself to do or affect something; make an effort; strive, to try or to attempt to do something.
Many Christians believe that unity starts in the church. Well, let me assure you that unity begins in the home. You must learn to extend love to your spouse, kids and family members. Then share that agape love to fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord. Perhaps there are some occurrences that have happened in the past, but you must learn to bypass those occurrences and extend love to your family. Realize this fact; before your spouse became your spouse, your spouse is a person. Treat your spouse as a person before seeing that person as your spouse.
Do everything you can to keep unity in your house. Suppose your child comes to you and ask you to fix them a sandwich? Seems real simple right? My next question is: What would your response be? "No! I don’t feel like it right now!" Or as a sign of submission to the needs of your child, you would say, "Sure I’ll fix it for you; what kind would you like?"
Do you want change? Do you desire unity in your home? Start doing self observation? Your anointing doesn’t supersede your responsibility.
God bless you!
We love you,
