Fight for Unity

“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." Ephesians 4:2-3 (NIV)


Confused, anxious, and distressed are some of the words that were used by many people in several states this past Tuesday. Yes, it was Super Tuesday and for many Americans, voting is a daunting task. As we prepared to participate in the early voting process a few weeks ago, Kathy expressed some of these same emotions. Unfortunately, so did one of the candidates she was leaning towards during the debates.


Although Kathy and I might have disagreed on who we would cast our vote for, I am so grateful we did not allow our differences to divide us. Politics, like many other things, can potentially divide couples and cause serious long-term damage to a marriage. Yet, the Bible states clearly that we must take care as couples to maintain our unity and not allow our differences to divide us. Ephesians 4:2-3 states, “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 (NIV).


Our pastor, Tony Evans, exhorts us often to “fight for our unity” as a church body and community of believers. He says it (unity) is important enough to fight for. As couples, we must be willing to fight to maintain our unity as well. It takes humility, gentleness, patience and effort as Scripture says, but we must make the effort so that we do not allow politics, family members, careers or any such thing to divide us.


What tends to divide you and your spouse? What can you do this week enhance your relationship. Choose to fight for unity! Choose to fight for peace!
