Each Spring I teach a Bible study in a village somewhat of a distance from our city. I lose contact with these women until the next year when we again spend several months together studying the Word of God. On our last time together a year ago, a woman shared a most desperate problem. Abandoned by her family because she had chosen to follow Christ, she had just found out that her Christian husband had been keeping a second wife and had been using her earnings from a labor intensive job to provide this other woman with many luxuries that she didn't have. We quickly prayed together as I said, "The Spirit of Christ will show you what to do."

And now the year has gone by and I saw her once again, radiantly leading the singing. When I took her aside and asked her how things were, she said, "The Spirit of God told me to forgive and then He gave me the power to do it." Seeing the life-changing power of the Spirit of Christ in believers is reason for praise! Attached File  praying.jpg   221.49KB   0 downloads
