"Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?"
2 Cor. 6:14
"Wives, in the same way be submissive to your husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, when they see the purity and reverence of your lives." 1 Peter 3:1-2
In Zambia, you will find many Christians that will be married to a non-believer for different reasons. Perhaps he or she received Christ after being married. Perhaps the unbeliever only pretended to be a Christian before marriage. Perhaps the Christian willingly married an unbeliever. Either way, we see this alot here in Zambia. Also, there are many times that the husband will go to one church and the wife will go to another. As you can imagine this can cause a lot of conflict in the home and the family is not united. Many women have come to me in the past and asked me what they can do in this situation, so that is why I decided to teach on this subject this past Thursday at the women's meeting. A Christian wife should respect, obey, and love her unbelieving husband because this may bring him to Christ. If she will live her life in a good way and pray then perhaps one day her husband will trust in Jesus. I had a friend once that told me that her mother had been praying for her husband to come to Christ for 20 years and finally he did. God is faithful and answers prayers! What I learn from that is that we should not give up on anyone coming to Christ. We need to be diligent in our prayers for our lost loved ones.
Please pray for Zambian families to be united in the Truth of God's Word and desire to worship together as a family.
