TEXT: ‘That the sharing of your faith may become effective by the acknowledgment of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus’ – Philemon 1:6.

Nations can be changed by a move of the Spirit in response to the prayers and witness of God’s people.  Our text reveals three things to keep in mind that will help us to effectively witness.

Read 2 Kings 4:8-37 and 8:1-6 to discover the whole story. Her Generosity Not only did she manage to persuade Elisha to stop for a meal whenever he was passing but she got her husband to agree to spend some money. Wives have a knack of doing that! ‘Let’s make a little room for him on the roof; we can put in a bed, a table, a chair, and a lamp, and he will have a place to stay whenever he comes by’ – v10 TLB. She gave wanting nothing in return, ‘Generous people plan to do what is generous, and they stand firm in their generosity’ – Isaiah 32:8 NLT. God’s Promise Two promises stand out in the...
