Be the Light of the World
“You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless.
“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.
Be a Joy and Have a Joy Filled Life
You haven’t done this before. Ask, using my name, and you will receive, and you will have abundant joy.
Joyful are those who listen to me, watching for me daily at my gates, waiting for me outside my home! For whoever finds me finds life and receives favor from the Lord.
Disciples sent out on a Mission
What would happen to us if we actually went out to make disciples?
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded of you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.
2 Corinthians 2:14
But thank God! He has made us his captives and continues to lead us along in Christ’s triumphal procession. Now he uses us to spread the knowledge of Christ everywhere, like a sweet perfume.
He led me to a place of safety; he rescued me because he delights in me.
Celebrating all the riches the Lord has given us.
“However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me – the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace”
A fundamental key to having and doing all God has for us is to continually pursue our destiny throughout our lives.
So always be looking to glorify God in everything you say and do. There is no moment that does not matter, and there is no testimony that isn’t cause for worship!
Discovering and being confident who God created each one of us to be.
What if we thought about a paradigm shift in women's ministry that moved our thinking from what our women need, to what God is calling them to do? What could our women's ministries look like if our focus wasn't on developing the women inside the church but releasing them to come alongside the ones outside, helping another woman take her next step toward Christ, even if it's a step no further than she is herself?
And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me
1 Corinthians 12:12-13
One Body with Many Parts
The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up one whole body. So it is with the body of Christ. Some of us are Jews, some are Gentiles, some are slaves, and some are free. But we have all been baptized into one body by one Spirit, and we all share the same Spirit.
