A Woman in Ministry

Yesterday was International Women’s Day. It is an interesting thing that we need to celebrate a day like this. Unfortunately, history has marginalized and even dehumanized women. In this modern era, our culture is still trying to figure out how to celebrate women in an honorable way. I don’t think any culture or earthly kingdom will ever get it right. Thankfully, we can be part of a Heavenly Kingdom that gets the true value and beauty of women.

Rest for Your Soul

As I was reading my devotions a few years ago, I was challenged to examine my life to see what worldly pursuits I could exchange for “the will of God [that] remains forever” (1 John 2:17). Immediately, my mind assumed that I was looking for a money issue. However, I tend to not be overly indulgent in spending, and at that time, I was very content with my possessions, whether they were little or much. So, I was initially stuck, but it didn’t take long for Christ to reveal to me my fault.

God is With You

"Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means 'God is with us.'" – Matthew 1:23 (NLT)

Jesus is still with us today in the person of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the greatest gift God could give to his children because it is the power of God within us. It is a remarkable promise that God is always with us and we can connect with him anytime and anywhere.  

But, what happens when you find yourself asking, “What’s the point of God being with me anyway?”
