I am honored to be to part of the amazing sisterhood that God has created for us at Grace Bible Church. Your faithful service to the body of Christ is a vivid reminder of those enviable New Testament women who actually sat at Jesus' feet, and cared for Hm and His followers with complete devotion.
Those dear sisters of ours who washed Jesus’ feet, prepared nourishment for Him, and provided lodging, friendship and encouragement to Him, were vital to His ministry. The New Testament is replete with accounts of their beautiful servant-love for Christ.
Their service didn’t stop with Jesus. It overflowed to His disciples and then to one another as they sacrificially and joyfully gave of themselves. They toiled so they could give. They provided practical blessings like clothing and food and places to sleep. They devoted themselves to prayer and discipleship. God used these precious women and their servant-love as He built His church.
And here we are, 2,000 years later, serving Him just the same! Our love for Him also overflows to love for His people. Needs are being met for the glory of God all around us. Single moms are cared for, the elderly are helped, the needy are fed, the weary are encouraged. And we have the reward of knowing our service to each other is as if we were serving Jesus Himself!
"The King will answer and say to them, 'Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.'” — Matthew 25:40
So, dear sisters, as we continue to link our hearts and hands together in ministry may it always be from the overflow of our love and devotion to our precious Savior.
“Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips, nor enslaved to much wine, teaching what is good, that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be dishonored.”
You are in my heart,
