Today in The Women series we meet six women who served. It is a great privilege to introduce a dear friend who has blessed us with a message for all women. Our prayer is that many will be touched by the truth in the words here. Please continue with us in this series by checking the blog or you may follow by email and receive updates to your inbox!
The Women: ...Who Served
Living the Song
Guest post by, Joanna Martinez
Follow the name of each woman listed. Read her story in the following scriptures:
Anna – Luke 2:36-38; Dorcas – Acts 9:36-42; Lois and Eunice – Acts 16:1-2; 2 Timothy 1:5, 3:14-15; Lydia – Acts16:9-15, 40; Priscilla – Acts18:1-3, 18, 24-28; Romans 16:3-5
I think if we are honest with ourselves, we would admit that we can come up with the wrong ideas of what something means, or looks like. For example what does the word serve mean to you?“But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him.” --John 4:23
I was convinced I had a pretty good idea what service entailed. I knew what it looked like, what it involved, and I thought that only certain people were “called” to be “in ministry”. Through looking at the lives of these six women, Anna, Dorcas, Eunice, Lois, Lydia, and Priscilla, I hope we will have our hearts enlightened a little more to what it means to serve.
