EMBRACE The FAITH
In a culture that is determined to defeat and silenceChristians, why do we as women of faith seem to breeze right past scriptures command to “always be prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you”? As we watch 88% of young people in the Southern Baptist Convention leave the church after high school and choose not to return to it, this should not only alarm us but should call us to action! As wives, mothers, aunts, teachers, women of faith and purpose, are we doing everything within our power to “Be prepared to make a defense” and are we intentionally preparing the next generation?
To challenge and equip women in every season of life to Embrace their God given kingdom potential and see them use that to glorify God by making disciples who overflow His presence everywhere we go!
Romans 12:1-2 “So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.”
