I wanted to start sending you weekly emails to encourage, empower and equip you, the women who make The Well happen. As you know, we constantly have women coming to The Well who are not yet Christian, women who are hurting, lonely, lost, or simply looking for ways to get plugged in to Substance and to reach the Twin Cities for Christ. I want to make sure that no matter what stage in their journey the women are on, that each of you feels equipped to make each of them feel perfectly at home in our community. 🙂
Yesterday, during my morning devotions, I read this in Ephesians 3, “Through Christians like yourselves gathered in churches, this extraordinary plan of God is becoming known [that no matter where we come from, we all have access to the same promises in Christ Jesus] and talked about even among the angels!” When I read that I thought of each of you. When we gather and share Christ’s love with each woman who walks through the doors of the OC, or joins us in our connect group, or serves with us on a ministry team, we are making God’s plan known on earth and in heaven! What a beautiful picture of what we get to do with and for God week in and week out.
The Church is God’s gift to the world, for it is the incarnational presence of Jesus on earth today. Together, as each of us shines out the God colors within us, we get to represent God to this generation and to help women find the hope, healing and eternal home they are searching for.
This week, I pray that God will strengthen you, encourage you and fill you with the peace that surpasses all understanding. Thank you, beautiful, for all you do!
