This past Saturday at our home church was incredible!
God poured out His love onto us as only He can do. The Holy
Spirit was evident to show us the truth about Himself and our
brothers and sisters in other parts of the world who are fully
devoted to Him. Our day started off with a skit, representing
how a pastor was taken from his underground church and the women were
left behind, meeting secretly with whatever "pieces" of the Word they could
bring along with those who hid the Word in their heart.
Expressing the need to memorize and be in our Words daily so we have
it in our hearts, should the day come that we also are scattered. The Worship was beautiful and reverent to God. I Will Bless Your Name, Turn your eyes upon Jesus, so many more were offered in praise to His Name! Our titles covered; Radical Abandonment- Follow Jesus, Extreme Evidence, Radical Peace through the Power of the Holy Spirit, Extreme Devotion,
Faith Factor game and an interview from "God's View" with Sabina Wurmbrand. The day ended
with the alter call and asking women to take whatever it is that is holding them back from
fully following Jesus and nailing it to the cross. Moving forward, leaving that sin behind
that they may be extremely devoted to Jesus Christ!
A sobering day of bringing awareness of the persecuted church and that no matter
what is to come, God's church will survive, He will allow it to flourish and multiply
despite its enemies! What a privilege and blessing to witness God's hand in, through, on and around us. We praise God for the precious opportunity to serve Him out of obedience and to
see His love shared with women.
