  1. Thank you Stephanie for this timely reflection. I left the Baptist Faith tradition and became a pastor in the Presbyterian Faith when God called me to do so. I haven’t always felt affirmed by religious groups, yet I have felt affirmed by God and what He reveals in scripture. Your reflection is “spot on.”

  2. Stephanie,

    God told women to go & tell the other disciples because He knows we love to talk & tell others about what we’ve seen or heard. The woman at well also ran & told others- & many were saved. Who are we to put constraints on what God calls us to do? Paul states in 1 Corinthians 14:34 As in all the churches of the saints, the women should keep silent in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be in submission, as the Law also says. Do you see it? The law at that time didn’t permit women to speak, but we are no longer under the law! Paul states earlier in 1 Corinthians 11:5 every woman who prays & prophesies. I believe that if God calls women to pray, prophesy or preach then go do it. Who are we down here to contradict what God says? Why should we care what others think? It is utmost importance what Jesus thinks.

    Blessings 🙂

  3. Stephanie,
    I love the fact God doesn’t go by what’s expected. Jesus (our King) comes as a tiny helpless babe; Jesus reveals Himself for the first time, as the Messiah, to a woman; Jesus appears first (after His resurrection) to the women…there are so many wonderful examples of God calling on women to further His kingdom. Now, it’s up to us to not second guess our calling, but to walk out The Great Commission with boldness and strength. Great post!

    • Stephanie,
      I love hearing that this is the heartbeat Christ has given you, to go and tell others about Jesus. I want this to be the center of anything I do or say for Him. As women, I believe we are wired to carry deep conversations and communicate truths in unique ways. I’m thankful to be a daughter of God ❤

  4. This was a beautiful reminder Stephanie, thank-you for sharing with us.
    Blessings to all,

  5. We are called. But so many of us are scared. To tell we are saved. Tell what Jesus the king of the world done for us. We have so many opertunetys to tell about our faith. But we miss out. Our we are afraid. People will think we are preaching to them. I lost out in so many way. Like a few years ago. I messed up my Aunt who is not saved my Dad’s sister asked me something along those lines. You still go Church Dawn and believe in God. I just said yes or something like that. Said nothing else to my Aunt. Then she said. Oh she how good you are you believe God and go to Church. You are so good. I had my opertunety to say more to my Aunt that day. But I didn’t. As I didn’t want my Aunt to think I was preaching to her. As she that type that could say now now that is enough. I only asked if you Still go Church and believe still believe in God. As she wouldn’t want me to say I go because I love God and love to hear his word and so glad to be saved and am glad he is my saviour and that he sent Jesus to die for my sins. I am so glad to live for him every day. Say my Prayers and read his word the Bible. You have to be very careful with what you say to her. Like my Dad. As they think you are preaching the gospel to them. They say enough. I only asked a simple question. But I should have said was of course I do. I go because I love Jesus and go to Church to hear more of about the word Jesus and learn more about Jesus. Left it at that. That might have hopefully given her food for thought. As I know yes we are called to about Jesus to people. But when it comes to the unsaved. We have to careful. What we say. Like my Dad and his sister my Aunt. Watch what you say in front of people like that. Don’t be to preachy. As you can put them of wanting to hear the gospel. They would tell you keep your religion or belief’s to yourself. Then you could get into a row with them. So in times like this I just answer there questions if asked. Instead I just live my life for Jesus in front of them. With the things I do and says. Plus I pray for them. I tell them when leaving. If my Dad’s sister my Aunt. As she doesn’t live her. I say love you see you soon give her hug tell her keeping her in Prayer. I write in her cards I send her like Christmas Card etc. I tell the same in my Dad’s. I always tell my Dad when leaving after visiting him that I love him. Live my life for Jesus in front of him. Pray for him. Love today’s reading Stephanie. Love you all incourage be praying for you all. Xxx
