Two weeks ago, I was asked to do a tribute for Women’s day. I wasn’t exactly sure what everyone wanted to hear. I thought long and hard about it. Finally, I got my AHA moment around 2 AM in the morning. This is what I came up with:
New Light Baptist Church annual women’s day isn’t just a random day in April where we all wear white. It’s a day of celebrating and giving praises to God. Before we can gather together into this place, this church needed to be build. First, you need to lay down the foundation. Our foundation is Jesus Christ because he tasted death on our behalf and made provision for us through forgiveness, healing, deliverance and sanctification, so we can live.
Now, once you have the foundation laid, you can start building the church brick by brick…just like the mothers of our church, who display high standards for the rest of us with prayer, worship and guidance.
Then, you need to put up your walls to keep the cold out….just like our deaconess, who warm our souls and give us encourage and inspiration by serving from their hearts.
After that, you’ll need to put up some doors. So, the ushers can open the door for us to walk into the house of God. And, the missionaries can take the word of God and go through the doors to spread the word of the Gospel.
Of course, you’ll need to put up the windows showcasing the different colors and designs….just like all the sisters in the church with different skills, talents and desires that can be brought together to glorify God.
Lastly, the lights need to be installed and shine bright….just like the young people in our church who represent the bright future.
When you think about Women’s Day, remember this is the day the Lord has made and we should rejoice and be glad in it. Let’s be grateful because we serve an on time God and we need to surrender to his ways and say yes Lord because his promises are Yes, Yes and Amen.Many Blessings from Christian's Inspiration
