Colossians 3:23 “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men,”  

whenever i need a little boost in my devotional time, i pull out my favorite devotional book:  “Women of the Bible”    

today i studied Priscilla.  as in Priscilla & her husband Aquila.  (you can check out more by reading Acts 18-19, Romans 16:3-4, 1 Corinthians 16:19, 2 Timothy 4:19)    

Priscilla was one of the first missionaries and a leader of the early church.  she was a woman whose spiritual maturity and understanding of the faith helped build up the early church.   

some key points that God taught me today, during my devotion time:

  • “All work is valuable and worthwhile in God’s sight, and all work is worth doing ‘with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men….It is the Lord Christ you are serving’ ”  Colossians 3:23-24
  • “Whatever my role as a woman in my church, whether in the background or in a leadership position, i can be sure that what i am doing matters.  Each task–no matter how small or large–is important to the spread of the gospel.  I am an integral part of my church community, and God promises to use me.”
  • “The truth is, most of us have affected others in far more positive ways than we might guess, especially if we belong to Christ.”

“as believers, we should picture our lives as stones thrown into a pond.  our lives are meant to have a RIPPLING EFFECT so others can feel the influence of our gifts and faith.      

picture yourself as a stone in God’s hand.    

He throws you into the water.   

What kind of ripples do you see?  Are they large or small?     

Thank God for all the ripples your life has already created, even if the circle of your influence still seems rather small.  Unlike the ripples created by an ordinary stone, the ripple effect of faith need never stop as long as we live.  Pray that God will make waves with your faith, even rocking a few boats along the way.”
