Lifegate Women are a reflection of God to the world.
2 Cor 3:18 says: “And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”
You are a reflection of God’s Love. This is not a love that can be earned, but you give it freely. It is not a love that has to be chased down because you pursues others. I can tell that when you know God’s love, serving flows from the fullness of joy and gratitude you have for life. Lifegate Women are a beautiful reflection of God’s Love!
You are a reflection of God’s Strength. You are not women who feel the need to constantly prove how strong you are. We work inside and outside of the home. We manage schedules, lead meetings, lead people. We cast vision, carry it out, all while teaching the next generation of leaders.
Philippians 4:13 says – I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. Strength in this passage refers to muscular strength, like a body builder. Another way of saying it is, I can do all things through Christ who gives me his muscles. My son is 3 and he always says, “Momma, you see my muscles?” As he scrunches up his face and flexes his arms. Of course, I carry on about how strong he is and how huge his muscles look. Now what if I said, “WOW! You are so strong, Cash! Would you please carry all 6 loads of laundry up the stairs for me?” I’ll tell you what would happen…he would try…and he knows that I would be there to carry most of the weight…just like God is there to give us his muscles. Lifegate Women are a beautiful reflection of God’s Strength!
You are a reflection of God’s Creativity. Each of you are individuals – a one of a kind creation. Your unique personality, gifts, passions and dreams matter to God and reflect his creativity. I want you to know how much I need you, Lifegate Women, and the world need you. You are being used by God right where you serve! Whether you feel at home in the kitchen, or welcoming women at the front door, speaking to large groups or encouraging and praying one on one. What you have to offer matters and you make a difference. Lifegate Women are a beautiful reflection of God’s Creativity!
Thank you all for an awesome year in which we all Live, Give, and Grow into what God is calling us to become. Enjoy life to the full this summer and continue to DWELL with Him!
