Women of Philippi- Your gifts are Vital to the Cause of Christ

Oftentimes women think that God doesn’t care about their success, or that they don’t have a place- and they feel quarantined into the children or women’s ministries. And this causes them to be concerned about their stewardship to Christ, when their talents aren’t’ being utilized.

But, in the midst of you really needing a miracle, have you ever thought that you already have the miracle you’re needing in your possession?

When we do our part, He will step in and do what we cannot.

Acting in Spirit

Seele contributor, Ben Mack reminds us on the importance of acting in Spirit and not ignoring God's calling. Looking at the example of Jonah, who ignored God's command to go to Nineveh and instead went to Tarshish because he thought that was the right thing to do- we see that obeying God is important for a smooth life. And getting swallowed by a whale was no fun for Jonah either.
