Organizing the Inside 365 Days

Empowering Christian Women To Get Organized and Discover God's Plan for Their Lives

Organizing the Inside – Day 159 Christian Community

32All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they shared everything they had. 33With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and much grace was upon them all. 34There were no needy persons among them. 
~ Acts 4:32-34a

In this day and time we have become so self-sufficient.
Everyone is out the get their fair share.  You have to make it on your own, right?  It’s sad for me to think that even in our Christian community (the church) everyone seems to somehow have their own agenda.  I ask myself, “How will they know that we are Christians, if what’s yours is yours and mine is mine, and it’s every woman for herself?”  The answer is simple; they will know that we are Christians by our love.

As sisters in Christ we must get back to loving and supporting each other.
Be vulnerable and trust God in me and I’ll trust God in you.  Let someone learn from your mistakes…share your story. Open your heart and let your life be read.  God wants to use you, the authentic you, not the “fake-me-out…I’m so blessed and highly favored you.”  The real you who has been down in the dirt and has risen from the storm. You haven’t gone through, only for you.

Don’t consider yourself, worrying about what they will think.
Be transparent because on the inside of you are gifts that your sisters need.  Remember on the inside of you is what the world needs – God. For God is LOVE.  Also read 1 John 4:7,8

Thank you Liz!
I woke up this morning with the idea of writing a post about transparency so this is really apt and very wise.
