This week we celebrated International Women’s Day. It’s a day where women celebrate their achievements across the socio-economic and political fronts.
There is no doubt in my mind that Jesus celebrated women too. Equality was never an issue with Jesus. In Luke 8:2-3 Jesus had a following of women. These women who, through their different life circumstances, found themselves connected to Jesus. As a result, they went beyond and contributed financially to His ministry. They used funds out of their own private means.
Why did they do this? Each woman had a personal encounter with the living Christ and was never the same again! Each of these women experienced healing, forgiveness, love and acceptance. They had made poor choices. They had messed up. But Jesus was there to redeem and restore their lives. I hope this week you experience an encounter with Jesus that will totally transform the way you do life too!
