“Powerful” Speakers | She Shares Truth: 1 Corinthians 2:1-5

For my devotional/reflections/response to Joshua 1:8-9 last week, click here.

Whenever we listen to teachings and sermons may it be online or at church,
we can say that a message is really influential when it is delivered by a “powerful” speaker.
We tend to lend our ears more specially if we recognize them and know that they have such and such degree
from such and such school and have written such and such books.
I am not saying like it’s a bad thing because I love listening to these powerful speakers myself.
I learned lots of things from the message they give and also from the way they deliver such messages.
We set goals for ourselves that one day we can become powerful speakers like them too.
Again, it is not a bad thing.
But if we wait to share the gospel only when we become like them, that’s where we got it wrong.

Truth is we can share the gospel no matter what our backgrounds and achievements are.
That’s what we do in the She Reads Truth community.
We don’t have to be very good in public speaking or feature writing to share God’s word.
We don’t need any theology degree so we can share the truth about God’s love and grace.
We only need the willingness to open our hearts and share with each other our successes and failures.
We reveal the beautiful and the icky stuffs in our lives and learn from it as a community.
We become vulnerable so we can strengthen each other.
We encourage one another and build each other up.
We allow God to work on our hearts and we as a community becomes a powerful speaker.
Yes we don’t have everything figured out but we don’t let that stop us.
Thank God that His mercy and grace is more than enough for us.
Always was and always will be.

So what are you waiting for?
If you are a woman, come join me and thousands of ladies all over the world at She Reads Truth.
If you are a guy though, I'm pretty sure you can still visit.
Perhaps you will be inspired to start a men's community.
He Reads Truth. 
Why not right?

Father, thank you so much that I am part of this community of ladies who yearns for you every day.Thank you for making yourself known to us. May you continue to give us the wisdom to know the right things to do and willingness to do these things. May your name be glorified in our lives and may the world see this and put their trust in You and You alone. Amen!
