The Influence of Women in Ministry

We all have influence that God has entrusted to us to do our best with in this world


God has gifted you for a good reason. Sometimes we feel that the role of women in the church not only disqualifies us from some ministries, but restricts the amount of available ministry opportunities. Elisa Morgan shares some encouragement here that you need not discount your ability to influence.


Ephesians 2:10 (ESV)

10For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

Do you suffer from the scarcity mentality? How have you been affected by the feeling that there is no place for you in a ministry that you would like to serve?

When a door of opportunity presents itself, ask if God has placed your hand on that doorknob. Elisa has reminded us that when God wants us in a ministry, we don't need to fear our own qualifications or the doors closed by people. Follow the Spirit's leading and trust that God has gifted you for a very good reason.
