REFLECTING GOD’S GLORY:
This is our theme for this gathering, and I’m glad you’ve heard a lot from our speakers.
God’s Glory is the beauty of His spirit. It is not an aesthetic beauty or physical beauty or a material beauty, but it is the beauty that emanates from God’s character, from all that He is.
Through man, God’s glory can be seen in things such as love, kindness, forgiveness etc
Now, how do you reflect God’s Glory as Women of this generation?
Reflecting God’s Glory means we honor God in our thoughts and actions, focusing on God’s Words, knowing what is right and following through with doing what is right at all times.
To reflect God’s Glory in everything we do:
• We must exercise faith (Hebrews 11:6)
• We must love without hypocrisy (Romans 12:9)
• We must deny ourselves (Luke 9:23),
• We must be filled with the Spirit (Ephesians 5:18)
• And we must offer ourselves as “living sacrifices” to God (Romans 12:1).
Having said that, this address of mine will only be complete if I remind you like I’ve always said at gatherings as this:
As mothers in this generation, let’s always strive to be Enterprising; learn to make money from little funds you lay your hands on.
No matter the level of what you do; large or small scale business, service, trade etc. Endeavor to always put God first.
Inviting Jesus into your affairs from the beginning will help you scale through hard times. There will definitely be storm, but imagine if Jesus was not with the Disciples during the storm on the sea – Matthew 8:23-27. Remember the experience at the Wedding at Cana – John 2:1-11
Regardless of how we look at it, Women rule the world…
The New Seraph will not relent looking for ways to assist women generally, not forgetting the widows, but in order to do it in a more organized way, we have deployed a means soon which will make us all have true membership identity members of The New Seraph.
The goodness accrued to being part of this process abound and I will implore us to embrace it when launched out.
I want to encourage you all to continue being true virtuous women in all ramifications. Always represent Christ well by living a Christ Like Life and the more we do this, the more you become blessed in Jesus name. Amen
Thank you and God Bless you more
