“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.” Colossians 3:23-4
What a powerful statement and reminder for all Christians at the conclusion of this verse—“it is the Lord Christ you are serving!” No matter what we do, when we do it, or for whom, it is truly Jesus that we serve, not men. And so, we are instructed and encouraged, “work at it with all your heart.”
When men and women choose to serve the ministry of A Woman’s Choice, I am confident that it is this truth that resonates in their hearts. They serve us because they are serving Him, and that is the “Power of One!” One person can truly make a difference when they are working with all their heart to serve the Lord, and they do! Lives are saved, hearts are changed and healed, women and men are discipled and mentored…all because of each “one” who chooses to serve in our ministry. Together we make a difference for the kingdom of God, but it always starts with one being willing to start.
In this newsletter, you will learn about several “ones” who have made a tremendous difference in our ministry and in the lives of our clients. You will read about a client’s friend who brought her to A Woman’s Choice at her darkest point of need and how her life was turned around. You will read about one volunteer, and many other “ones,” who have committed time, talent and treasure to the completion of our back building project. You will read about one of the walkers in our Walk for Life who learned about the amazing difference she could make and money she could raise for the ministry when she was simply willing to ask for support. We are so thankful for each one of these faithful partners with us in ministry, making a difference for the Kingdom.
We are thankful for YOU too! If you are reading this newsletter, it is likely that you are “one” who has prayed for us, volunteered with us, or donated to us, and it is only because of your support that we can do what we do. And together, we do it all for Him! God bless you!
