7 Women & Their Secrets of Greatness
May 10 – June 21, 2020
When I was young, my family would begin all of our pre-meal prayers with the phrase, “God is great, God is good…”
Many years later, I had occasion to reflect on the meaning of those words. Where early in life I had presumed that they were simply a commentary on how wonderful God is, my later years found me beginning to realize that while one of those words reflected God’s moral quality (good), the other reflected God’s vastness (great). God’s spirit is vast beyond all comprehension offering a similarly vast and incomprehensible love that cannot be earned or deserved. That love, when manifested in the heart of a willing person, has the potential and power to not only redeem that person, but transform the world. God is great.
I am so excited to share this series with you. When I first encountered the associated book by Eric Metaxas many years ago, I was immediately overwhelmed by the spiritual greatness of each of these seven women. Living lives that are incomprehensible to most of us, they manifested a heavenly love that God would use to redeem and transform the world. I invite you to spend the next few weeks exploring spiritual greatness with me by learning about the lives of seven women who exemplified it.
