Let me invite you to prayerfully watch/listen to an extraordinary sermon given by 3 women this past Sunday at New Life.
This was one of those very rare moments when I have realized the inexpressible holy was among us. We were being offered a glimpse of the risen Jesus in brokenness, vulnerability, and suffering. God’s glory was passing by. And He removed His hand, allowing us to see His back (Ex. 33:20-23).
Geri delicately and skillfully draws out the stories of these 3 amazing women and their journey with Jesus:
- Kim – rejected by her parents as “ugly” at birth due to a cleft palate.
- Fathima – a victim of domestic abuse.
- Marie – a Mom of two “differently-abled” (or “disabled”) children with myotubular myopathy.
Every person in our church has a story, a beautiful story where the Living Jesus wants to intervene and reveal Himself – if they allow Him. My prayer is that we as leaders and preachers might also serve as midwives to these people we serve, making known His power that is so wonderfully revealed in weakness (2 Cor. 12:7-10).
