Puzzles pieces have many loops and sockets; each piece has value in completing the whole. Empowering women contributes to a woman finding confidence and taking her place in the community. She must understand that her gift is an asset in the community. God gives us what other sisters are lacking, so we fit together. It is vital to healthy self-esteem that everyone brings something important to the group and are not just a recipient. An awareness of God’s abilities will inspire her to take on the community’s challenges and be a contributor. She is encouraging women to use their God-given gifts so the community is not lacking.
God formed you for His family. God created the perfect environment for us. One degree off our axis one way or another, and we are useless.
Ephesians 1:5 NLT “God decided in advance to adopt us into His own family by bringing us to Himself through Jesus Christ. This is what He wanted to do, and it gave Him great pleasure.”
God’s community is where you belong. God did not create you to go through life alone. You have to choose to be a part of God’s family; it is not automatic. Not everyone is a child of God. God loves everyone, created everyone, but HE is not going to force anyone to be part of His family. God does not force adoption on you.
Loving, caring, and helping each other is proper behavior for the Christian community.
1 Timothy 3:15 NIV … “if I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God’s household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth.”
The church is a community that belongs to God! It is not a business, organization, or country club. It is supposed to be a family. Here at Boundless Sisterhood, we are part of the church as a whole. We are a community of supportive, caring women, determined to help you fulfill the passion and purpose that God has put inside of you. If you are a Christian, we are sisters.
God does not want you just to know and love him, but He wants you to belong to His family. The church is the believer’s support system. A building without the proper support collapses. There are people without the appropriate skill sets all around us: without the church, without God’s family, without God’s support system. You cannot fulfill the purpose God made you for by yourself. Support is essential. Just as you need others, others need you!
Having your feelings hurt doesn’t permit you to give up. Offenses in the church body can be painful. Part of our Boundless Sisterhood mission is to create a community where women can find love and support.
1 Peter 2:17 The Message “Treat everyone you meet with dignity. Love your spiritual family. Revere God. Respect the government.”
Learn how to be committed to serving each other; it is practice for eternity. Heaven will be a church family reunion. The church is so essential because it is where we live with and learn to love one another. In the community where you work, live, and play with, that is a workshop for learning to love. People will disappoint you. God wants us to love the real people in our everyday lives, not ideal people. Learn to love others!
We fit together to make up Christ’s body, a picture that we all have a part to play.
Romans 12:5 NLT “so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other.”
Community is essential – I could not do all of the work for Boundless Sisterhood by myself. God brought the right women into my life at the right time to launch this vision. We have different abilities and callings, but God, like a puzzle, fits us together for His use. Each of us has our skill set that we bring to this community.
We are a committed Sisterhood with Boundless opportunities and ways to serve the Lord. Have you found out what your piece is and where it fits?
