When I pick up a tea bag, or box of new tea, I read such captions as, “A Robust Blend with a Captivating Aroma!”
That has me thinking. Isn’t that what our Women’s Ministry should be?
I looked up some definitions and came up with these from my trusty Webster’s:
Robust—having strength or vigorous health: firm in purpose or outlook: strongly formed.
Blend—to prepare by thoroughly intermingling different varieties or grades: to combine into an integrated whole.
Captivating—influencing by some special charm, or trait with an irresistible appeal.
Aroma—a distinctive pervasive and usually pleasant smell.
We at Redeemer Presbyterian Church pray that the women we touch will grow in health, strength, and purpose—intermingling our gifts and personalities to benefit all of us together. We also pray that our witness for Christ will captivate with an irresistible appeal those who need to hear the gospel. As Paul said in 2 Corinthians 2:14 (ESV):
But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him [Christ] everywhere.
Consider this week how you, along with your women friends whom God has blended together, can represent Christ providing “A Robust Blend with a Captivating Aroma!”
