Who gets to decide what defines victory? When we don’t live up to the world’s expectations, are we failures or are we just finding a different path to glory? The women of Jesus era are often in the background of the gospel story, but without their faith and support Christianity would not exist as we know it. [hear sermon audio]
Devotion time is crucial to your growth in faith. Here are some resources for yours this week:
Track the journey of the female disciples through the Gospel of Luke. Specifically look at Luke 8, Luke 23: 26-56, Luke 24: 1-12
- What about your faith calls you to defy cultural expectations? How often are you tempted to conform rather than transform?
- Try to Define Yourself: Make a list of who you think you are. What are your strengths and weaknesses, your passions and dislikes, your talents and struggles? Ask a love one to look it over and give you some feedback on how well you see yourself.
- Share a lesson you learned from failure to our Facebook group or on Twitter and Instagram (tag us @dpumc).
