who reads the paper, listens to the news, watches television or goes to
the movies with regularity can't help but be aware of the rising tide

How is it that women would venture to preach when female ministry is forbidden in the Word of God?
This is a serious objection
to consider and, if capable of substantiation, would receive my
immediate and cheerful acquiescence; but I think I can show, by a fair
and consistent interpretation, that the very opposite view is the
truth—that the public ministry of women is absolutely enjoined by both
precept and example in the Word of God. read more
Have you ever felt that everyone other than you was doing something significant? That feeling can come even after reading something meant to be uplifting—such as an article in SpiritLed Woman! But who sets the standard for what is significant?
Often we assess significance using the world's standards—public visibility, wealth, power, influence. However, in God's kingdom values are reversed. Outward manifestations of importance are not the true measure of success. What is eternal—what we don't see—matters most.

more than half a million lives annually. read more
Help and strengthen
us to glorify You in all that we do, Father. This
request, or something like it, is lifted up to the Lord by countless
Christians every day. But how many of us take time to consider the
sweeping implications of the unassuming, three-letter word, all?
am a 24-year-old personal trainer who grew up hearing the Word,
praying with my parents and attending church since Day One. But
despite my Christian upbringing, it took me19 years to learn that
exalting Christ’s name and glorifying the Father isn’t simply
restricted to “holy” or “religious” activities such as
fasting or volunteering at a homeless shelter. Like Paul said to the
carnal Corinthians, we are called to glorify God whether we eat or
drink! (see 1 Cor.10:31).
Today, by God’s grace
and unending faithfulness, I am healthy, strong and free from
oppression and pride-saturated sin. A devastating breakup with my
