A Letter to My Sisters

by Johnson Bowie
The curse that came after Adam and Eve’s encounter with the serpent in the Garden of Eden is still active in the world around us. We have an enemy who knows that if women step into their power and authority, he’s in trouble! So, he does everything he can to keep women down. But God loves women, and His love honors and protects. That’s good news! Tune in as we celebrate the value and greatness of ALL women, the divine daughters of the King of kings and Lord of lords!
Sermon Notes

Matthew 5:31-32 NIV
“It has been said, ‘Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce.’ But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, makes her the victim of adultery, and anyone who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.”

Malachi 2:16 NLT
“I hate divorce!” says the Lord, the God of Israel. “To divorce your wife is to overwhelm her with cruelty,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. “So guard your heart; do not be unfaithful to your wife.”

Genesis 3:14-15 NIV
So the Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, cursed are you above all livestock and all wild animals! You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life. And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”

Genesis 3:16 NLT
Then he said to the woman, “I will sharpen the pain of your pregnancy, and in pain you will give birth. And you will desire to control your husband, but he will rule over you.

Good News for Women

  1. The curse is broken off your life!

No longer do we view women through the lens of the CURSE, but now we view women through the lens of the CROSS.

Wherever the Gospel is most EMBRACED, women are most EMPOWERED.

Good News for Women

  • Your value is based on your image!

Genesis 1:27 NIV
So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

Proverbs 31:30 NIV
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

Good News for Women

  • God created you for GREATNESS!

2 Timothy 1:5 NIV
I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.

Wherever you are
