Purpose-Filled Women of the Bible
God breathed purpose into the lives of women we read about in the Bible. I have often wondered if they could possibly have known the importance of their incredible life assignments. I’m now convinced that they were just showing up for work and being obedient to wherever God placed them on any given day. Some of them had assignments in their home, workplace, congregation, or community. As you read more about in the Word of God and study their lives, consider what their faithful surrender to God’s will for their lives accomplished.
