Lot’s of people have heard about the “fall of mankind” but few people really know what happened beyond Eve eating the fruit. As the first woman, she has tended to get the blame but in this talk you’ll discover we ALL fell down when Adam and Eve did. The results were and continue to be devastating on all of life and especially on male/female relationships. But all is not lost for imbedded in the tragic story is the seed of eternal hope.
God’s love never gives up. The Bible is the story of His rescue mission to restore humanity from the devastation of the Fall. This rescue moves from the Old Testament to the New and finds its culmination in the Life, Love and Work of Jesus. Learn about Jesus’ special concern for women and what He did so every woman could experience the Full Restoration, He alone offers.
This message from Pastor Connie Bissen will encourage you to press on in all circumstances within your life. When we decide to follow God’s plan with integrity, humility and a willingness to not give up, God will move in a powerful way in order for his plans and purposes to be fulfilled in us.
A series on God’s design for every woman would be incomplete if we didn’t address the sexual abuse, misuse and harassment of women in our culture and cultures around the world. One way our culture is talking about this issue is the: NO MORE! campaign. Jesus said and lived a NO MORE lifestyle. He has called His followers to a FROM NOW ON culture of restoration, empowerment and equality.
