Grace Girls in the City . . . Living a Life that Shines
In Matthew 5:14-16, Jesus tells us that we are the light of the world. He compares us to a city on a hill that cannot be hidden and a lamp that should not be placed under a basket, but on a lampstand. In both of these comparisons, we are reminded that we have a divine purpose that when lived out brings glory to God through our good works.
Living a life that brings God glory is not something that can be done and go unnoticed. When we live a life that SHINES we illuminate the beauty and wondrous love of Christ. The "light" within us beckons to those lost in the darkness, offering the brilliant and redemptive love of Jesus.
This year at He Loves Me my prayer is that God's word will find you wherever you are and inspire you to dig deeper while offering you tools to avow the eternal love of God and go public with your faith wherever you find yourself. We want the world to know that we are Grace Girls in the City . . .Living a Life that Shines!
First Lady Trina Jenkins
This year at He Loves Me, we want you to walk about equipped with the tools to be confident in your faith and your knowledge in sharing Christ. We are excited about our workshops and believe that after the end of He Loves Me your light will shine brighter and the name of Jesus will be glorified.
