What does it mean to be Christ-like? I researched this question and let me tell you, the answers I got were completely circular. “Christ-like means to mimic Christ”, “Christ-like means exemplifying Christ.” “It means having a Christ-like attitude.” “It means sharing Christ with others.” And those are only a few of the answers. I had to roll my eyes at some of the answers, laugh at others and just sigh in the end because very few times did the answer truly give a solid answer to the question.
In this episode of The Woman Inspired Podcast we’re answering the question, “what does it mean to be Christ-like?” and all with Biblical examples, scripture, personal experiences and authentic examples. Yep, we’re breaking it down to real-life, true words and The Word.

Have you ever been duped? Tricked? Scammed? Led astray by someone you thought was good but turned out to be evil? The book of Matthew warns us about wolves in sheep clothing. That scripture is important for our journey with Jesus but also in our daily lives.
Like never before, we have a world that is crawling with hungry wolves. We also live in a world that believes the lie that “If it quacks like a duck, swims like a duck and walks like a duck, then it must be a duck.” With technology today, fake this, altered that and artificially generated everything, it’s easier than ever to disguise a raven as a duck.
 
So how do you garner wisdom and discernment to distinguish the fake from the phony, the wolf from the sheep and the ducks from the ravens…especially when you’ve been duped before and you’re feeling like a fool?  James 1:5 says, “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.”
We’re discussing ALL this and more in today’s episode of The Woman Inspired Podcast, “If it quacks like a duck.” Go to womaninspired.com https://womaninspired.org/podcasts  to tune in OR search for The Woman Inspired Podcast on your favorite Podcast platform.

In sharing the Word of God, do worry you might offend someone else? Or are you bold enough to just put THE truth out there with love and compassion and let it stand for itself? Do you hear people water it down or try to shove parts of it in other people’s faces, with good intentions but twisted meanings?
Matthew 24:10, 12 tells us that…”many shall be offended and shall betray one another and shall hate one another… And because evil shall abound the love of many shall wax cold.”
This IS the world we live in now. But that doesn’t mean we should walk around worried that we may offend others by the way we live out our faith journey and grow our relationship with Jesus…and walk in truth.
In today’s episode of The Woman Inspired Podcast we’re talking about the Word of God, how it’s shared in today’s culture – the good, the bad, the ugly, the evil and the truth of it. AND how to stand with Jesus in a world that will stand for anything and everything just for likes, follows, and attention.

Special Delivery (John 3:17)

Thursday Feb 08, 2024

Thursday Feb 08, 2024

Have you ever received a package marked “special delivery”? Was it flowers? Fruit? Jewelry? Or maybe a rooster? (Yes, you can mail a rooster!)
In this episode of The Woman Inspired Podcast we’re talking about gifts and a special delivery.
Aubrey Vaughn may have said it best: “Jesus is a special delivery from heaven, a parcel of love being delivered to your home with your name upon it for salvation and nothing in the world could stop the arrival of His of love - not the world - not Satan - not death - not hell because it was signed, sealed and delivered at Calvary But one thing we have to do with a special delivery when it arrives on our door step is to sign for it and agree to receive it.”

Church is hard (Acts 2)

Friday Feb 02, 2024

Friday Feb 02, 2024

I recently read a poem called, “Church is hard”. You may have seen it circulating online. The poem was written by Jacob Waldron. Excellent writing and SO on point. His writing sparked me to talk about why church is so hard and what the Bible says about church.
We have a road map to developing a healthy church in the book of Acts. In this episode we’re talking about how to make church NOT so hard and specifically about Acts 2:46-47, which says:  Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
To listen to today’s episode go to https://womaninspired.org/podcasts OR search for The Woman Inspired Podcast on all major podcast platforms – Audible, iHeart, Apple, Podbean, Podvine and Spotify.

“The devil knows your name but calls you by your sin. God knows your sin but calls you by your name…” (Ricardo Sanchez)  You have a name and YOU ARE NOT YOUR SIN. That’s what we’re discussing in this week’s episode of The Woman Inspired Podcast. We’re also talking about the danger of name-calling; labels, twisting the Word of God AND making sure you know that you are not your sin. (And other people are not their sin either.)
Paul said in Romans 7:20 - “Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it but sin that dwells in me.” Sin can dwell in you but that does not mean that you are your sin.

There's a saying that goes, "Words are seeds. They do more than blow around. They land in our hearts and not on the ground. Be careful what you plant. Be careful what you say. You might have to eat what you planted one day." (unknown)  Do you know this to be true?
In this episode of The Woman Inspired Podcast we talk about sowing seed - intentional sowing and unintentional sowing. What's the difference and why is it so important to be aware of it? Tune in to find out!
