“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.” Isaiah 60:1Our theme is “Arise,” based on Isaiah 60:1-3. Greater Louisiana Baptists will be challenged to move awakening to action; to live as lights that shine and penetrate a spiritually dark world with the truth of the Savior’s love and mercy.
Women of God are challenged to “arise, shine”, because the Light-Giver has come and given them His glory to shine. We must get out of our church building and begin penetrating the lostness that is in every city, town and rural community. It is our desire to see Christian women arise and be active for Christ wherever they are, not shying away from sharing Christ in a culture that often does not believe or follow the truths of Scripture.
“Arise is an action step after awakening. The next step is to be more hands-on and actually do something about where we are spiritually within our state. We need not just sit back and see what is going on, but make an effort to do something about it. We want to let people know that awakening is not enough for the task at hand. We need to arise and start moving, “he said.If we really arise and go out and shine the light, we will make a difference. We need to be strong, stand up and shine the light of Christ.”
Join us for a powerful weekend of praise, worship, learning and fellowship.
