“And also some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases; Mary, called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had been expelled; and Joanna, wife of Chuza, Herod’s household manager; and Susanna; and many others who ministered to and provided for Him and them out of their property and personal belongings.” Luke 8:2-3 Amplified
Today we look at several women of the Bible, those listed in our verse above. We see that these people were helped by our Lord, cured of diseases, or rid of evil spirits. In response to that they seek to take care of Him. We see also that these people came from various backgrounds, yet they all saw Him as Savior.
We often think these people gave up their lives to serve and follow Jesus and maybe some of them did. I think though, that some gave of what they had to help Him and had a change of heart to serve. Sometimes people are hesitant to give their hearts and lives completely over to God because they have a fear that the Lord will send them to some foreign country. God wants to use us where we are needed and that might be right in your own backyard. He wants us to offer ourselves to Him trusting Him to do what is best. When we do that He will use us in the best way possible for all. Seek Him by ministering to Him through others and He will lead you. Trust Him to take care of you.
