ML August Recap: Knowing You, JesusNov 18th, 2010 | By ainsley | Category: Featured Articles
On August 21st, 40 or so Morninglight women met in Portland for a morning of worship, praise and sharing.
Our time of worship, including a Kinyarwanda song about how the promises of God will never fail (“Amasezerano yawe mana ndahinduka!”), centered on the supremacy of knowing God over everything else. These cries culminated in the chorus of “Knowing You”:
Knowing you, Jesus, knowing you
There is no greater thing
You’re my all, you’re the best
You’re my joy, my righteousness
And I love you, Lord
Two strong women of God shared words of exhortation and encouragement: Julie Stevens and Laurence Mukabatsinda. Laurence exhorted us from her life story about the difference between practicing Christian religion and truly loving and following Jesus. Julie encouraged us to renew our minds, get rid of every trace of bitterness and malice, and embrace the relationships God has given us to refine and make us holier and stronger people.
