The Power of Women: 7 Dynamic Traits of Women in the Bible

On Westa.org, we’re celebrating the power and strength of women. Read our list of 7 dynamic traits of women in the Bible which are sure to keep you inspired.

As modern-day women, we seem to have as many mountains to climb today as at any other time in history. Sometimes we find ourselves questioning whether we have the strength to balance the weight of all the responsibilities heaped upon our shoulders. We start our days on the run, stressed-out.  We worry that we’re unable to manage in our multiple roles as wife, daughter, mother, and career woman.

Often, we end our days seeking serenity by immersing ourselves in our favorite TV shows or social media outlets. Instead of finding peace, however, we’re bombarded with soul-shaking news stories and demoralizing images.  Those news reports seem to challenge the progress we’ve made as a people and as a nation.  And those challenges are made worse when they undermine our faith. 

We also know that we should make sure we’re healthy mentally and physically.  When one is mentally and physically fit, one can help others more efficiently. However, with so much to do and so little time, we go to bed exhausted and awaken the same way, unsure of how we’ll summon the strength to rise again and to start another day.

As women before us have known for centuries though, we must not lose heart when our help is as close as the Bible on the nightstand beside us.

8 dynamic traits of women in the Bible.

Prayer Warrior: 8 dynamic traits of women in the Bible.

OUR BIBLE, OUR POWER

The Bible tells us the story of our history, and it has the key to our empowerment. Women throughout history have overcome obstacles by seeking God.  They’ve relied upon His Word, and have gained strength from the Bible’s unlimited source of power.  

Here’s a list of 7 dynamic qualities of women in  the Bible to inspire and fortify you:

Prayer warrior. Women in the Bible reflect the power of prayer: Hannah’s prayers produce a warrior for God (1 Samuel 1:9-11); while Anna’s prayers and devotion to our Savior brought her honor and the promise of the Kingdom to come (Luke 2:36–38).

Support system. Together, Naomi and Ruth use Godly wisdom to secure their family’s future – and change the course of history (Book of Ruth).

Purpose-driven. To cure her condition, one debilitated woman endures possible disdain, scorn, and banishment to connect with Jesus. Nothing deters her from God’s Healing Power.  She exhibits a shining example of unwavering faith (Matthew 9:20-22).

Entrepreneur. The woman described in Proverbs 31 is a hard-working, enterprising, industrious entrepreneur.  She not only weaves her own fabrics (Proverbs 31:19) but from that fabric she also “makes linen garments and sells them.” She supplies products for other merchants (Proverbs 31:10-31) and makes her family proud.

Life-saver. Esther uses the power of grace, fasting, and marriage to save her people from extermination (Book of Esther).  And Deborah, prophet and judge, knows how to save her nation from oppression.  She aligns herself with a leader named Barak who can get help her to get the job done (Judges 4).

Ruler of nations. The Queen of Sheba uses wisdom and discernment before giving King Solomon her blessing (1 Kings 10:1-13).  But Jesus warns the disobedient that they will not have the same results (Matthew 12:42)!

Mother of humanity. Eve is the first woman – mother of us all (Genesis 3:20). And to Mary, a Savior is born, whose existence gives us the only living example of our fullest potential (Matthew 1:18-21).

BE INSPIRED!

So, the next time you need a boost of faith, come back to this list of Biblical heroines.  It will remind you of those who came before you; of those who faced seemingly insurmountable challenges.  They all triumphed through the power of almighty God.  

Stay strong, encouraged, and focused on the Promise of The Word. As women, we can do all things through Him who gives us strength.

EVANGELISM

Evangelism

The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he who wins souls is wise – Proverbs 11:30

The Soul Winners Evangelism Ministry is the witnessing outreach ministry of the West Angeles Church of God In Christ’s Department of Evangelism. Our  mission is winning lost souls to Jesus Christ through witnessing on the streets and door to door, in the communities surrounding the West Angeles Cathedral and North Campus. “Evangelism is not an option,” says Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr., “it is a mandate…Not only is it a mandate, it is a survival strategy.”

Under the leadership of our Presiding Bishop and Evangelist Yvonne Biggs, the Soul Winners witnessing teams witness every Saturday, and participate and partner with other evangelism ministries. Ongoing initiatives and programs include:

  • Monthly Team Meetings, Training Classes and Orientation
  • Evangelist Certification Program
  • Monthly Fast
  • Prayer Shut-in
  • Intercessory Prayer Group
  • Prayer Partners
  • Annual Awards Dinner
  • Annual Summer Rally
  • Annual Evangelism Conference

The Soul Winners Logo depicts light bearers- bringing light to those that sit in darkness in the shadow of the church.  Be a beacon of light: become part of our ministry.

Soul Winners Evangelism Ministry: “To give light to those who sit in darkness” – Luke 1:79

Presiding Bishop Charles Edward Blake, Sr on Evangelism:

“What should be our endeavor? Life on earth ought not be a quest for the things treasures or the material goods of the earth. Life ought to be a quest to know God and the Kingdom of God.

Jesus said, ‘You’re going to be a minister; you’re going to be a witness…’ That means that evangelism is not an option, it is a mandate…Not only is it a mandate, it is a survival strategy. It means that you’re going to help people; you show concern for people, and you serve people even as you witness to them.

Tell somebody else what the Lord has done for you. You may not give that individual a material possession, but you give them something that money cannot buy.

When you win a soul you:

  1. rob the devil of one more victim.
  2. give that person a new lease on life.
  3. make the world a better place.

The world would be a better place if everybody loved Jesus. The stars on Hollywood Boulevard are not the only stars…The Bible says that soul winners are stars!  When God becomes your priority, He takes care of your sojourn on the earth.”

Evangelist-Missionary Fellowship

Evangelist-Missionary Fellowship

Then He said unto His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore, pray the Lord of the Harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” Matthew 9:37-38 NKJV

The Evangelist-Missionary Fellowship of West Angeles Church of God in Christ is anointed and appointed to preach, teach, deliver and heal through the power of the Holy Ghost. Training to obtain your license as an Evangelist-Missionary is provided in the School of Practical Christian Living, (PCL) and in the West Angeles Bible College, taught by our own seasoned missionaries. These courses are also beneficial for those not wanting to obtain a license.

Any gift or calling that embodies Christ,  has a place in the Evangelist-Missionary Fellowship under the covering of our Pastor Bishop Charles E. Blake, our auxiliary manager, Elder Oscar Owens, and our President Dr. Catherine Gray.  Come with me on a tour inside the Evangelist Missionary Fellowship.

Inside the Evangelist-Missionary Fellowship 

Do you have the gift of mercy? The hospital, sick and shut-in visitation, ministry needs laborers. Or, perhaps you function better in the gift of help. The Missionaries help Sister Dorothy Johnson on Skid Row on 2nd and 4th Sundays. You will always be welcome there.

Do you sing? The missionary choir ministers every 5th Sunday night and during our revivals. Don’t they sound good? Our ministry in the convalescent hospitals and the House of Uruhu need singers to raise the praise on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and 4th Sunday.

Has God given you a ministry of deliverance, healing or prayer? Then join the other Missionaries who labor as altar workers, prayer intercessors, and warriors. You will become closer to God as a result.

Are you looking for a Sunday School class? Rush to rooms 10-14 in the multipurpose building at 8:30 am on Sunday mornings. You will find an informative, inspiring study of the Word of God. You can also participate as you volunteer to answer questions from the lessons on a weekly basis.

Want to meet more people in a smaller setting? Join us in the multipurpose building in rooms 1, 3,5 at 7:00p.m. for our third Friday night fellowship meeting, where the Holy Spirit is always in charge.

These are just a few examples of members of the Evangelist-Missionary Fellowship who labor in the Kingdom. Other examples include: Usher Board, Deaconess Board, Sunday School teachers, leaders in the Small Group Discipleship Ministry and in various other areas of the church.

There is a place. Here.

Did you know that the executive director of the Youth Ministry, the director of volunteer services, and the President of the Young Women’s Christian Council are all licensed Evangelist-Missionaries? We believe that whatever our hands find to do, we will do it to the glory of God.

We beseech you to answer the call for laborers, to go into the Lord’s harvest while it is day, “for night commeth and no woman can work.”

“For you are God’s fellow workers” I Corinthians 3:9a NKJV

Laborers Needed

Full time employment, great benefits and bonuses.

Qualifications:  Saved, Sanctified and filled with the Holy Ghost. Must love people; be unselfish and devoted to prayer, and bible study.

Do you qualify? If so, then you are the person God is calling into His harvest. Call us today at 323/733-8300.
