Women in Acts (1)

Acts tells us about women who were part of the church. Some of these women had important roles in starting the church. Other women were only mentioned briefly. But all these women can teach us something about serving and loving God.
One of the first women mentioned in Acts is Mary, the mother of Jesus. Our Bible Reading tells us that Mary was one of the women who met with the apostles after Jesus went back to heaven. Why did Mary meet with the apostles? She met with them to pray.
It must have been exciting to be part of that prayer group. Maybe they were not sure they could do God’s work without Jesus. Perhaps they wondered how they could share the Good News with so many other people.
Mary believed in Jesus and served God through His church. You can serve God through your local church, too. Look for ways God can use you to spread His message of salvation.
