In this message, Pastor Debbie Lindell gives an inspiring message on Phoebe from Romans 16:1-2. Join us as we study how God used a former slave girl as an important part of building the early church. Our prayer is that this message is an encouragement and blessing to your life!
I’d Like You to Meet Phoebe
Romans 16:1-2 NLT
I commend to you our sister Phoebe, who is a deacon in the church in Cenchrea. Welcome her in the Lord as one who is worthy of honor among God’s people. Help her in whatever she needs, for she has been helpful to many, and especially to me.
1. Your Past Does Not Dictate Your Future
Romans 6:8 NLT
Now you are free from your slavery to sin, and you have become slaves to righteous living.
2. The Perception of Others Does Not Define Your Potential
Romans 12:2 NLT
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
Ephesians 2:10 NLT
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
