We are going to look at Luke 8:1–3 and learn more about some of the women who participated in Jesus’ ministry and be encouraged about the impact women can and should have for the cause of Christ. In the Bible, women have been some of the greatest heroes we have as Christians, and they can be some of the greatest heroes we have here at CBC as well.
