by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies – You Are An Angelic Messenger
Editor’s note: So now not only do the women in Nancy Campbell’s quiverfull world have to do all the housework, all the schooling, all the child-rearing, suppress every negative emotion or thought, now they have to be ‘angelic messengers’ too? The demands on women in this movement are never ending without people like Nancy adding more ‘to-do’s.
“To show forth” is the Greek word “exaggello” and means “to publish, to celebrate.” It comes from a root word “aggelos” which means “a messenger, or especially an angel.” What does God want you to do? To be an angelic messenger! God wants to use you has His messenger to bring His Word, His truth, and His love to people every day.
This means of course that you begin in your home. Mother, you have little ones, and maybe bigger ones around you every day. You are God’s messenger to each one of them. You have the opportunity to bring God’s Word and truth to them every day–when you are lying down, walking around, or sitting at the table (Deuteronomy 6:6-9). You are to light up their lives and day by day bring them from darkness to light.
You’ll continue to be God’s messenger when you leave the home too–when you go out to get the groceries or whatever you have to do. Remember you are God’s messenger to everyone you meet.
Have a lovely day being God’s angel to everyone in your home.
