God’s love—it often goes unnoticed. Frequently we look for the kind of love from people we forcibly appoint to, to fill that missing void we thought they can fill to the brim, but in reality, it’s only God’s love that can keep our cups full and contented. It’s not the approval and applause from other people but the love of God alone that was portrayed on the cross two thousand years ago.
The common flock’s Christian perspective gradually shifts the modern view of Jesus as generations flip from one over the other. In the books of Matthew and Luke in the New Testament, Jesus was praying alone with His disciples when He asked what people thought of Him.
A part of Jesus’ life was living an ordinary life among his fellow Jews when the land of Israel was included in the Roman Empire boundaries. For three-and-a-half years, Jesus continually preached and performed miracles until his crucifixion by the Romans. Although his life didn’t end when he died on the cross, he was resurrected for us to be perfected and cloth us in his righteousness.

Often overshadowed by this male dominance, the importance of women’s religious and spiritual voices is finally being acknowledged.
