What describes the Christian woman? Before I give you a description of who the Christian woman is, let me first tell you who she is not.
The Christian woman is not:
- A woman who’s simply attached herself to a plethora of religious practices or beliefs.
- A woman who confesses to be in Christ, yet lives life on her own terms.
- A woman who’s simply prayed a “heartfelt” prayer, without the correct heart posture or understanding of what salvation truly is.
- A woman who’s signed her name on a church roll, simply for show, or in hopes that it’ll get her into the pearly gates.
The Christian woman is:
- A woman who has responded to the call of Christ (cf. John 6:44).
- A woman who’s repented of her sins and placed her faith in the finished work of Christ—His death, burial, and resurrection—for the forgiveness of her sins (1 Corinthians 15).
- A woman who’s been born again—of water and the Spirit (John 3:3-5).
- A woman who’s submitted to Jesus Christ as LORD of her life, and has made His Word (the Bible) the authority in her life (Proverbs 4:20-22).
After reading that brief description, can you honestly say that you are a Christian woman? If so, great! But if not, don’t fret; you can be. If you so desire, head over to the “Invitation” section, where you’ll learn about Jesus Christ, your earnest need to repent and believe in Him, and what it takes to become a Christian woman (also hinted at above:).
