Do you really want Christ? Getting to the bottom of true Biblical Womanhood
Let’s dive in!
A want usually saturates every area of your life. Let me explain. Take myself for an example. I started my health journey at my heaviest 336lbs and wearing a 4x . I wanted to be overweight because I allowed myself to get this way. That was a hard truth to swallow. I worked diligently for many years at unhealthiness. I ate whatever. I had kids without working out after or during. I got more and more sedatary. I sabotaged myself, and slathered shame and guilt on top of it all and gained even more. I lacked self- control. I subscribed to satan’s web of lies podcast and listened intently with every live deception he tried. I surrounded myself with everything I needed to stay unhealthy.
My new want was to be His and submitted to wanting health. Wanting flexibility. Wanting vigor, and the ability to play and fight. My attitude changed. My attire changed. My food and drinks changed. My desires changed. My level of activity changed from sedatary to active. I soon demonstrated a person whose desire is to be fit, and my husband and I are continuing these things. I now am wearing an XL. I have a big weigh in planned for December.
It wasn’t until I wanted to change, and ask God to heal me of the undelying reasons why I was stagnant.
What does this have to do with Biblical Womanhood you may ask? Everything because many of us claim to be Christians and advocates for Biblical Womanhood but not wanting God to be evident in every area of our lives.
Rom. 6:16-18– Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness? But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness.
*Are you concerned about what God thinks?
1 Cor. 6:19-Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
1 Cor. 9:24-27– Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.
Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled. Titus 2:3-5 ESV
Discreet-Like a gold ring in a pig’s snout is a beautiful woman without discretion. Proverbs 11:22 ESV
The wisest of women builds her house, but folly with her own hands tears it down. Proverbs 14:1 ESV
Trained: For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. Hebrews 12:11 ESV
Prayerful.Confident not in ourselves but in the ability of the Lord.
Obedient to God first then to our husbands.
What went wrong ? Many things but to hit on a few.
Without Natural affection
And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them. Romans 1:28-32 ESV
I am Pro- life!
Precious babies -Aborted found in containers discarded like trash.
California and many places agree to make a law that says aborting is legal until 28 days after a baby is born. There are videoes and interviews surfacing for some calling for death up until 10 months old.
Things are growing darker ladies. We who are children of God need to be the lights in this world shining brighter, exposing darkness, and sharing Jesus like never before!
Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared, 1 Timothy 4:1-2 ESV
But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. For among them are those who creep into households and capture weak women, burdened with sins and led astray by various passions, always learning and never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth. 2 Timothy 3:1-7 ESV
So I restate the question. Do you want Christ? Let this question permeate your heart, minds, and souls today and forever. God bless you and remember to trust God Cry Repeat.
