First off, if you know where that lyric is from, please be my friend. But this is not about a musical. This is about us women stepping up and taking a powerful stance. This is how I see it and perceive it, so do let me know your own thoughts on this.
I feel like we always hear, as girls especially, how we’re delicate flowers in all our beauty. That’s nice to hear, not going to lie. But we are also so much more than that. Women in the Bible have always been powerful figures. From Esther to the woman that poured perfume at Jesus’ feet, each has done something that made a change. There needs to be a shift
This isn’t about pinning one side against the other. But to realize that spreading the Word of God is a job everyone has. Women just need to be a bigger part of it and not feel like we’re only capable of speaking sweet encouraging things to just women. Everyone needs the Gospel.Just because we're women doesn't mean we're less qualified to speak the Gospel. Click To Tweet
The first church I ever attended had a woman pastor. I’m pretty thankful for this because I always thought that was normal. Women were always the first to raise their hands to serve and help. Walk into any Christian college and you will notice the big ratio of women to men. For me personally, some of the most life-changing messages I’ve heard have been from Christine Caine and Lisa Harper. Women aren’t weak. They’re ready to raise their hand and be part of what God wants to do. Just because we’re women doesn’t mean we’re less qualified.
We are all called to bring the message of God to people. I’m not saying that men can’t preach but to allow women a place on the table. God’s kingdom is for all. We are all called to spread the Gospel. There is a purpose for each of us and we can’t minimize it because we’re women and not overstep societal boundaries. The way I see it (again this is just how I perceive it) women in ministry are not taken as seriously as they should. So my argument is that women in ministry should. We possess the same power of God. Women can also study theology and speak on it just as well. The Gospel is for everyone and women can have powerful ministries that make a difference.
Ladies, what are some ways you rise up in your ministry?
Psalm 46:5 NIV
God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.
