• “A Christian woman’s true freedom lies on the other side of a very small gate—humble obedience—but that gate leads out into a largeness of life undreamed of by the liberators of the world, to a place where the God-given differentiation between the sexes is not obfuscated but celebrated, where our inequalities are seen as essential to the image of God, for it is in male and female, in male as male and female as female, not as two identical and interchangeable halves, that the image is manifested.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Living Like God is Alive by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 03/23/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: I once met a woman who described her life in this way:

“I was proud of my reputation and my position. I was known at the country club where I was an officer, known among the elite of the community, and known as a leader at my church. But I was unteachable. Although I was a leader, I wasn’t in the Word. The one thing I did know was how to play church. I knew how to pretend.”

Nancy: Things changed when she attended a Bible study and was pierced by three words: “God is alive.” She realized that she’d been living as if God was actually dead.

Romans 8:11 says, “If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.”

Are you living like God is alive?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. — Matthew 5:11-12 (NKJV)
