• “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

Why Was I Created a Woman? by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 07/01/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Why were you created as a woman?

“Uhh . . . to bring home the bacon?!” (laughter)

“It was just chance, I guess.”

“So I could turn some heads!”

Nancy: Do you know that the Bible has a lot to say about why women were created?

“The LORD God said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him’” (Gen. 2:18).

Nancy: Are you willing to sacrifice your own ambitions to fulfill your role as a helper to your husband?

“For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; neither was man created for woman, but woman for man” (1 Cor. 11:8-9).

Nancy: Is your life helping and blessing the men around you?

“The woman is the glory of man” (1 Cor. 11:7).

Nancy: Why were you created as a woman? As you read God’s Word, ask Him to show you His purpose for your life. Then ask Him to help you fulfill that purpose.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
