Women in Christ
We all know those women whose example shows what hights we can reach if we place our lives in God’s hands. Women, by whose example we see that living according to the Word of God leads to true happiness, joy, peace and tranquility. Then life becomes interesting and meaningful. She will withstand trials, her boundaries will be expanded, she sets new standards, endures pain and failure, and always triumphs in Christ. (2 Cor. 2:14) Examples of this life are: the wives described in the Bible, our spiritual mentors, mothers, sisters, grandmothers, aunts, friends, etc.
We are all part of a single whole. We encourage and strengthen each other in our daily lives, regardless of the circumstances in which we find ourselves, to be such wives. Through the grace of God over our lives, this is possible for each of us.
Your circumstances do not play any role here: do you work, or are at home, with your family and people close to you. Your possibilities as Christians are limitless, within the framework established by God’s will for you. The most important thing for us is not to prove ourselves and present our ideas about what we would like to achieve, but to find what is God’s will for us. So that we use our strength and time to fight to fulfill His will here on earth, as it is in heaven, through our lives. (Matt. 6:10)
Seek wisdom from above
There are many different ideas worth fighting for, many different things that we can do. In many situations, we can defend the truth by fighting injustice, both in our personal lives and in other situations. And we need wisdom to do it the right way. If we act on our own mind and on our understanding of what is right and necessary, we will not achieve righteousness. (James 1: 19-20) If we want to see results, we must seek wisdom from above.
“But the wisdom that comes down from above is, first, pure, then peaceful, modest, obedient, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and not hypocritical.” James 3:17.
Each woman has her own task received from God. We can fight for equality, respect and justice, confront discrimination in the workplace, strive to be the best mother, or just be busy walking our own path in life. However, whatever we do, we must take care to do it with humility and wisdom. Not guided by the desire to exalt ourselves, but by believing that God wants us to do these works.
Wisdom is to “find your life and lose it.” (Matt. 10:39) In other words, we must see our human reactions, which are associated with sin in the flesh, in order to abandon them and do the will of God. Then we can begin to see the situations of life as God sees them, and not in the light of our human understanding. We find the wisdom that we need so much when we seek God’s wisdom.
“Wisdom is better than weapons of war; but one sinner will destroy many good things. ” Eccl. 9:18.
“And your safe times will come, an abundance of salvation, wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the Lord will be your treasure. ” Isaiah 33: 6.
Christianity Based on the Word of God
Christianity, based on the Word of God and not on human ideas and ideologies, is a leader in equality and does not discriminate others. The hallmarks of Christianity are the fruits of the spirit: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, mercy, faith, meekness, self control. (Gal. 5: 22-23) It does not matter who you are, if you strive to live in such a way that all these qualities are manifested in you, then your life will be an example of righteousness. There is no discrimination here, each of us can come to this life. And if that becomes the standard of living for Christians, then he or she will not discriminate and hate others, be proud, bully, or try to suppress other people, including himself. Christianity raises our self-esteem (I can do everything in Jesus Christ who strengthens me!), Strengthens us and helps us not to succumb to pressure.
No one has yet reached perfection in these virtues, but we can say with Paul: “Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.” Phil. 3:12. This is the purpose of the disciple of Jesus.
If the whole world accepted this true Christianity, then all the problems associated with discrimination, differences, hatred, etc. disappeared.
This is a challenge for each of us! Fight for what includes the Kingdom of God: righteousness, love, respect, peace, joy, etc. Be the light in this dark world and show what the power of God can do in those who do His will.
