What a Woman Wants Part 2

Women want to be active in their Church and community.

In the previous article I discussed the woman’s role in preaching and teaching according to the Holy Bible. They are not I suppose excused from the Great Commission, but the manner and place of women fulfilling it is definitely different from men.

What then can they do in the Church other than one preacher suggesting they could pick up trash.

Luke 2:36-37 KJV tells us, And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity; [37] And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.

This is more than what I do, it is an example of acceptable service in the Church. Please notice it does not say she led prayer or even spoke aloud.

Acts 16:13 KJV And on the sabbath we went out of the city by a river side, where prayer was wont to be made; and we sat down, and spake unto the women which resorted thither.

Women pray outside of church. The details are thin, but it sounds like a place where women met and where God was discussed.

1 Peter 3:6 KJV Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.

What respect for her husband! Can you imagine an American woman calling her husband lord?

I felt the previous article left out these astounding examples of womanhood in the Church, Anna and Sara. And also Dorcas who made coats for many, Acts 9:36 KJV Now there was at Joppa a certain disciple named Tabitha, which by interpretation is called Dorcas: this woman was full of good works and almsdeeds which she did.

There is much a Woman can do, but as with men there is Biblical instruction to be followed. We honor God by doing what he asks of us, not what we ourselves want to do.
