Understanding our Roles as Biblical Women
- Wednesday, October 17, 2012
I take my role as a Biblical woman very seriously. I know that the Lord has a plan for my life.
Currently, my primary role is as wife to my husband Jason and future Mommy to the twins preparing to make their way into this world in December.
I am a homemaker. A wife. A mother-to-be. A cook. A cleaner. And perfectly where God wants me to be.
Do you know how I know this? God told me so in His word. He has left instructions for how He wants us to live. We just have to listen!
And so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled. ~Titus 2:4-5
God instructs us that we are to love our husbands. We are to love our children! We are to be self-controlled, which means to constantly be striving again sin in our lives and to be pure.
He wants us to be working at home. I know being a stay at home wife and mother is HARD work. It takes constant diligence and work. He instructs us to be kind to our family and to others. This also can sometimes feel like a full time job!
And we are to be submissive to our husbands. Plain and simple he has laid this out in His word.
Just from these two simple verses we can glean all of that. Other Bible verses such as 1 Peter 3:1-4, and 1 Timothy 2:9-10 can help us to further understand our roles.
