Why We Need Women To Lead

Alfredo Ramos Week 3

Gender roles are controversial in culture and in the church. The Bible paints a powerful picture of women leadership and how men can respect and follow that leadership. More than recognizing a woman's ability to lead, the Bible shows that God does big things when men honor the voices of women and recognize God's calling in their life. What would happen in this cultural moment if in the church men were sensitive to the call of God on women's lives? The church can be a completely unique space in culture if we catch this vision.

As you consider the role of women in leadership, what thoughts or feelings come to mind? Is there any obstacle or sense of jadedness that needs to be addressed? Ask God to help you overcome these. Spend some time thanking God for the strong women in your life and ask God to give you a sense of confidence in the ways you have gifted them, as well as the ways in which He has gifted you.

What does the Bible say about what it means to be a woman? The Bible teaches that God made humans male and female and that gender is sacred - but how the church has historically understood the roles of men and women and how they work together has varied. She/Her is a teaching series on what the Bible has to say about God's design for femininity, who some of the key female figures are in the story of the Bible, and what those stories teach us about the gift of women today.
