Today’s Christian women are being pressed on every side to conform to standards of this world. Unique opportunities in the areas of education and business have opened doors to women that were not available even half a century ago. While on the one hand Christian women should enjoy the benefits of these opportunities, we must be careful not to let this world system rearrange our biblical priorities.
Our priority as women ought always be to maintain a vital personal relationship with Jesus Christ. One of my favorite passages of Scripture is found in the book of Proverbs. This verse gives women the greatest guidance we could ever receive. It says, “Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.” (Proverbs 31:30)
This “fear” is awe-filed respect that flows out of an ongoing relationship with Jesus Christ. Our careers, hobbies, and even our degrees must never overrule our daily intimacy and interaction with our Savior. An ongoing awareness of His presence and a devotion to His Word will give us stability, confidence, and direction as we pursue the various ministries God calls us into during each season of our lives.
So in whatever season you find yourself, Jesus Christ will give you the peace and victory you need to accomplish all that He has for you to do.
In Psalm 139:14, it says “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”
The Hebrew word for fearfully is “yare” which means reverence.
The Hebrew word for wonderfully is “palah”, which means to distinguish; put a difference; show marvelous; set apart.
You are valuable because God made you fearfully and wonderfully. He distinguished you and set you apart through your uniqueness. For example, everybody has a nose, but not everyone has the same nose shape. Everybody has a mouth, but not everyone has the same shape.
With your uniqueness, come spiritual gifts.
1. Spiritual gifts are special abilities.
Therefore, spiritual gifts are not the same as natural talents or skills.
|SPIRITUAL GIFTS||NATURAL TALENTS||SKILLS|
|Given by Holy Spirit||Natural abilities||Learned abilities|
|Discovered after spiritual birth||Present from natural birth||Acquired with training|
|God given to all members of the Body of Christ||God given to all members of humanity||Developed by people over time|
2. . . . that God gives to every believer.
“All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he gives them to each one, just as he determines”. (1 Corinthians 12:11)
3. . . . to build up the Body of Christ . . .
“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.” (1 Peter 4:10)
“. . . so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” (Ephesians 4:12-13)
4. . . . and equip them for ministry to the world
“And this good news of the kingdom (the Gospel) will be preached throughout the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then will come the end.” (Matthew 24:14)
“But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.” (I Corinthians 12:7-12)
You have a place where you are suppose to be in the Body of Christ pursuant to God’s predestined plan for your life.
You can’t make yourself an evangelist when God has predestined and ordained you to be a teacher. There is no need to make a claim that you are a teacher. Just do the work of one (bear fruit) and people will know that you are a teacher. If your God-given gift is to exhort (encourage), then do the work of an exhorter, and people will identify you as such. Some think they are positions of prestige, but they are stations of service. Don’t demand people to call you a particular title, just do what God has called you to do.
“As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” (I Peter 4:10-11)
