Sexuality, what did it mean then? What does it mean now? What does it mean for me?
God’s idea in Gen. 1:26 , is that humans are either male or female, “made after His likeness.”
What we are comes from Who He is. We have God’s attributes, which are divided between us as male and female.
Our sexuality is who we are from the moment of conception!
What we were born as, is what God has called us to be. Everything is determined from that point.
Things have changed in our culture to where many people don’t want to admit they are male or female. They teach that we’re not just a person only!
Our sexual differences, they say, should be obscured.
There is an effort to obliterate “he” and “she.”
The compass is totally wrong today in our culture, as there’s no “right” or “wrong” given to our young people.
We are reaping the consequences!
How do we know the definition of “woman?” We need to start with the One Who created us! Our feelings and experiences can’t run us!
We’re to submit to God’s Word as to just who we are. We need to know how and what we were created for.
We’re to take pride in that God created us!
We’re to discipline our abilities that we’ve been entrusted with by Him.
Being a woman makes us a different woman from other women. Each of us is unique, making us different, one of kind! We’re to learn that there’s a purpose for us in life.
To embrace submission to obedience to God, we will have to refuse the “humanness” idea.
Freedom to become all that He intends for us, will come from our obedience to His Word.
How far reaching is my sexuality?
Our womanhood affects every part of life.
Every culture shows differences in the sexes.
God’s Love made me a woman.
We have responsibilities, privileges and limitations.
We have the opportunity to be an example that God’s our Creator.
We’re to live to His honor!
Catherine Marshall quoted her father, Peter Marshal as having said:
“The average woman, if she gives her full time to her home, her husband, her children… will be engaged in a life work that will demand every ounce of her strength, every bit of her patience, every talent God has given her, the utmost sacrifice of her love. It will demand everything she has and more. And she will find that for which she was created. She will know that she is carrying out the will of God. She will be a partner with the Sovereign ruler of the universe.”
