I am so grateful that you stopped by to visit. Besides being a high value woman of substance ~ a queen ~ a woman is supposed to know her worth. Like the most valuable and precious gem, her body, mind and spirit are exceedingly valuable. Femininity is about respect for life in all its forms. It’s time to take a bold step of faith out of your comfort zone and discover what God has for you. Join us as we explore biblical femininity.
What is Femininity?
Let’s begin by thinking about femininity in Genesis 1-3.
Remember that Gen 1:27-28 is foundational for our view of men and women. It teaches that man and woman are both created in God’s image. They have the same value, dignity, honor, and worth.
When we turn to Genesis 2, we see that God gives men and woman distinct roles. The man is created first, and in verse 15 he receives his commission from God: “The LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.” But things aren’t yet “very good.” Look at verse 18: “Then the LORD God said, ‘It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.’”
Notice: What is the woman’s role designed to be? She’s a “helper” to the man as he exercises his leadership over the garden. This doesn’t mean that Eve was created to make Adam breakfast in bed or fetch him the TV remote. God blesses the man with her to help him faithfully carry out God’s commission and commands. The problem wasn’t that man was lonely – he had perfect fellowship with God. The problem was that he was incompetent for his task of working and guarding the Garden without the woman! She is his partner who complements him. She improves his weaknesses and sharpens his strengths. And his calling is to love and protect her, sacrificially.
