Women of the Lord’s church
(Eunice and Lois, Euodia and Syntyche, Sapphira, Priscilla, and Lydia)
Throughout “To Be a Handmaid of the Lord” I strive to show from scripture how vital God sees women to be. I encourage you to explore this lesson on Women of the church and see how God does not put these women down, rather He deals with them equally as He does the men.
Women have roles to fulfill, as do men. They may not be the same roles, but they are all of equal value to God’s plan. We can’t all be preachers and elders (Ephesians 4:11-12). Not all of us are equally good at exhorting or showing mercy (Romans 12:6-8). We are all important in the things which we do. Strive to be a worker who is commended as Priscilla, Euodia, Syntyche, Lois, and Eunice was. Avoid making the mistake of Sapphira of trying to be something that you are not and lying about it. Always be eager to learn and to make changes in your life like Lydia. Don’t forget to THANK GOD for the examples He has laid out for you. These women are given in scripture to HELP you. Let them.
