Evangelical Servant -Leadership is Contrary to Biblical Male Headship
It has been about 3 or 4 years now that I was exposed to the term “servant-leadership,” It was put in the context that men are to be like Christ in laying down His life for the Church. That man would need to “lay down their life for their wives .”And while I agree that if an intruder was entering my house to cause harm, my husband would indeed lay down his life for me, I know this. And I am sure most wives would be sure of the same. (except maybe for John Piper. Another blog post for that one)
But that is not the context that these women were using. “Lay down their lives for their wives .”They were using it in the context that a husband should do whatever his wife needs to be happy. He is supposed to sacrifice “everything” for his wife, even his leadership. That male headship was archaic and needed to be smashed, “the patriarchy .”That a real man empathized with his wife, sacrificed his health, wealth, and manhood to accommodate his wife. What if that wife was not happy or lacking? That was the failure of her “servant-leader.”
Mark 1: A Godly Wife Will Put Others Before Herself
This will be a 10 Part Series highlighting the 10 Marks of a Godly Wife.
Learning, growing and being a teachable wife is such is the case with a godly wife. We will want to put others first, as Christ put others first as he sacrificed on the Cross, to take the Wrath from the Father that we deserved.
Fret Not Because of Evil Men
For the Love of God, Husbands and Children
Your children want you, mamas. They don't need "stuff." They need their mama. The security, love, and nurturing that only a mama can give, is needed and commanded by scripture. Your bodily presence is what God has intended. God intended for mamas to nurse their babies, to be the provider of their babies. To thrive, they need you. You are your child’s actual lifeline

Women Teaching Women, Biblically
So much of contemporary Ladies bible studies is without the focus of our “places”, our “roles” as women, helpmeets.Even single women. We are women, and God has designed us and our role, according to His design. Women’s bible studies today operate as free agents, outside of their high calling as woman, wife, mother, sister, and daughter. That’s why I refer to most “women’s bible studies” as mostly being more masculine. They are conducted, detached from their womanhood.
The Feminist Doctrine of "Mutual Submission"
The Feminist Doctrine of "Mutual Submission"
Mutual submission seems like such a nice and “fair” term. Who doesn’t want to be fair? Fair means equality, right. It means everyone is going to be doing and saying the same thing.
But, we often forget in our feminist world, and in our churches, that God is not a feminist. God cares not about ‘fair” or “equality”. God does not want nor need the approval of a sinful culture. On the contrary, the sinful culture will answer for not fearing ,nor obeying God and His Word.
Baby Shower Devotional Psalm 127
Unless the LORD builds the house,
those who build it labor in vain.
Unless the LORD watches over the city,
the watchman stays awake in vain.
It is in vain that you rise up early
and go late to rest,
eating the bread of anxious toil;
for he gives to his beloved sleep.
Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD,
the fruit of the womb a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior
are the children of one’s youth.
Blessed is the man
who fills his quiver with them!
He shall not be put to shame
when he speaks with his enemies in the gate
Obey God: Submit to Your Husband
Men and women, left to their own devices do whatever is right in their own eyes. Here we are in our time where the current state of affairs is confusion on gender, marriage and family. The world has determined that God’s order is of no consequence. We have been walking in this path that has brought us to this cliff. As we stand at the edge, we look back and see that many in the Church have joined the world in eroding biblical clarity and authority.
The Church has lost its voice in the culture as well as in the church. Much of the Church has surrendered significant ground on marriage and gender. They have compromised on what Scripture actually says. In part it has been a subtle effort, to soften what God has said, to appease a culture that is saturated in Feminism and Gender confusion.
The Church is lacking courage to speak boldly even when the church may even hold to a biblical stance. Not wanting to offend a congregation that is becoming more and more like the world. So most tend to avoid the topic all together. Avoided like the plague by Pastors, because Church leaders have failed to biblically counsel and abdicating to worldly psychology. Instead of applying the Word of God, they punt the issues to secular institutions that cannot answer these questions biblically. In doing so the Church begins to think, not scripturally on these issues, but as the cultural does.
Encouragement for Battle Worn Christian Women
Not because at any minute, I believe I may just turn around and head down the broad path, Oh dear, no. It’s hard, and at the same time I know I can give up, but God will be there. He will hold me, sustain me, and make me battle ready, again. I cannot leave him. I can assure you, He has quite a firm grip on me. Body and soul. When I am down, sorrowful and my eyes cannot help but continually fill with tears, there is no “giving up”.
The Alpha Wife vs The Christian Wife
It’s shocking really, we see someone that micromanages her husband, day in and day out. Her husband may not make a decision without her, unless she agrees with said decision. The husband is not valued or loved. He is an object of bitterness and wrath. All decisions must be approved by her, or accusations of manipulation and lies, will soon follow.The husband takes upon the submissive role as he is ruled over by the wife. He must often, work out of the home, and work hard inside the home. Alpha wives, many times, insist on being served and rarely, serve.
The "feminized church" Encourages Contentious, Demanding and Abusive Wives
In our current climate of the #Metoo movement we see a kind of deifying of women. What do I mean? Well, the very premise of the #MeToo movement is to #BelieveALLWomen. Believe all women. No matter the accusation. Women do not lie. Women are pure, men are evil. Women can do no wrong. Men do everything wrong. Men must repent to women, for oppression, and for being men, That’s sounds like deifying women to me.

The Heart of Her Husband Trusts Her
Can your husband trust you with his heart? Have you betrayed your husband’s heart? It is so very important to a godly marriage, and I cannot stress it enough, that your husband be able to know his heart is safe with you, his wife. His help meet. You should be your husbands most trusted confidant, lover and friend.
Proverbs tells us that a man that has a wife, that he can trust his heart with, will be a man that will lack no gain. That means he will have a secure and trusted homefront, unencumbered and undisturbed by those that would seek to attack or demean him. That the husband is secure. That, what goes on in his home and his marriage, is a bond that is not shared with anyone. Not in-laws, friends or foes. Not with anyone. This is a husband that can trust his wife to never do him any harm, all the days of his lif

You May be in a Feminist Church if........
Feminism has infiltrated the conservative bible believing Churches.
How can God's Word be proclaimed when the framework to teach the Word, is feminism?
This is something the Church must repent of.
Women are not victims of abortion. Abortion must be abolished. God hates it. No matter how many Pastors show partiality to women over God's Word.
Women are accountable before God.
We are female and are as much sinners as our husbands
Cleave To That Which Is Good
Is There a Secret to a Lasting Marriage
What are your expectations of Marriage?
Are your expectations based on biblical truth or based in worldly precepts?
Do you have a Titus 2 woman to mentor you on the doctrine of marriage?
The Cross and Sacrificial Love
In todays world it's all about "self". We have self love, self care, self esteem. What happened to the Golden Rule? Doing for others?
Christ is our example. He sacrificed. He did not come to take but rather to give. His love for His Father and His people caused Him to lay down His very life for us.
We love our neighbors because of the Great love that we were shown. We don't expect to be served but we gladly serve. When Christ told us to pick up our cross, He already knew how hard that Cross would be to carry.
Follow Christ and His example of sacrificial love, not the idolatry of self love that the world holds dear.
Displaying God’s Creation in Our Femininity
Being female is our creation mandate.
God has made us woman and called it "Good"
We can and should display our femininity and not ever be ashamed of how God mad us.
A Disgraceful Practice
Pastor Danny Steinmeyer takes us through 1 Corinthians 11:4-6 in a God honoring, Scripture saturated, sermon, it as God has made Himself known to us, that He is the same yesterday , today and forever. I pray this sermon blesses and challenges you. I was convicted very much by it.
What would you wear to identify with Christ? Would you wear red clothing for the blood of Christ, sticking out like a sore thumb?
The Salvation message: Men and women are invited equally to receive redemption, equally, by faith.
Christ head of man, man head of woman. This is authority
Men submission to Christ, they honor and obey.
Women are always to be under headship of her husband and the daughter under the authority of her father.
Paul is confirming the distinctions of roles.
We glorify God in what we wear. We glorify God in embracing our femininity, dress and attitudes. Don't think what you show on the outside doesn't matter. Everything we do glorifies God or does not bring Him glory. How you express your biological sex does matter to God.
The Significance of Tradition
Jesus was no feminist. Your life is a billboard to who you serve. Who's side are you on? Everything we do matters. The way we dress, the way we express our heart in our clothing. The practice of head covering is a clarification of God's Created order. Whether you cover your head or you do not, this sermon gets to the very heart of the matter. This is Pastor Danny Steinmeyer and he gets to the heart of the matter.
Embrace the role God has designed for you.
Christ submitted to God, on the Cross
Man is to submits to God
And we as wives are to submit to both Christ and our husbands.
Feminism's Futile Attempt to Dethrone God
More and more the visible Church seeks to appease the world. And feminism affects us all. We have been raised in it. Taught it in public schools. When the world says "the way we dress doesn't matter" then the church takes it and puts a "christianized" slant on it and it sounds something like "God knows my heart, it doesn't matter how I dress" or " You going to push people away with talking about clothing" Well, that all sound good, not really, but not really. It sounds "accepting " and "affirming" but not scriptural. God speaks to us in Scripture about how He wants us to live, think, dress. All of like is to be lived to the glory of God. We don't want to please the world but please our Lord.
Historical Biblical Male Hierarchy/Patriarchy Explained
Biblical Patriarchy is just that. Biblically historical. God's Word has never changed or been ashamed of God's order, design of HIs creation. It does not claim to have morphed into complementariansim as weak men and masculine women have tried to claim. We are as Christians, not here to appease the world and its fake systems. It's systems made of the imagination that in their totality seek to tear down and deconstruct biblical Truth. We will not have any part in that. We unashamedly declare God's Word as intended by the Author for the Author.
