I wanted to repost this from last year becasue it’s still very relevant.

Being that today has been proclaimed, ‘A Day Without Women Day’. I’d like to share my blog with you based on my Pastor’s sermon a couple weeks ago. If you’re demanding your worth from others and you want to be appreciated and accepted, I hope you are encouraged by this post.

Women have always endured a fierce and unrelenting struggle regarding their worth. Through out history women have been thought of as commodities…things to be used by men. They have been told they are without significance or purpose; made only for the pleasure of others. Even the women’s revolution of the 1970s did not raise the value of a women’s soul, it just made them seek their worth in false things.

 Jesus Christ was the first one in history to really elevate the worth of a woman. He picked her up from the dusty cold dirt of judgment and condemnation and placed her where grace and glory dwell. He protected her from death of others and gave her dignity to live. No one had ever done that before. Quite the opposite, women have forever been mistreated, abused, neglected and abandoned. All that changed when Christ came!

Through out Jesus’ time on earth, he went out of his way to minister to the broken hearts of women. Women who were thought of as dogs in society, who were cast off and forgotten and damaged, he now declared equal with man.

Have you ever thought of how Jesus chose to appear to women first, after his Resurrection? The task of proclaiming the single most significant event in human history, that would transform billions of people’s lives over time, was given to two women who were devalued in their culture. Yes, he gave the responsibility to tell the world that he had risen from the dead… to women.

At that time women were not even allowed to testify in court. They were not considered a reliable witness, but Jesus placed his trust in their hands because he valued them. He did not think of them as unintelligent or incapable, he considered them as his daughters, made in his likeness. Jesus came to declare to the world that all are equal in God’s sight…all are one! 

God has no favorites; we are all made in his image. He cares about every heart no matter if it’s male or female or from this race or that. Jesus came to show you the way to true worth, something you will never find in any person or position, because it is pure and perfect and comes from the heart of God. I pray you will discover it and stop chasing your worth in other things.

  1. God has no favorites; we are all made in his image. He cares about every heart no matter if it’s male or female or from this race or that.
    So true!! And I completely agree that the feminist revolution made women seek their worth in false things. We find our true worth in Christ’s death for our sins and in serving God.

  5. AMEN! I am a daughter of my Father, and a sister of Christ, just as loved as my brother who is a son of the Father, and a brother of Christ! My hope is this is what the church teaches today.

  10. I wish more women would realize that, Amy, but that’s why we write, isn’t it, to reveal his love! Thank you for taking time to read my blog!

  11. In a world that often views the church as old fashioned or sexist, I think it’s important to remember what you talk about in this blog post. Jesus was counter-cultural in his treatment and respect of women. The church was one of the few places at that time where women were seen as equal partners as members of the family of God. While men and women may be different physically and in other ways, Jesus affirms the value of women as men’s equals and brings them to his table.

  12. Yes, you are so right, Ashleigh! The world has tried to cover the truth about the freedom he has brought to all women! Talk about a revolution…Christ started it all! Thank you for your encouragment!
