In previous lessons we have looked at Scriptures directed to women. We have also studied many women of the Bible. However, we must see that all Scripture is for us (men and women) and is profitable to us. For example, if we have not seen from the Scriptures that we are sinners and must believe in the Lord Jesus Christ to be saved, then we would not be able to live up to the Scripture that we have been studying.
In Romans 3:23 we read,
“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
And in Romans 3:10, we see,
“As it is written, there is none righteous, no not one.”
From the time of Adam and Eve to this present day, everyone that was born was born a sinner. However, our wonderful God made provision whereby we could come out from under the penalty of sin. He did this by sending His only Son, who was sinless, perfect, and righteous, to die for us.
“For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.” (1 Cor. 15:3-4)
We must believe this in our hearts. When we believe with our hearts, we accept Christ as our Saviour. If there is one who has been studying these lessons for women who is not saved, you must accept Christ as your Saviour before you will be able to be the kind of woman mentioned in the previous lesson. None of us can live the life we should as a child of God, unless we first of all know the Lord Jesus as our Saviour: “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved” (Acts 16:31). The apostle Paul says in Philippians 4:13,
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
No one, in their own strength, can live the life that God wants us to live. It is only when we have the Lord as our Saviour, we can live the life that we should live for Him. When we accept Christ as our Saviour, He comes to dwell in our hearts and will lead and direct us in all things if we yield to Him.
If we have Christ in our hearts, we can go further and obey Romans 12:1-2 which says,
“I beseech you therefore, brethren by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.”
If we accept Him as our Saviour, then we can present our bodies to Him, letting Him direct our lives through the Word. Then we can live a life that will be honoring to Him, bring glory to His Name, and be for His pleasure.
