• Influential New Testament Women Devotional

    Matthew 28:1–10

    According to His humanity, our Savior was often sustained by the ministrations of faithful women who loved Him more than their own lives. We have an opportunity to minister to Jesus today, not directly as these women did, but indirectly by helping out His body the church. As we care for one another, especially those who minister for His sake full time, we are showing love and concern for our Savior. May we love one another and meet the needs of God’s people (Matt. 25:31–46). View Resource

  • Women Servants Devotional

    1 Timothy 3:11

    Reformed Christians who affirm Scripture’s final authority continue to differ over whether women may be ordained as deacons. What is not up for debate is that the traits Paul lists in 1 Timothy 3:11 should be true of all Christian women, regardless of one’s position on deaconesses. If you are a woman, are you making a concerted effort to avoid slander and to be faithful? If you are a man, are you encouraging the women in your life in these things? View Resource

  • Salvation and Childbearing Devotional

    1 Timothy 2:15

    On Monday, we will look at what else Paul means in 1 Timothy 2:15. Dr. MacArthur also writes that “women have the privilege of leading many out of sin to godliness” (p. 1,784). Mothers, grandmothers, and other women who care for children profoundly shape their piety. If you are a mother, do you take this responsibility seriously? If you are not a mother, how can you help women lead covenant children in godliness? View Resource

  • Order in Creation Devotional

    1 Timothy 2:13-14

    As we consider the many cries for equality in our day, we must always test them against the authority of Scripture. Equality of worth is not grounded in the ability for men and women to serve in any office they choose but in our being made in God’s image (Gen. 1:27). Women should not covet the position of elder, and men, especially if they are pastors, teachers, or elders, should be clear that men and women alike are of equal value in the eyes of God.

  • Many Generous Women Devotional

    Luke 8:1–3

    Mary, Joanna, and Susanna obeyed the biblical principle that says the saints are to provide for those whose daily work is the Gospel ministry (1 Tim. 5:17). Like the rest of us, pastors need an adequate salary to meet the needs of their family. If you are able to influence such decisions in your local church, try to make sure your pastor is well taken care of. Moreover, we can all support our pastors with notes of encouragement or other such thanks. View Resource
