There have always been many voices saying “This is the way to know God.” Today’s media explosion has created more voices and more confusion. Why then another? Our purpose is to share truth to help strengthen your relationship with God and with other believers in your locality.

Personal connection with other believers cannot be replaced by the mass media. It is much more satisfying to have a deep spiritual relationship with ten believers than to be in a crowd of ten thousand. Every individual is important to God, and His plan involves each one in a very real way. There are things that are important to God that can only take place in close personal relationships.

The goal of God is to build a family of His children together in love, walking in truth. Personal submission and obedience to Christ will bring conformity of each member to Christ, and a growing expression of the nature of God in a local gathering. The testimony going out to the world around will be as a “light set on a hill that cannot be hidden” and “the pillar and ground of the truth.”

Episode 25: The plan of God in creation concerning man and woman

One of the critical issues that we face today is the differing roles of man and woman in the working of God. This has always been an issue, but today we see the enemy bringing all of the force he can to bring confusion to God’s order. Today we look briefly at this all important subject.  It was God who created man and woman, and His creation was perfect. Sin has distorted His design but God has not changed His mind today regarding His plan concerning man and woman in all aspects of life. To allow God to wash our minds of natural reasoning is difficult, but I believe if we want to know the full blessing and approval of God we must function as God has designed.

• Creation
o Man created first, then woman taken from man (I Tim. 2:13)
o Woman created as a suitable “helper” for man (Gen. 2:18)
o Woman was taken out of man and brought back in relationship (I Cor. 11:8)
o God’s order in creation is stated in I Cor. 11:3
• The family is a visible expression of God’s order
o The husband is the leader, responsible for all things
o The wife is the helper, fitting together with her husband as “one”
o The family is the structure in which children are brought to maturity
• The Family of God
o God’s order is maintained in the family of God
o God’s children are brought to maturity in His family
o The natural family fits into God’s family (Ref. Eph. 5:22-33)
• The function of Man (husband)
o Overseer (in natural and spiritual family)
o Leadership (example, vision, direction)
o Ministry (laying down his life, serving, lifting up his wife with him)
• The function of Woman (wife)
o To assist the man in his responsibility
o To allow herself to be led (not to exercise authority over men, I Tim. 2:11-13)
o To minister (in her place with her grace)
• The challenge in our day
o To take our view from God and not natural reasoning or culture
o To stand in truth and love
