God’s Truth for Trying Times - 11/26/21


We need God’s truth in trying times. Read the Scripture passage, think about what it is saying, then pray; by yourself or with your household. Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly (Col. 3:16).


READ: 1 Timothy 2:11-12

Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. [1 Timothy 2:11-12 ESV] 


CONSIDER: These verses are very clear that women are not to preach or be elders in the church. Exercising authority over men in the church in a teaching capacity is not permitted. It is because of the order of creation. It is because of the roles that God has given men and women. We honor God when we acknowledge the Lordship of Christ and the authority of scripture.



THINK: What does this declare about God? What are God’s people being called to do? What assurance is given? How does the Word of God transform our hearts and lives and relationships?


PRAY: Pray these verses to God as a prayer. Pour out your heart in praise to God. Pray for others. Present needs to Him.
