Hello dear sisters! I hope you have been enjoying the study as much as we have. This week as we’ve learned how sin has affected the male-female relationship. ” God created the sexes to live in oneness and harmony. But sin changed all that. Sin damaged woman’s inherent softness. Sin also damaged man’s inherent strength. Sin twisted and distorts gender and creates pain in the male-female relationship. It pits male and female against each other.
Here are some discussion questions. You can share your thoughts and comments here, write them down in your book during your quiet time or discuss them with another sister doing the study with you. These all come from the homework.
- Is there a relationship, sin, or struggle for which you need hope and deliverance?
- Read Revelation 21:4 in the margin on page 123. What are some attitudes and/or behaviors in relationships that induce pain, which you would like to see “pass away”?
- Where do you see men in your sphere of relationships “battling” against the pain of manhood?
- How do you feel when a girlfriend confides to you about how she’s been hurt by a man in her life?
“The problem in the male-female relationship isn’t men. It’s sin. And sin is something that affects women just as much as it affects men. Men and women may sin in different ways, but the truth of the matter is that All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Women are not innocent. Women are sinners. Women can’t fix sin. So we can’t fix men. And we can’t fix the male-female relationship. But Jesus – the Lamb of God – is willing and able to cover our sin and clothe us with His righteousness. He will help get manhood and womanhood right.” How could our marriages and other male-female relationship improve we as a True Woman really understood this?
