Week 1 Gender Matters: Discussion Questions

Hello dear sisters! I hope you have been enjoying week 1 of our study. There is so much good stuff packed into this week. I want to share with you a quote from the authors from day 2 page 27. “Men were created to reflect the strength, love, and self-sacrifice of Christ. Women were created to reflect the responsiveness, grace, and beauty of the bride He redeemed. And marriage was created to reflect he covenant union of Christ and His bride.”

For those of you that attend Oakwood Community Church or listen to PD’s sermon messages online, I love how our study goes right along with The Gospel Series we began earlier this month.

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.

  1. Do you feel that your womanhood displays God’s glory? Explain why or why not.
  2. Describe some ways in which you think a male-female relationship could put God on display.
  3. How do you feel when the Bible uses male-gendered words like “man” or “brothers” to refer to men and women as a group? Why?
  4. What are some of the places you look to find your sense of value and worth?
  5. What kind of impact do you think might be made if multitudes of Christian women were to say “Yes, Lord!” to His biblical design for their lives as women?

On page 39 of our homework we were asked to write out a prayer, asking Him to teach us more about what womanhood means, and to help us grow to be a True Woman of God. I would like to encourage you to do that!

We have a group of women meeting on Monday evening to do this very same study. Click here to watch a clip of our Monday night group discussing week 1.

True Woman 101: Week 1 Gender Matters

Welcome sisters to week 1 of our online Bible study; True Woman 101: Divine Design by Mary Kassian and Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth (Nancy Leigh DeMoss). We are so excited you’ve decided to join us for this study!

As you work through week 1 be sure to check in here for additional posts. If you get behind that’s okay, the posts will always be available here.

I want to share a paragraph from the authors in the introduction. “What exactly is a True Woman? She is, quite simply a woman who is being molded and shaped according to God’s design. She’s a woman who loves Jesus and whose life is grounded in, tethered to, and enabled by Christ and His gospel. As a result, she is serious about bringing her thoughts and actions in line with what the Bible says about who she is and how she ought to live. She is a woman who rejects the world’s pattern for womanhood, and gladly wears God’s designer label instead.” I desire to be a True Woman and I guess you do to since you’re doing this study with us. Please join me in praying for our sisters to be True Woman.

Once you’ve completed the homework for this week click here to watch the True Woman Week 1: Gender Matters video.

Come back on Wednesday for our Discussion Questions. You can share your thoughts and comments with us here, jot them down in your book during your quiet time or discuss them with another sister doing the study with you. Please let us know how we can pray for you throughout the study. Have a great week!
