Honoring the Lord

Women’s Roles – Do Our Lives Line Up?


Recently, I have been studying what women’s roles are in the home, in the family, and in the church. There are several New Testament passages that outline women’s roles. This is not a comprehensive list, but here are a few of the principles that we can draw from these passages. You may want to go through this list of questions and see how your life compares.

Titus 2:3-5 – My home and family

  • Am I characterized by reverent (dignified) behavior?
  • Am I a gossip?
  • Do I encourage younger women to follow the Lord?
  • Do I seek to love my husband?
  • Do I seek to love my children?
  • Am I sensible?
  • Is my life pure?
  • Is my home a priority?
  • Am I kind?
  • Am I submissive to my own husband?
  • Do I bring honor to the Word of God?

1 Timothy 2:9-15 – My dress and faith

  • Do I dress modestly and discreetly?
  • Am I known for my good works or for the way I dress?
  • Do I submit to the leadership of the church?
  • Am I raising my children in godliness?
  • Do I live in a way that displays my faith and godly self-control?

1 Corinthians 11:5-16 – My submission

  • Do I dress in a way that distinguishes me as and is appropriate for a woman?
  • Do I have an attitude of submission to my husband and to the authorities in the church?

1 Corinthians 14:34-35 – My relationship to the church

  • Do I understand what my place is in the church?
  • Am I submissive to God’s Word and to the church?

I don’t know about you, but this list is very convicting for me. This list outlines several areas that I know I need to work on. I hope that this list is a blessing for you. I pray that we will be reverent, submissive women who live in faith and raise children who will do the same!
