What does it mean to be a woman of God?

 

The first requirement for a woman of God is that she is a believer in God’s Son, the Lord Jesus Christ (John 3:16, 36). As a believer, she is a new spiritual person, because the Holy Spirit has come to live within (2 Corinthians 5:17; 1 John 4:13). A new lifestyle will be the evidence of her new life. She will have a desire to read God’s Word and grow in her faith (2 Peter 3:18), she will communicate with her Father in prayer (John 14:13-14), and her habits and desires will conform to God’s will (Ephesians 4:17-32, 5:1-12). When she does fail in any point, she will confess to her Father and He will forgive (1 John 1:9). If she is unmarried, she will only marry a Christian man (2 Corinthians 6:14) and allow him to be the head of the home (Ephesians 5:22-24, 33), showing him respect and love. If she is unmarried, she will remain pure and guard her mind and eyes from the ungodly influences of the world.

The woman of God will participate in a Bible-believing church to grow in her faith, be baptized and receive communion, use her spiritual gifts in service, and help send the Gospel to the world (
Hebrews 10:25; Matthew 28:17-20). She will help the poor as she is able (Proverbs 31:20; also read vss.10-31). As she matures in age and faith, she will realize she is a teaching example to women of all ages (Titus 2:3-5).

Most of all, the woman of God, like the man of God, depends on her Lord for the power and grace to accomplish all these things. She realizes that, like the fruit in the illustration of the vine and the branches (
John 15:1-8
), she is merely a branch on which the Lord hangs His fruit. She exhibits the fruit of the Spirit—love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control—and knows that these are indeed His fruit, not her own. They are the product of the Holy Spirit who resides within her, and she gives Him all the glory for what He accomplishes in her.
