Christian Women.  Who Are They?   The Bible in no way neglects the importance and influence of women and the invaluable contributions they have made. Yet, the Bible portrays a distinct difference between the godly woman and the worldly woman. In particular, godly women have played an essential role in shaping the fabric of society.   While the worldly woman is often a tool used by Satan to undermine the wholesomeness of society.   However, the world's influence on Christian women in general has made it difficult to distinguish between a Christian woman verses the worldly woman.

Godly Women vs. Worldly Women

​​There is a distinct difference between the two in how they act and react.  Note in particular Proverbs 7.

  • Their Intentions Are Different. (Prov. 7:9,12). The worldly woman is inclined to a state of suggestive compromise of her moral purity, while the godly woman is vigilant and determined not put herself in a position that would even suggest compromise.
  • Their Imagination Are Different (Prov. 7:10). The worldly woman is absorbed with her sexuality and need for significance for her own benefit. The godly woman guards her sexuality with clothing and mannerisms that does not draw lustful attention and knows the value of her significance in Christ Jesus.
  • Their Inclinations Are Different (Prov. 7:14,15), The worldly woman is pleasure oriented and yet, never satisfied.. The godly woman is oriented around the reality of God's presence and the sufficiency of His grace.
  • Their Inspiration Are Different (Prov. 7:18). The worldly woman is inspired by temporal values for gain, while the godly woman is inspired by spiritual values for giving. (1 John 5:3)
  • Their Interest Are Different (Prov. 7:12-21). The worldly woman is interested only in the immediate. The godly woman is interested in the eternal. (Heb. 11:24-26).
  • Their Investments Are Different - (Prov. 7:16,7) The worldly woman invest in self satisfaction, while the godly woman invest in God's glory (1 Cor. 10:31).

A godly woman above all else, values her submission to the indwelling Holy Spirit.  She understands that obedience does not mean enduring God's command... rather, she enjoys obeying God's will from the heart and is not ashamed of doing so (Ephesians 6:6).
