I AM EVE: Part 7

 

 

Eve part 7

 

Each month this year, I have shared some of the lessons we modern women can learn from the character and circumstances of Eve—the first woman God created. These are simplified thoughts from my longer study of Eve as part of the With Faith Like Hers Bible study series. Here are a few thoughts to consider this month.

 

I Value Modesty

God made us naked and then declared us “very good.” Satan, however, can use the beauty of a woman’s body to encourage sin. Being modest in our dress and actions is therefore a way we women can protect ourselves and others from being used in a sinful, lustful way.

How does your concept of modesty compare with what society sees as modest? How can you encourage modesty in others?

I Trust God’s Word

When Satan argued with Eve, he misquoted what God had said, changing only one word. Whereas God had said not to eat from the tree (of knowledge of good and evil), Satan quoted God as saying not to eat from any tree. That misquotation led Eve to question what God had really said and her understanding of it.

Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. Do not add to his words, or he will rebuke you and prove you a liar (Proverbs 30:5-6, NIV).

Have you ever misquoted God? What happened when you learned that you had? What new truth did you learn?

If you would like to study the character and circumstances of Eve in greater depth, please look into I am Eve, a study in the With Faith Like Hers Bible study series, available at Amazon.com.

EVE FRONT COVER

Later this month, I will be announcing the release of my latest study in this series, I am Rahab. Imagine the lessons we might learn from the Old Testament prostitute who helped God lead His people into the Promised Land and became part of the lineage of Jesus, our Savior.

Stay tuned!
