Sermon on Women in the Bible: Do You Want to Be Like Them?

  "Do You Want to Be Like Them? Women of Faith and Service"

We draw inspiration from the lives of remarkable women in the Bible who have left an indelible mark of faith and service. As we examine the stories of the woman with the alabaster jar, Tabitha, Phoebe, and Priscilla, we are challenged to consider whether we too desire to be like them in our faith, dedication, and service to the Lord.

I. The Woman with the Alabaster Jar - "She Did What She Could" (Mark 14:3-9)

In the Gospel of Mark, we encounter a woman who demonstrated an extravagant act of love and devotion to Jesus. Despite criticism and misunderstanding from those around her, she poured costly perfume on Jesus' head. Her actions teach us the importance of sacrificial love, giving our best to the Lord, and not being deterred by the opinions of others. Are we willing to do what we can for the sake of Christ and His gospel?

II. Tabitha: Full of Good Works and Works of Charity (Acts 9:36-39)

Tabitha, also known as Dorcas, was known for her acts of kindness and generosity. She made garments for the needy widows in her community. Her life exemplifies the impact of good works and charity in the lives of others. Are we actively involved in acts of kindness and charity, reaching out to those in need in our communities?

III. Phoebe: A Helper of Many (Romans 16:1-2)

In the book of Romans, we are introduced to Phoebe, who is commended as a servant of the church and a helper of many, including the apostle Paul himself. Phoebe's service reminds us of the vital role women play in the ministry of the church. Are we willing to be helpers and servants in the work of God's kingdom, using our gifts and resources for the benefit of others?

IV. Priscilla: Hosting the Church in Their House (Romans 16:3-5)

Priscilla and her husband Aquila were tentmakers and faithful servants in the early church. They opened their home for church gatherings, demonstrating hospitality and a willingness to serve. Their example challenges us to consider how we can use our homes and resources to support the ministry of the church. Are we willing to open our homes and hearts to fellow believers and seekers?

V. Deborah: Faith and Courage (Judges 4:14)

Deborah, a prophetess and a judge in Israel, exhibited extraordinary faith and courage. When God called her to lead Israel's army against their oppressors, she obeyed without hesitation. Deborah teaches us that faith goes hand in hand with courage. As Christian women, we are called to have the same unwavering trust in God's plans and the courage to act on His call.

VI. Hannah's Prayer (1 Samuel 2:1)

Hannah's story is a testament to the power of prayer and unwavering faith. Despite years of barrenness and distress, she turned to God in prayer, pouring out her heart's deepest desires. Her faith in God's faithfulness was rewarded with the birth of her son, Samuel. Hannah reminds us of the importance of bringing our deepest concerns and desires to God in prayer, knowing that He hears and answers according to His perfect plan.

VII. Women at the Foot of the Cross (John 19:25)

The women who stood at the foot of the cross during Jesus' crucifixion displayed incredible strength and love. Amid the anguish of witnessing the crucifixion, they remained faithful, demonstrating their unwavering devotion to Christ. These women teach us that even in the darkest moments of our lives, our faith in Christ can provide strength, comfort, and hope.

Are we willing to be helpers and servants in the church? Will we open our homes to fellowship and ministry?

May we, like these faithful women, answer the call to live lives of faith, love, and service, leaving a lasting legacy of Christ's love in our communities and the world. Let us aspire to be like them in our dedication to the Lord and our commitment to serving others for His glory.
