Equipping Eve is a ministry for ladies who love the Lord. Equipping Eve exists to equip women with "fruits of truth" from God's Word so that they will be prepared to stand strong in an age that is ripe with deception.
Do you know Joan Broughton? Let’s travel back in time and consider this sister from the past who gave her life for Christ. Persecution might look different for most of us today, but it does still exist in various forms. What encouragement can we draw from the Word in the face of persecution?
In Acts 4:13, we are told of Peter and John that it was clear “they had been with Jesus.” Is this true of us? Is this true of those from whom we are learning? What did Jesus look like, and what implications does this have on our lives?
God has set forth for His children a myriad of promises. Perhaps one of the sweetest promises of God to us is found in John 10, where we learn that those who have been saved are safely cupped in the hand of Christ, our Savior, and He is never letting go.
Erin tends to cringe when she hears the phrase “biblical womanhood.” That’s because so many of the sermons, studies, and books with this theme seem to lead to checklists and a works-based mentality. When talking about biblical womanhood—or manhood, for that matter—we must start with a proper a foundation. Otherwise, our concept of biblical womanhood will be dangerously skewed.
Most reformed Christians have said, thought, or written something to the effect of, “Oh, I am a wretched, wicked worm…” This is because Scripture teaches the total depravity of man before he is saved. In Christ, however, we have been made a new creation, so what does total depravity mean for the Christian?
Remember “Doubting Thomas,” who insisted on seeing the resurrected Christ before believing that He was alive? When Jesus appeared to Thomas, He said to him, “Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed.” We love Christ even though we haven’t seen Him, but we can still know what He looks like by studying His marvelous attributes as found in the Bible.
Our God keeps His promises, and no doubt the greatest of these promises is found in Genesis 3:15. Get your page-turning fingers ready, ladies, because we’re about to dig into the biblical text to find out more about God’s promised Seed!
All those sacrifices…all that blood! Wow, it really must have been difficult for Old Testament believers to get saved and stay saved! Wait a minute…let’s back up and see what the Bible has to say about salvation in the Old Testament.
God is faithful. It’s easy for us to give lip service to this, because we intellectually know it to be true, but sometimes it helps to reflect on real, living examples of how God has exercised His faithfulness to His people. That’s when our Lord stops being an unreachable entity in the sky, and starts being the personal Shepherd that He is.
