Women Are Looking For . . . ?

February 20, 2017

Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give [her] will never thirst.  Indeed, the water I give [her] will become in [her] a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”  John 4:13-14

Most American women are decent. Caring. Hardworking. In many ways we are the backbone of our nation. I am quite certain we are the backbone of the Christian church. Yet I’m alarmed.  We are under attack.  And we seem to be unaware of it.

Could it be that our careers, jobs, families, material possessions, education, technology, travel, entertainment, and whatever else we could name, have kept us so busy that we are not paying attention? Could it be also that none of the things we’re involved in have filled the emptiness inside? Are we getting entangled in more and more causes–political and social, local and national–because we are looking for…what? For purpose? Meaning? Fulfillment?  Satisfaction? Happiness? Whatever it is seems to be illusive, so we try harder. Yell louder.  Demonstrate more…

The Bible warns that in the days before the return of Jesus Christ to earth there will be a unique attack on women.  We will be offered a false path that leads, not to genuine liberation, but to destruction.[1]  Jesus repeatedly warned, “Watch out that no one deceives you.”[2]

The following article reveals some of the dangerous deception being perpetrated on women today, and it is deeply disturbing to me.  I wonder if many of the women described, who are marching in the streets, are looking for an identity or a cause that’s greater than themselves. Because they want their lives to make a difference.  Which is an understandable desire. But could it be they are not looking for something, but for Someone? Someone who will love them, understand them, help them, guard and guide them.  Someone who will replace their fears with peace, satisfy their hungry souls, fill their empty hearts, and give their lives eternal significance.  Could it be, like the Samaritan woman in John 4, they are looking for Jesus, yet don’t know it? I wonder…  Just in case they are, I am committed to giving Jesus in any and every way that I can. Please pray for me. And join with me in just giving them Jesus…

But watch out!  As for you and me, dear Christian sisters, Do not be yoked together with unbelievers.  For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?…Therefore come out from them and be separate, says the Lord.[3] The enemy is trying to harness the pain, anger, emptiness and restlessness in the hearts of women in order to use it for his own evil purposes.  Don’t be deceived!
