5 Ways Jesus Treats Women

A Hunger Games generation is rising up like a nation behind a novel heroine created by a woman, starring the Oscar winning, world’s highest paid actress.

The bow is drawn, the arrow has flown.

No longer quiet, they are no longer alone.

How do we honor women?

My family encircles eight women. Over three and a half decades of love for a precious woman resulted in two priceless daughters, then three perfect granddaughters. Thankfully, I’m still blessed with two moms – one by birth, one by bliss. How do I love these four generations of women?

History’s leading man teaches me how. Jesus saves women. Jesus heals women. Jesus forgives women. Jesus redeems women. Simply put, Jesus is the greatest lover of women.

What does Jesus’ love for women look like? What would His younger sisters say? What can we learn from the idyllic Bridegroom? 

“Jesus, if you were me, how would you treat this woman right now?”

5 Ways Jesus Treats Women

~ Jesus Personalizes Women

Early in Jesus’ mission, a grieving man begged Jesus to resurrect his daughter. Though she was dead, Jesus went to the young woman. En route, one woman uncloaked His power. Jesus stopped for her. Jesus engaged one non-Jewish, Greek woman. He afforded one woman the altar of her finest perfume. His disciples caught Him talking alone with one woman. After disbanding a murderous crowd, Jesus was the last man standing with one woman. Jesus was not just pro-women, but pro-woman.

~ Jesus Affirms Women

Jesus exclaimed one woman’s exemplary faith and another woman to illustrate diligence. Defying critical men, Jesus painted one woman’s action beautiful. He guaranteed one woman’s story would last generations. Jesus did not just call women, He called them by name. Jesus stopped and stooped for women, then raised them above the mayhem, the madness, the mundane and often, the men.

Woman and Jesus

~ Jesus Listens to Women

Jesus let one woman berate Him for arriving after her brother’s death. One woman waylaid Jesus’ healing ministry…of another woman. In the mania, Jesus gave her audience to tell her whole, horrific twelve year story.

~ Jesus Defends Women

When women were property, Jesus confronted male contempt. He questioned men about bothering one woman. He defended, “Leave her alone!” Jesus is the Knight in shekinah armor.

~ Jesus Empowers Women

Jesus commissioned women as His first evangelists to tell His men He was back and never going down again. Without raising a sword or his voice, Jesus fended off a self-righteous mob hell-bent on killing a woman. After clearing the court and her unscathed, Jesus raised her to a new life leaving the defanged bedlam and defiled bed.

Woman Caught 2

How can we say we follow Jesus if we don’t love women like Jesus who proved love by His life and death? His love powers our love for the woman from whom we came, the woman to whom we vowed, the woman we were blessed to parent and the son in birth or in-law we lead.

Imagine women hearing…

     “Your faith has rescued you; Go in peace.”

Heartbreaking #MeToo will encounter wholehearted #LoveYou.

What woman will you love today personalizing, affirming, hearing, defending or empowering her like a brother treats a sister, a Bridegroom treats his bride, a King treats his princess, a heavenly Father treats His daughter?
