Women Discipling Women
In the local church, God’s grace flows through community; therefore, older woman must train the younger woman to live godly lives.
"Everywhere I go I meet young women who long for spiritual mothers. Some express a sense of loneliness, and yet they do not even realize that the disconnection they feel is because they do not have nurturing relationship with older women. Our postmodern age is characterized by isolation. The feminist movement made many promises, but the push for independence and autonomy has left women confused and alone. This is our opportunity. The time is ripe. Women are seeking answers. It is time for Christian women to step into this vacuum and show and tell the truth about womanhood. But where are the older women?"— Susan Hunt
1. Who are the older women?
2. Older women must have godly character.
"Slander is making a false statement or a misrepresentation about another person that defames or damages the person’s reputation."—Jerry Bridges
3. Older women must build relationships and train the younger women.
"Scripture is very clear that wisdom or folly is demonstrated by how a woman treats her home. 'The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down'" (Proverbs 14:1).—Carolyn McCulley
4. We must build this way for the sake of the Gospel.
