A Brave Woman

“Glorify your Son so that the Son may glorify you.” —John 17:1

Whether you’re a man or a woman ultimately tells a bigger story than your personal narrative. It’s not about you— it’s about the glory of God. He made you a woman to show His character to a fallen world. Here are some practical applications of what it means to be a brave woman molded in the image of Christ.

A brave woman submits to God’s will rather than trying to define herself by the world’s standards. She defines her identity by the Word of God, not by her feelings or by outside pressure.

A brave woman is renewed by the Holy Spirit and shows the heart of biblical womanhood, which is the fruit of the spirit (Gal. 5:22–23). She’s been marked by the meekness and humility of Christ and reflects a tender and serene heart, despite her personality.

A brave woman has her identity in Christ and isn’t consumed by the desire to prove anything to this world. She is brave because of her reverent fear of God!

Do you want to be that woman? Consider Christ!
