THE FACT...

The fact that I am a woman does not make me a different kind of Christian, but the fact that I am a Christian does make me a different kind of woman. For I have accepted God's idea of me, and my whole life is an offering back to Him of all that I am and all that He wants me to be.

There is no male or female in Christ and although the callings are different, the relationship with our Lord is exactly the same in intensity and depth, only varying in direct proportion to our diligent seeking.

Yes i agree and the Lord has given us both roles to live out.

Great quote! Who is E.E.? BTW, do you happen to know who the most famous Christian poet was? I am creating a new website and need to know who it is. Not finding much on google.

Hi Luvvom,
E.E. is Elisabeth Elliot. I found the quote at another blog. The greatest christian poet, let me think on it and ask a few others.

E.E. has always been someone I admire, probably because of the jungle missionary service. And she has always showen strength in difficult times.
