The Women on Fire Ministry aims at bringing women together from all areas of life to ignite them with passion, zeal, fire, and purpose; restoring lost dreams, giftings, talents and God-given abilities.
It also empowers women to fulfill their God-given destiny in their homes, marriages, relationships, business, career and ministry.
Old Testament Example
Women were mostly in a subservient role, but a number of women are mentioned as leaders and prophets of Israel, including Miriam (Exodus 15:20), Deborah (Judges 4:4-5), Esther (Esther 4:15-17), Huldah (2 Kings 22:14)and Athaliah (2 Chronicles 22:10-12)
New Testament Example
Jesus chose only men as His twelve apostles (Mark 3:13-19), and that is sometimes cited as a reason that only men should be appointed to church leadership roles. However, Jesus sent His apostles out to spread the gospel to the world, seeking food and shelter where they could find it, facing great danger and ultimately martyrdom. This would not have been considered an appropriate role for a woman in Biblical times, just as it would not be considered appropriate today.
Jesus did have a number of women among his larger circle of disciples (Matthew 27:55-56, Mark 15:40-41, Luke 8:1-3, 23:49, John 20:14-18).
In the Early Church
A number of women held important positions in the early Christian churches (Acts 1:12-14, 18:24-26, 21:7-9, Romans 16:1-16).
Paul’s Proclamation of Equality
Although he accepted that people may have different roles in society, the apostle Paul proclaimed that all believers are equal in God’s sight:
You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. (NIV, Galatians 3:26-29)
