Fight For Her When Life Is A Country Song #4
Jesus raised the value of women in a man dominated culture. It’s our responsibility, as men, to fight for our wives, daughters, granddaughters, girlfriends, mothers, coworkers and all women.
Jesus recognized women as having equal worth.
The world does not determine your worth, God does.
This dear woman, a daughter of Abraham, …John 13:16
The woman was surprised, for Jews refuse to have anything to do with Samaritans. She said to Jesus, “You are a Jew, and I am a Samaritan woman. Why are you asking me for a drink?” John 4:9
God created women to be part of His purpose of redeeming the world.
Mary responded, “I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.” Luke 1:38
Many Samaritans from the village believed in Jesus because the woman had said, “He told me everything I ever did!” John 4:39
The grace of Jesus is a woman’s to accept.
Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?”
11 “No, Lord,” she said.
And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.” John 8:10-11
How To Fight For Her
…you husbands must give honor to your wives. Treat your wife with understanding as you live together. She may be weaker than you are, but she is your equal partner in God’s gift of new life. Treat her as you should so your prayers will not be hindered. 1 Pet 3:7

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. 1 Cor 13:4-7
