God created men and women with differences, but why should that limit what we can and should do to serve him?
In Mark 12:30, Jesus was asked which of the commandments was greatest, and most important. He responded, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength” (NIV).
What does that mean about how we approach and assume our daily roles? What does it really mean to love the Lord with your all? What does it look like for us as women, and men, desiring to follow God and serve Him? In a time when church culture limits the terms of Jesus' command to the perceived strengths of each gender, a woman trying to love the Lord beyond her heart and soul, with her strength and mind, may be thought of as crossing some line or unspoken boundary. That's not what the Scripture says.
Kat Armstrong, Bible study teacher, ministry leader, pastor's wife, and mom, presents her thoughts on this important topic in an effort to help women find their answers to this question, "What am I doing here?" Or more clearly, "Why am I allowing limitations on my pursuit of Jesus' calling?"
No More Holding Back paves the way for this important conversation with a personal challenge Kat faced while attending seminary. She unpacks four key areas of how to love God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength. The goal is for the entire body of Christ, as his image bearers, to flourish and work toward the common good of our homes, communities, and world around us.
