11 Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve; 14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. ~~1 Timothy 2:11-14 (ESV)Notice that it says, "Let a woman learn..." I may not hold a position of authority over men, but the Lord graciously allows me unrestricted access to His Word. Like Eve coveted the one tree God told her not to eat from, I could covet the one area of ministry that the Lord withholds from women.
Unlike Eve, I choose to rejoice in all that the Lord makes available to me. He is not a sexist miser seeking to repress women, but rather a generous Father Who blesses His daughters abundantly. So I will thank Him for allowing me to learn from His Word, and to watch this conference. I will look, not on the one thing He withholds in His wisdom, but on the many blessings He lavishes on me. And I will enjoy this conference!
