It is unfortunate that the inequality women experience in the broader culture can be just as prevalent in the church. While we as a society may be guilty of downplaying the achievements and contributions of women in various fields, Christians can be equally guilty of underutilizing their spiritual gifts, marginalizing their perspective, and even stereotyping their lives by way of patronizing remarks on Sunday. Such behavior cripples the body of Christ.
At CrossPoint Church we want to celebrate the role women have played in God’s redemptive story and what He is doing in and through the lives of women today. So, for the first time, CrossPoint will commemorate both National Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day with a five-week sermon series titled Daughters of God.
In this message, Pastor Logan will briefly discuss Kate Kelly and the Ordain Women movement and set the stage for the rest of the series by considering whether or not God purposefully limits the role of women in His Kingdom. But before answering the question, Can Women Hold the Priesthood?, he’ll explore a more foundational question: What is the Old Testament priesthood’s function in the lives of believers today?
