Hi I am a lady and I want to serve the Lord. I want to study the Bible and preach and do mission trips but I have been told to do this on the side. That my career may not flourish because of my sex. I was just wanting other opinions about that.

Everyone who answered the voice of Jesus and have been saved are supposed to preach the gospel. I do not however believe in women pastors as in church. Missionaries yes. Some of the best missionaries have been women. We are to share the love of Jesus with everyone. If not in speech, then our acts or just in our everyday lives. You can surely lead Bible studies provided you are well grounded in the word. Just listen to God's voice and wait until He leads you where your supposed to be.

Welcome to Worthy.................seek Gods approval,not mans.Seek God with all your heart,especially in His Word & just let Him direct your path,,,,,whatever God has for you no man can stand in the way & wherever He leads you He makes a way.........His Will be done,in Jesus Name!!!
When we look to have an intimate relationship with our Lord that is when everything begins to happen,He reveals His Will,His Ways & His purpose to which He calls us,,,,,,,,if God is for us,who could be against us.?
God uses whomever He desires to,men,women & children....He even had a donkey to speak! Women do great things for Gods Kingdom,they always have & they always will......just remember that God is no respecter of persons......you are His child,if it makes no difference to God then it does not matter what anyone else thinks.............Glory to God! With love-in Christ,Kwik

What would be sucess to you? A good career or God using you to plant and /or water seeds? Acts 3:6 shows that there was no money, at least at that time. I heard a story once where some missionaries were way out in africa. Way out in the country. And thier jeep or whatever broke down. Short while later two tribals came hauling the exact part back to thier village and had no idea what the part was they were carrying. Jeep got fixed, missionaries went to village, gospel was preached, and people got saved. If God is for your move to preaching and mission trips God will provide you everything you need. The earth and the fullness thereof belongs to The Lord.
