Fields of Grace: A Biblical Response to Feminism

And Ruth the Moabitess said unto Naomi, Let me now go to the field, and glean ears of corn after him in whose sight I shall find grace...
Ruth 2:2

...and she obtained grace and favour in his sight...[literally, "she lifted up grace before his face"]
Esther 2:17

And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour [grace] with God.
Luke 1:30

A gracious woman retaineth honour...
Proverbs 11:16

We are never more powerful and Biblically feminine than when we are gracious.

In a world that is increasingly lawless, loveless and lifeless, when we live so very near the Cross, we cannot help but be, by grace, what the Lord declares us to be: "the fragrance of Christ."

The fields are "white unto harvest," and Jesus is the "Lord of the Harvest," so by the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit, let us sow seeds and water them with true grace.

And we are partakers of the eternally overflowing river of the full grace of Jesus.
John 1:16 [free translation]
