“As our roots, Genesis defines life as God meant for it to be. In fact, the most vital realities of your life as a woman today can be measured against the coordinates set down in Genesis.”
~~ The New Eve, by Robert Lewis
I’ve enjoyed blogging with the “On the Ascent” mountain theme for the past 4 months. God has taken me to some eye-opening and heart-fixing places in His word as I’ve delved into what He teaches through mountain experiences with His people. But it’s time for a new direction and a glimpse into what led me to launch a blog with the name “Genesis Girls”. Four years ago, God brought a book across my path — entitled, “The New Eve”, by Robert Lewis. In it, he presents this idea: “As our roots, Genesis defines life as God meant for it to be. In fact, the most vital realities of your life as a woman today can be measured against the coordinates set down in Genesis.”
If we are Genesis Girls, we are pursuing a life with God’s original intent for women in mind. The first Eve made a choice that changed the destiny of the world. It set in motion the fall of man, the bondage of sin, and the need for a Savior. Praise God that we can live as New Eves!! What does that look like today in 2013? “A New Eve takes God’s Word seriously not just at church but in the everyday walk of life. New Eves find specific and practical answers and use them to color their choices. These answers become a fixed mind-set that builds for them a unique, fulfilling femininity void of many of the excesses and regrets that mark other worldviews.”
Over the next few weeks and months, we will be exploring how to live in the “‘hood” as we take on the various roles we enjoy as women … Womanhood, Sisterhood, and Motherhood! I hope you’ll join me in the conversation!!
