Christian Quotes About Women

when we acknowledge God's supreme role in our life ... He enables us to be women of hope

Women have no sympathy and my experience of women is almost as large as Europe.  ~ Florence Nightengale

A lady’s imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment.  ~ Jane Austen

All places where women are excluded tend downward to barbarism; but the moment she is introduced, there come in with her courtesy, cleanliness, sobriety, and order.  ~ Harriet Beecher Stowe

I thought of a passage from the book of Jeremiah 29:11-13: “‘For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord.” It irked me that too often women are made to feel guilty for seeking the next open door.  ~ Sarah Palin

…when we acknowledge God’s supreme role in our life and set our mind on Him, He enables us to be women of hope.  ~ Elizabeth George

We will never be happy until we make God the source of our fulfillment and the answer to our longings. He is the only one who should have power over our souls.  ~ Stormie Omartian

Quotes from Ministers, Missionaries & Evangelists

No doubt [women of faith in the past] were reproached for His name’s sake, and accounted mad women; but they had a faith which enabled them at that time to overcome the world, and by which they climbed up to heaven.  ~ George Whitefield

I wish we had a few more women like the woman of Samaria, willing to confess what the Lord Jesus Christ had done for their souls.  ~ D. L. Moody

Older women should teach younger women the skills and disciplines needed to have a successful home and marriage. Experienced wives and mothers will find their greatest avenue of ministry in teaching younger wives what they need to know to be effective wives, mothers, and homemakers.  ~ John MacArthur

What women rightly long for is spiritual and moral initiative from a man, not spiritual and moral domination.  ~ John Piper

The hair is the richest ornament of women. Of old, virgins used to wear it loose, except when they were in mourning.  ~ Martin Luther

To submit to anyone less than Christ is difficult in a marriage. Yet it is Christ who commands women to be submissive to their sinful, fallible husbands. In this sense Christ is the silent partner of the marriage. It is hard for a wife to submit when she disagrees with her husband. But when she knows her submission is an act of obedience to Christ and honors Christ, it is much less difficult.  ~ R. C. Sproul

Too many women have too much leisure time for their own good. They have time for criticism, gossip, faultfinding, and complaining. They have time for idle games and lay too much attention to things of the flesh. There are other women who have too little time for the enduring things of life. They are too busy flitting about doing this and that. They have great activity and much doing, but they lack time for building Christian characters. Both kinds of women — the too-idle and the too-busy need to take time for meditation and quiet repose in prayer to God. They need time to cultivate their souls that in turn they may cultivate their children’s lives.  ~ Billy Graham

I cannot tell you how much I owe to the solemn word of my good mother.  ~ Charles Spurgeon

Encouraging Quotes & Advice from the Bible for Women

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up~ Galatians 6:9

Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, 13  bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.  ~ Colossians 3:12-13

I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling; likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, 10  but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works.  ~ 1 Timothy 2:8-10

Let a widow be enrolled if she is not less than sixty years of age, having been the wife of one husband, 10 and having a reputation for good works: if she has brought up children, has shown hospitality, has washed the feet of the saints, has cared for the afflicted, and has devoted herself to every good work.  ~ 1 Timothy 5:9-10

Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.  ~ Titus 2:3-5

Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious. ~ 1 Peter 3:3-5

Unfortunately I feel no inspiration from this. Maybe I am taking some of what it says to literal. I was hoping for something empowering but all I feel is being ashamed of being a woman.

Hello Cassie,sorry that you felt this way after,reading the above quotes and even more so the infallible word of God.Would you do this -just re-read the above,but this time if you did not do so before-pray,if you did still pray again,ask the holy spirit to help you understand what you are reading and how it can empower you and make you so proud to be a woman of God that you will testify to us here on line and at your place of worship.For all who see this,please pray for Cassie and Stephanie that in Jesus name,they will be blessed as the word was intended to do and meet their need in Jesus name amen.Please keep in touch,I want to keep praying for you both and any one else like you,God bless,bye for now.

I, too, came here looking for inspiration and was disappointed by many of these quotes!

What does John Macarthur know of a woman’s “greatest avenue of ministry.” I find his and some of the other quotes on this page quite offensive!

Hmmm … I am going to semi agree with Cassie. Not at all what I was expecting :/

I do love this quote though! We ALL (women AND men) need to remember & live this…
We will never be happy until we make God the source of our fulfillment and the answer to our longings. He is the only one who should have power over our souls. ~ Stormie Omartian

& this … though MUCH harder to love this & to live it, it couldn’t be written better …

I enjoyed Omartians and Sprouls comment … We need to know more about our relationship with Christ ..our place … Responsibilities and how God truly feels about us as women.. There is so much controversy and deception about it that no wonder woman feel degraded and second fiddle to man. There is no difference after Christ came … But women are still called to a purpose in Him .

Woman was created to complete a man, not compete with him. This fallen world and religion degrades women. Jesus raised up women to be free and equal with men. He sees us all equal on an equal playing field. No colour, race or gender. The world and it’s systems and those not living one on one daily by scripture get blinded and abuse. Yes, good church going Christians can be the ugliest of the lot.
