It’s not a question of whether or not one of the sexes can do it as well or better than the other. It’s a question of orderliness, an order determined by God himself. It’s a question of service to God and to one another that leads both Christian men and Christian women to respect God, respect his order and respect each other.
In John 9, the disciples came across a man with a burden to bear and they asked, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” “Neither ... but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life”, was Jesus’ reply. Yes, not only does our Lord work things out for the good of his people, but he also causes his saving name to be glorified through the lives of his believers – including through the challenges they both face and handle by relying on his promises!
St. Augustine, a famous ancient church father, is quoted as saying: “You made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they find rest in you.” That’s a rephrasing of Psalm 62:1, “My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him.” We’re all “spiritual”. Everybody is. God has made us that way, body and soul.
Life can get ugly; our life can get messy; sin and sinful desires are what we all battle, even the strongest of Christians; sometimes we triumph over temptation with Christ’s help; sometimes we don’t; and I don’t want to undermine the seriousness of "when we don’ts" by giving the impression that sin is not something serious in the life of God’s people because it is. But sin has been defeated by Jesus when he came to this world as God’s ambassador on our behalf.
