The Blurred Lines of Gender Identity


Messianic Daily Devotionals

“Woe to those who quarrel with their Maker, those who are nothing but potsherds among the potsherds on the ground. Does the clay say to the potter, ‘What are you making?’ Does your work say, ‘The potter has no hands’?” (Isaiah 45:9 NIV).

In the last generation, the lines between male and female have blurred. Feminism tells us there is no difference demanding equality on all fronts. The upsurge movement of the transgender quest has a different premise: That a person’s DNA should not dictate gender but the feelings of the soul. These two ideologues are at war, and they both cannot co-exist. The false light of feminism and now transgenderism has brought us into confusion.

In the beginning, God created male and female. He had no need to create two if they would function the same. The root of the controversy is rebellion against God’s plan. The Hebrew words for “masculine” and “feminine” have different meanings and roles and shed light on their functions.  Zachar, meaning “he remembered,” implies it is masculine to remember especially things that matter. N’kivah meaning, “she hoped,” implies it is feminine to hope, especially in things that matter. Before God, roles are different because  callings are different.

Work it out in Daily Life…

Take a minute today and ask God to bring resolve to your heart on this issue–not just for yourself but to be a light to others. God Creator is the Potter, and you are the clay formed in His hands. Can you rise up and ask, “Why have you made me this way?” The Great Artist has a perfect design for your beautiful life. Ask for grace to embrace every bit of it.
