How do the roles of men and women differ?
Thanks very much for your question.
A woman's role according to the Bible is the same as that of a man's role in all of the fundamental aspects of life in Christ. We are to serve one another in love. Although a woman's focus is on the nurture and development of the family the man is to take on the role of headship or leadership. This is not domination. Husbands are to love their wives as Christ loved the church and gave himself for her. This leadership model is one of service and sacrifice based on love and not on self-serving authoritarianism. Until the Lord returns to establish his father's kingdom, women who are followers of Christ must acknowledge the leadership of their husbands and of their brethren within the public functions of the church.
