Friday randomness: desiring to be a Godly woman

   Over the last few years I have been asked a question by younger ladies that I have a hard time answering. “What does it mean/look like to be a Godly woman?” That seems like a pretty simple question, right? But it’s a little like trying to teach the violin. Playing the violin comes so naturally to me that I have a hard time explaining to someone else what I’m doing! The one time I tried to teach I spent a lot of time saying “watch what I’m doing – and imitate it!” Needless to say, after a few months I explained to the girls mother that they deserved to have a teacher who could actually teach! But, as I stop to think about – that is exactly what being a Christian woman should be like! It should come so naturally to me that I say, “watch what Jesus is doing – and imitate it!” Today I want to answer that question, “How can I be a Godly woman?” My words are insufficient to explain … but God’s words say it all. Here is a “To – Do” list from Thessalonians…

  • It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality” 1 Thess 4:3
  • Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands” 1 Thess 4:11
  • Let us be alert and self – controlled … putting on faith and love as a breastplate and the hope of salvation as a helmet” 1 Thess 5:6,8
  • Encourage one another and build each other up” 1 Thess 5:11
  • Live in peace with each other” 1 Thess 5:13
  • Encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with everyone” 1 Thess 5:14
  • Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always try to be kind to each other and to everyone else” 1 Thess 5:15
  • Be joyful always;pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” 1 Thess 5:16
  • Do not put out the Spirit’s fire; do not treat prophecies with contempt” 1 Thess 5:19 – 20
  • Test everything. Hold onto the good” 1 Thess 5:21
  • Avoid every kind of evil” 1 Thess 5:22
  • Stand firm and hold on to the teachings...” 2 Thess 2:15
  • Never tire of doing what is right” 2 Thess 3:13
Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.
2 Thessalonians 3:16
