Legacy Study:  “Lovely Fruitful Women”

But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine.  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 2:1, 3-5

“The Titus 2 mandate is simply one aspect of our great and glorious commission.  It is one way that we can be fruitful and multiply.  It is the way daughters of the covenant are to pass on the legacy of biblical womanhood.”__Hunt/Thompson

There is nothing more lovely than to see a sister-in-Christ ministering to other women.  Whether it be in the local church, here at ReformedWomen, our neighborhood, at the grocery store, mother to daughter, in social media or any other presented opportunity, it is a gift from God to women so they may minister in His name, one to another.  We grow up in Christ and “put on Christ” by our ministry in Christ.  If we listed the many areas of ministry we have as Titus 2 women, it would take us all day and perhaps longer if we are senior.  We may never know the extent or reach of our ministry but we know that whatever we do in the name of Jesus will prosper.  Those sacrificial tasks, listening ears, kind words of comfort, cards, letters, notes, calls, prayers before the Throne of Grace; rebuking and forgiving, counseling and advising, helping in everyday normal tasks, sharing the good news of Jesus Christ, sharing our testimony of His mercy and grace to us, the giving of our time, monies and hearts to others for the good of the body of Christ wherever these women may be will be blessed.  It is good to be a part of God’s Kingdom and to be a woman in it for the good of our dear sisters, our true family ordained in heaven in eternity past for eternity future.  Only what is done for Christ will last as they say…it lasts because it is a sweet offering to Christ and the heart and soul of the recipient is blessed because of it.  Whether it is a “little thing” as a kind word on Sunday morning to an exhausted mother, a smile and hug to an elderly grandmother, a quick prayer for help for those “out of the way” or a major ministry in church or parachurch, it glories God and blesses us all.  Be encouraged to reach out, as I know you do every day, and remember that it touches folks in ways that make a difference both in them, in us and in the Kingdom.  Surely He has loved us and given us a mandate to one another.  May we continue to be faithful in it for the glory of God and our good.*

Living Coram Deo

“The world is hungry.  It needs to see women who know Christ, who trust Him for their every need, who serve Him through all their relationships, and who are dedicated to passing on His praiseworthy deeds to the next generation of women.  The world does not need more empty women or more shallow relationships.  It needs to see women whose hunger and thirst is satisfied in Jesus.” __Hunt/Thompson
