Letter to my Future Husband Series: Part Four Called to Action

#biblicalwomanhood #lesleemccoy #lettertomyfuturehusband

One thing that truly intrigues me about our call as women (believers) is the instruction to be committed to good works.

Jesus died so that we can become new people who live like He lived on earth. We can read Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John to see that Jesus was committed to good works. 

He was always healing someone, feeding someone in need, or teaching the truth.

Titus chapter two verse fourteen explains that we have been redeemed from lawless deeds. As God's children we are being purified and becoming special people who are committed to good works:

"...who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works." Titus 2:14

The LORD has given us a bar to reach for. A purpose to live for. A manner to reflect Him and make His ways known.

What sets a woman of God apart?

A woman of God is instructed to adorn herself with good works rather than elaborate hairstyles and expensive clothing:

"Also, the women are to dress themselves in modest clothing, with decency and good sense, not with elaborate hairstyles, gold, pearls, or expensive apparel, but with good works, as is proper for women who affirm they worship God. (1 Timothy 2:9:10).

I look at the passages about Tabitha (Dorcas) and I am really amazed by her reputation. Her good works carried weight and had a huge impact on the community of widows (James 1:27).

Acts 9:36 In Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha, which is translated Dorcas. She was always doing good works and acts of charity.

Tabitha had made robes and clothes for the widows. When Peter came to raise her from the dead, these were the things he was shown as a testament to the kind of woman Tabitha was.
"So Peter got up and went with them. When he arrived, they led him to the room upstairs. And all the widows approached him, weeping and showing him the robes and clothes that Dorcas had made while she was with them." (Acts 9:39)
