God’s Will For Your Life

The older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior, not slanderers,
not given to much wine, teachers of good things—
that they admonish the young women to love their husbands,
to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers,
good, obedient to their own husbands,
that the word of God may not be blasphemed.
(Titus 2:3-5)

To walk through life as a woman of wisdom, knowing what God sets down in His Word as His priorities will direct your days and your choices. Titus 2:3-5 is all about the way God wants His women to live their life, the relationships He wants us to establish and improve, and the character qualities He wants us to pursue.

And what are our priorities? We are to put our energies to work in such areas as godly behavior and reverence, godly speech (which includes no gossip!), personal discipline (moderation in all things), encouraging and instructing other women, family love toward husband and children, wisdom and sensibility, homemaking, purity, goodness, and obedience to husbands.

Summed up, these 10 essentials set three lifetime and lifelong goals for you:

Goal #1: Cultivate godly conduct and behavior.
Goal #2: Cultivate family relationships that honor the Lord.
Goal #3: Cultivate godly character qualities.

These goals encompass what God has in mind for you. They are the 10 essentials for His women. They reveal His will for your life. Aren’t you glad God only gave us 10 priorities—not a hundred?

Giving an Answer for Your Hope by Jim and Elizabeth George
Giving an Answer for Your Hope

by Elizabeth George September 27, 2022

Not long after I accepted a position at the seminary where I received my own training, I attended a conference of professors from around the country. One of the speakers had a Ph.D. in religion and theology. It wasn’t long before it became apparent that, while this person knew a lot about God, he did not have a personal relationship with God through Christ. During a lunch break, I sat with him and initiated a conversation about salvation and the gospel message.

Sometimes the accounts of the faithful in the Bible can feel a bit intimidating. You may wonder if you will ever transform into a man or woman with godly influence. Maybe you feel that way when you read about the woman in Proverbs 31, or when you read about the life of Paul. Paul was Jesus’ “chosen vessel” to spread the Savior’s name “before Gentiles, kings, and the children of Israel” (Acts 9:15).

For years, our calendar was marked with school projects, sporting events, youth groups, and family meals around the table. Now we have an abundance of free time, and we want to steward it well.
