How Can a Wife Do God’s Will?
Jesus wants you to commit your words and your actions to God the Father, and to do all that you do in His name (Col. 3:17). How can a wife do this?
There is so much a woman of God, and wife, can do for God each day. To begin with, a woman can keep her home clean and neat for God to be a good example to others, as well as to her husband, always ready to serve. She can dress nicely and put herself together each day so that she will look pleasant for her husband, be a good example to her children and others, for God, as much of the time as possible. She could invite the blind or the elderly over for dinner and fulfill Luke 14:13 for God. She could plan nutritious meals for her family for God. She could plan a garage sale to raise extra money with which to do good for God. She might clean an elderly person’s home for God or bring them flowers to cheer them up. She can encourage other's in God's Ways, by calling someone she knows is down and lifting them up, being a compassionate and understanding friend, stimulating them to more love and good deeds. She can continually be a good example wherever she goes by always being kind and thoughtful to those around her, putting the needs of others before her own, for the glory of God. She can make time to study the Bible, to show herself approved, so that she might always be prepared with a good answer to those who ask her to give an account of the hope in her. She could show her husband love, for God, by doing something out of the ordinary for him. If he doesn’t notice, that’s all right because she is doing it for God and He always notices everything we do for Him. He even writes it down in a book (Rev. 20:12). He blesses us even for the little things we do for His glory in Christ’s name (Col. 3:17; Matt. 10:42). But as Paul says, this is something we must learn to do (Titus 3:14).
If we start doing good every day for God, at the end of 30 days we will be doing much better than we were the on day we started (1 Tim. 5:10). It is important to start to produce good fruit for God so He can start to bless us more (Col. 1:10). We will begin to see our personality change as we conform to godliness (1 Tim. 6:3). We are to imitate God in what we say and do, so we can be more like Jesus Christ (Eph. 5:1; 1 Peter 4:11; 1 John 3:18). This allows God to crush Satan under our feet and reveal His nature in us (Rom. 16:20; Gal. 4:19).
Thank you, Father in heaven, for making Your Way so pleasant and such a rewarding way to live (Matt. 11:28-30; John 11:26).
