Women's Call To Santification

Posted on May 2, 2017 at 1:55 PM

WOMEN’S CALL TO SANTIFICATION


“Sanctify yourselves: for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you.” – Joshua 3:5.


This was Joshua’s call to the children of Israel in Biblical Times for a return to a life of virtue, and it is the same call to us today. We simply cannot do the work that God have been reserved and prepared for us women to do unless we can access the strength and confidence that comes by living a virtuous life.


In the world, today we have seen an increase in the intensity of the attacks on a women’s identity and virtue. The media, women liberation organizations and the fashion industry has all promulgated an image of what a woman should look like or be like, and has showed many misleading images of womanhood.


These images in some cases has caused some women to be distracted from who they really are, dismayed by how they look, and even enticed them to behave in ways that may be ungodly trying to live up to these images. So, if you can be dismayed, discouraged, distracted, delayed, or disqualified from being worthy to receive the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and stray away from your divinity, then the enemy has won.


Remember, you are daughters of God. You cannot be a generation of young women who are just contented to fit in with the norms of society. You must have the courage to stand out, to “arise and shine forth, that thy light may be a standard for the nations.” When you do not conform to the beauty or social standards of the world, the world would have you believe that you are not significant—that you are out of fashion and out of touch with reality. The world calls to you with the unrelenting, noisy voices to “live it up,” “try everything,” “experiment and be happy.” On the other hand, the Holy Spirit whispers to you from within and invites you to “walk in the paths of virtue,” “lay aside the false misleading images of this world,” “and cleave unto your divinity.”


Deep beauty springs from virtue. There is beauty in being chaste and morally clean. It is the kind of beauty that is unique, that you see in the eyes of all virtuous women. Such is the beauty that is earned through faith, repentance, and honoring a relation with God.


The world places so much emphasis today on physical attractiveness and would have you believe that you are to look like the elusive models seen on the cover of a magazine. Please be assured that God has wondrously created you, and would tell you that you are each uniquely beautiful. When you are a woman who is virtuous, chaste, and morally clean, your inner beauty glows in your eyes and in your face. It is true, “If you live close to God and His infinite grace, you won’t have to tell anyone that you are doing so, it will show in your face.”14 When you are worthy of the companionship of the Holy Spirit, you are confident and your inner beauty shines brightly. And so “let virtue garnish thy thoughts unceasingly; then shall thy confidence wax strong in the presence of God; and … the Holy Spirit shall be thy constant companion.”


We have read in the word of God that “the gift of the Holy Spirit … quickens all the intellectual faculties, increases, enlarges, expands and purifies all the natural passions and affections in us. … It inspires virtue, kindness, modesty, goodness, tenderness, gentleness and charity. It develops beauty of person, form and features.”


Women naturally bring with them into the world a certain virtue, a divine gift that makes them adept at instilling such qualities as faith, courage, empathy, and refinement in relationships, in cultures, and in the world. Women play a pivotal role in the enhancement of society.


Most sacred is a woman’s role in the creation of life – the woman give birth. We know that our physical bodies have a divine origin4 and that we must experience both a physical birth and a spiritual rebirth in order to reach the highest realms in God’s celestial kingdom. Thus, women play an integral part in God’s work and glory “to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man.” As grandmothers, mothers, and role models, women have always been the guardians of the wellspring of life, and should be teaching each generation that come the importance of sexual purity—of chastity before marriage and fidelity within marriage. In this way, they would be a civilizing influence in society; bringing out the best in men; they would be able to perpetuate wholesome environments in which to raise secure and healthy children.


Attitudes toward human sexuality threaten the moral authority of women on several fronts. Abortion for personal or social convenience will strike at the heart of a woman’s most sacred powers and destroys her moral authority. The same is also true of sexual immorality and of revealing dress that not only debases women but helps to reinforce the lie that a woman’s sexuality is what defines her worth. We have enough vanity among women; we need more virtue.


My plea to women and girls today is to protect and cultivate the moral force that is within you; which is your divinity. Preserve that innate virtue and the unique gifts you bring with you into the world. Your intuition is to do good and to be good, and as you follow the Holy Spirit, your moral authority and influence will grow. To the young women I say, don’t lose that moral force even before you have it in full measure. Take particular care that your language is clean, and seasoned with wisdom, not coarse; that your dress reflects modesty, not vanity; and that your conduct manifests purity, not promiscuity. Remember this, you cannot lift others to virtue on the one hand if you are entertaining vice on the other.


God is getting ready to use women, both young and older, to help in the restoration process, so we need to begin sanctifying ourselves. I pray that He finds many of us living the virtuous life.
