Mrs. Mary Nyamekye, the wife of the Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, has urged Christian women to strive to live up to the biblical standards and values of the Virtuous Woman.
Mrs. Nyamekye gave this advice when she fellowshipped with women in the Kaneshie Area of the Church at the Kaneshie Central Assembly church auditorium today.
Speaking on the topic: “Who is a Woman,” with Genesis 2:19-23, Proverbs 31, and John 4:1-30 as her main scripture references, Mrs. Nyamekye explained that God created all things for the benefit of humanity, and that is why He gave mankind dominion over all that He created.
According to her, “It was God who gave man the power to name everything He had created. This is because He created man in His own image, so He has empowered us to do what He is able to do.”
She further noted that the woman was also created to serve as a suitable helper to the man.
She said that, in order to live up to their mandate as helpers, they ought to demonstrate the exemplary qualities of the Virtuous Woman in Proverbs 31.
She noted that the virtuous woman is God-fearing and one who has a quiet spirit.
She, therefore, urged women to lead exemplary lives wherever they find themselves, especially at the workplace, saying: “You are an agent of transformation at the workplace.”
Mrs. Nyamekye further noted that a virtuous woman is generous, industrious, and prudent. She urged women to work hard to cater to the needs of their family and not to be lazy.
She also advised them to live peacefully with others and to support their husbands and ministers to excel in their God-given mandate.
Referring to the encounter between Jesus and the Samaritan Woman in John 4:1-30, Mrs. Nyamekye said that despite her predicament, Jesus was able to change her fortunes for the better.
She, therefore, assured the women of God’s abundant grace, saying that Jesus will bring hope into every hopeless situation.
The event was graced by Apostle Samuel Osei Asante (Kaneshie Area Head and Executive Council Member of the Church), Mrs. Elizabeth Asante (Wife of the Area Head), Mrs. Philomina Mireku (Women’s Ministry Director), Area Women’s Ministry Executive Committee members, and a host of others.
