I am so excited to share the broadcast with you this weekend. This weekend I am celebrating my 2nd year on Blogtalk radio. The show sign up was January 27, 2013 and our first live show was February 15, 2013. The show/the ministry is about sharing the testimonies of others who will inspire you and motivate you to live a life purposed for godliness. It’s about bringing Biblical insight to issues; addressing your needs and planting the seed of Godly purpose. I just want to thank you for all your support and I want to give a shout out to all my listeners, to my social media friends, to my friends all over the world, to my family, to my husband, Pastor Melvin Smith, to Life-Line Missions Unlimited Inc. Worship Center, thank you, thank you, thank you for supporting me and praying for me as I try to do what I believe God has called me to do; GET THE WORD OUT! If this ministry has been a blessing to you call me this weekend, get in the chat room, give a shout out to Purposed 4 Godliness and let others know how God has blessed you through this ministry.
Every year the Lord gives me a theme. After I left the home-going service on Saturday, I began to think about all the wonderful things that were said about Myrtle Richmond. The Scripture that keeps ringing in my spirit is Prov. 22:1 – A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, loving favor rather than silver and gold.
Most of Proverbs is written by King Solomon, the wisest man that lived.
Solomon requested wisdom to lead God’s people. This wisdom was a gift from God. Solomon's request pleased God so much that He said, “Because you have asked this thing, and have not asked long life for yourself, nor have asked riches for yourself, nor have asked the life of your enemies, but have asked for yourself understanding to discern justice, behold, I have done according to your words; see, I have given you a wise and understanding heart, so that there has not been anyone like you before you, nor shall any like you arise after you. And I have also given you what you have not asked: both riches and honor, so that there shall not be anyone like you among the kings all your days. So if you walk in My ways, to keep My statutes and My commandments, as your father David walked, then I will lengthen your days.” (1 Kings 3; 1Chr. 1). Notice the "if".
Solomon the wisest man in the world, still had his issues. But he realized that “A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, loving favor rather than silver and gold”. He provides us with wise advice and instruction. His words also remind us to ask ourselves “do we desire a good name, or do we want satisfaction from man and things that are temporary and shallow?’ In 2015 let's pursue the habits in life that will make that a reality, let’s seek to practice habits that would contribute to a character that lead us to having a ‘good name’ before God and His people.
Are you making plans for 2015? Let’s challenge each other with specific plans and goals that we would like to accomplish in order to have or maintain a good name.
Today, I was thinking about how sometimes we are disdained by those who say they love us and desire our help.
I think the best way to help some one is to tell them of the love of Christ and share with them repentance and salvation. Jesus said the most generous thing we do is risk being hated, despised, persecuted, rejected, and thought of as narrow minded when we share the love of Christ, tell the truth and ask others to put their trust in Christ.
What is the most loving thing that we can do for someone? I think the most loving thing we can do is share the gospel of Christ. And make sure when we extend a hand that it is sanctioned by God. God shared with us His best, the gift of grace and eternal life. Can we do more than Him? I don't think so. So this Christmas, why not share the gift of the gospel. That is the most loving thing we can do.
