There are a few people in the Bible that are known, not only by their name, but also by their description. For example, we know Abraham as a “friend of GOD.” Here are a few verses that include a person’s name, and an attribute for which they are well known.
Genesis 5:22 “Enoch walked with GOD.”
Genesis 6:8 “Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.”
James 2:23 “Abraham. . .he was called the Friend of GOD.”
Numbers 12:3 “Moses was very meek, above all men which were upon the face of the earth.”
Deuteronomy 34:9 “Joshua. . .was full of the spirit of wisdom.”
Daniel 6:3 “Daniel. . .an excellent spirit was in him.”
III John 1:12 “Demetrius hath good report of all men.”
Let’s recap. We have walking with GOD, finding grace, a friend of GOD, very meek, full of wisdom, having a good report. All these (mainly Patriarchs) are men. Let’s look at the distinctive attributes of some woman.
I Samuel 25:3 “Abigail. . .she was a women of good understanding, and of a beautiful countenance.”
II John 1:1 “. . .the elect lady and her children.”
Romans 16:1 “Phebe. . .which is a servant of the church. . .she hath been a succourer [helper] of many.” succourer = someone who gives help in time of need.
Romans 16:3-4 “Priscilla (wife) and Aquilla (husband) my helpers in CHRIST JESUS, who have for my life laid down their own necks. . .”
Romans 16:6 “Mary, who bestowed much labour on us.”
This example is more of a story than a sentence, however, this woman is famous for what she did. In fact, JESUS, Himself, said that wherever this story is told she would be memorialized. Let’s read it.
Mark 14:3 – 9 [Mary]”. . .as HE sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on HIS head. . .She hath done what she could: she is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying. Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.”
So what would I want said about me? What will the LORD actually say?

Is this where I am putting my energy, emphasis, and enthusiasm?
