VIRTUE : Strength,Courage,morality,standard of right,By authority of:
It is written virtue is something Jesus carried within him,and was aware that it had left him when a woman of Faith had an issue of blood sought him to be healed.
“For she said,if I may touch but his clothes,I shall be whole.And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up;and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.And Jesus,immediately knowing in himself that VIRTUE had gone out of him,turned him about in the press,and said,who touched my clothes? And his disciples said unto him,Thou seest the multitude thronging thee,and sayest thou,who touched me?”.(Mark 5:28-31).
We as Believers are given this very gift of virtue through knowledge of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.We too are able to obtain like precious Faith as Simon Peter had.
“Simon Peter,a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ,to them that have obtained like precious Faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God,and of Jesus our Lord,According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and Godliness,through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and VIRTUE”.(2 Peter 1:1-3)……(1 Thessalonians 2:12,13).
A VIRTUOUS woman is a crown(Honor) to her husband and of great price far above rubies. “A VIRTUOUS woman is a crown to her husband:but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.Who can find a VIRTUOUS woman? for her price is far above rubies”.(Proverbs 12:4……31:10)………(Proverbs 18:22).
Finally,brethren,whatsoever things are true,whatsoever things are honest,whatsoever things are just,whatsoever things are pure,whatsoever things are lovely,whatsoever things are of good report;if there be any VIRTUE,and if there be any praise,think on these things.(Philippians 4:8)
