Mother's Day

Speaker: Amanda Carlton

Revelation 12:11

That we overcome by the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony

PROTECTIVE MOTHER

“By faith Moses’ parents hid him for three months after he was born because they saw he was no ordinary child and they were not afraid of the king’s edict” Hebrews 11:23.

Mother’s protect us in many ways:

-Physically: protect us from danger

-Morally: by teaching us right from wrong

-Emotionally: shield us from things they know will hurt us

-Spiritually: teach us to love and serve the Lord

INSTRUCTIVE MOTHER

This letter is from Paul, chosen by the will of God to be an apostle of Christ Jesus. I have been sent out to tell others about the life he has promised through faith in Christ Jesus. I am writing to Timothy, my dear son. May God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord give you grace, mercy, and peace. Timothy, I thank God for you—the God I serve with a clear conscience, just as my ancestors did. Night and day I constantly remember you in my prayers. I long to see you again, for I remember your tears as we parted. And I will be filled with joy when we are together again. I remember your genuine faith, for you share the faith that first filled your grandmother Lois and your mother, Eunice. And I know that same faith continues strong in you.

2 Timothy 1:1-5 NLT

The mothering heart teaches their children a few things:

-Teaches them about Jesus

They should hear about Jesus from you first.

-Teaches them the Bible

(Read to them in whatever stage they are in)

-Teach them the importance of attending church

Be the example by making it a priority and actually going.

NURTURING MOTHER

“But the child’s mother said, ‘As surely as the Lord lives and as you live, I will not leave you.’”

2 Kings 4:30

-Listen with compassion

Hear them and let them know you are a safe place

-Offer encouragement

Share guidance and wisdom

-Dig Deeper

Challenge them on their journey, help them push through

-Give them opportunity

Help them to progress in their call, give them resources and connections.

SUPPORTIVE MOTHER

“And she made a vow, saying, ‘O Lord Almighty, if you will . . . remember me, and not forget your servant but give her a son, then I will give him to the Lord for all the days of his life’” 1 Samuel 1:11.

There are three things that we can learn from Hannah.

1. God answers prayer concerning our children

2. To release our children to the Lord to use them as He sees fit.

3. To support our children in doing the Lord’s will.

LOYAL MOTHER

John 19:25

Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother.

Moms don’t give up!

Always be their home
