Mother’s Day 2018

“All that I am or ever hope to be I owe to my angel mother.”

“I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.”

“No man is poor who has a Godly Mother.”
Abraham Lincoln

“The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.” Theodore Hesburgh

“Only God Himself fully appreciates the influence of a Christian mother in the molding of character in her children.”
Billy Graham

“My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.”
George Washington

It’s no wonder we have a day to honor mothers! These are just a few quotes from famous people giving tribute to the influence of their mothers.

Being a Mom is a huge responsibility. The work is demanding and nonstop, specially in the early years. Most of the work is done behind the scenes and without applause, recognition or appreciation. Like a long term investment, the rewards often come later in life, after much sacrifice.

I’ve been privileged to know some Godly women in my lifetime and I’d like to say thanks to all our mothers. Willetta and I both had Godly mothers who lived out their faith and left their mark on their husbands, children and grandchildren. Our families continue to enjoy blessings today because of their faithful Christian encouragement, influence and prayers.

“Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:” Proverbs 31:28

“Honor your father and mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.”
Exodus 20:12

If you are a mother, my prayer “is that you feel loved, blessed, affirmed and appreciated today.”
In Jesus Name amen!

Forgiveness

CS Lewis: “To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable, because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.”
We Need Forgiveness That Only God Can Give.
 
Last Sunday I preached on forgiveness.
 
Forgiveness is a big subject. We need God’s forgiveness and we need to give and receive human forgiveness. When we refuse to forgive others, it shuts down God’s activity in our lives.
The problem is that we are guilty, our sin has separated us from a loving but holy God who hates sin. We are born needing God’s forgiveness. That’s why God sent His Son into the world, that our broken relationship might be restored.
 
Pride is not being willing to ask for forgiveness. Pride keeps us from forgiving others and whenever possible seeking restoration.
 
Healthy families must actively work to stay healthy. Healthy churches must actively work to stay healthy. When unforgiveness shuts down communication it opens the door to the devil and to further his destructive work.
 
The most important aspect of forgiveness is our own need for God to restore our relationship with Him that was broken by our sin. We find the grace to forgive others out of the undeservedgrace demonstrated in Jesus Christ.
 
Remember:
“Unforgiveness is like drinking poison yourself and waiting for the other person to die.”
Marianne Williamson

Prayer Matters

When someone comes to faith in Christ, they should be instructed and encouraged to read their Bible daily, and find a Bible believing church where Christ is honored and they can participate in regular worship.

Last but not least is to establish a regular time of prayer, where you bring your requests to God, and more importantly take time to listen to God.
 
God speaks to us primarily through His Word, so reading His Word and prayer naturally go together. Scripture prompts our praying as we read the Bible and God brings to our mind, actions we need to take, commands we need to obey or people who need God.
 
 

The problem is, it’s easy to neglect the basics, because they are, well so basic!  Then we can start to wonder why we aren’t seeing more of God’s activity in our lives.

So, for the next week, let’s try praying like it matters. Let’s be people of faith  and take God at His Word.

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask Him!”  Matt. 7:7-11   

 

Try it! Believe it!

 

Blessings,

Pastor Lynn
