Each year on Mother’s Day we take advantage of this opportunity to honor mothers. Motherhood is a magnificent calling and an awesome work! Mothers have a ministry that is a means God uses to bless the world. And it is work to be sure. Being a mother, is a full-time gig, mothers are constantly working. It is a round the clock job. The work of motherhood has no boundaries. And because of this, this calling of motherhood is not to be undertaken merely in your own strength. Rather, God supplies the Holy Spirit as a means by which mothers may be strengthened, enabled and guided to be godly mothers whose lives bear good spiritual fruit.
The Christian life is not meant to be lived in isolation. Rather, the Christian life and persevering in our faith is a team effort. If you are a Christian, you have been brought into the family of God and it is precisely in that family that you are to exercise love, sacrifice, good works and bear one another’s burdens. Together we are called together to fulfill the law of Christ, namely, to love each other as ourselves. So fulfilling the law of Christ cannot be done alone. It must be done in the context and crucible of Christian community.
