This weekend is Mother’s Day and it is a special time to remember the women in our life who have blessed us!
I know that I have an amazing mum, through who her passing on of the faith to me has led me to where I am today, and for that I will always be truly thankful.
But maybe this is a time to question who it might be that you are passing your faith onto or sharing your faith with?
In a time in our world where people are searching and reaching and looking for hope more than ever before have you taken the opportunity and followed the promptings of the Holy Spirit to share about the life, forgiveness, salvation and HOPE that you have in Jesus with someone else?
Often the place that this is done is in the family unit, but depending on our relationships with those in our family, maybe this could be the hardest place to do it.
Does that mean we should stop, give up and not bother trying? I would suggest that maybe our eternity, and the eternity of those who we love matters more than that!
But always remember that people are not going to care about what you know, until they know how much you care. So following the example of Jesus, care for those people around you. Those in your family, those in your neighbourhood, your work colleagues, your friends and others. Care for them, but care for them so much that at some point you share with them the eternal hope that you have in Jesus so that they don’t have to live in a spirit of fear or timidity, and instead can know Christ and live as a son or daughter of the King.
This weekend I have asked Danielle Robinson to share with us again. Many of you might remember when she joined us last year to share, and it is great to have a mother sharing God’s Word with us on Mother’s Day.
So again, a happy and blessed Mother’s Day to all the mums, and I pray that you care enough to share the good news of Jesus with someone else this week.
