Welcome to Refinery Life Australia.

Today we continue our series titled “Strengthening Christian Marriage and Family Living.”

Today we are talking about Mothers, A Basic Need of Life.

Prayer

Father, as we approach this time of offering and sacrifice, we dare not forget the hour of our own mother’s sacrifice that we might have physical life.

Nor can we forget the hour of our beloved Saviour’s sacrifice that we might have eternal life.

May our giving be with a comparable spirit of love and sacrifice.

In Jesus name we pray.

Amen.

Ephesians 5:25 AMP

25 Husbands, love your wives [seek the highest good for her and surround her with a caring, unselfish love], just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her,

Ephesians 6:1-2 AMP

Family Relationships

6 Children, obey your parents in the Lord [that is, accept their guidance and discipline as His representatives], for this is right [for obedience teaches wisdom and self-discipline]. 

2 Honor [esteem, value as precious] your father and your mother [and be respectful to them]—this is the first commandment with a promise—

Scripture Reading

Ephesians 2:25-6:3 AMP

25 Husbands, love your wives [seek the highest good for her and surround her with a caring, unselfish love], just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, 

26 so that He might sanctify the church, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word [of God], 

27 so that [in turn] He might present the church to Himself in glorious splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy [set apart for God] and blameless. 

28 Even so husbands should and are morally obligated to love their own wives as [being in a sense] their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself. 

29 For no one ever hated his own body, but [instead] he nourishes and protects and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, 

30 because we are members (parts) of His body. 

31 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother and shall be joined [and be faithfully devoted] to his wife, and the two shall become [a]one flesh. 

32 This mystery [of two becoming one] is great; but I am speaking with reference to [the relationship of] Christ and the church. 

33 However, each man among you [without exception] is to love his wife as his very own self [with behavior worthy of respect and esteem, always seeking the best for her with an attitude of lovingkindness], and the wife [must see to it] that she respects and delights in her husband [that she notices him and prefers him and treats him with loving concern, treasuring him, honoring him, and holding him dear].

Family Relationships

6 Children, obey your parents in the Lord [that is, accept their guidance and discipline as His representatives], for this is right [for obedience teaches wisdom and self-discipline]. 

2 Honor [esteem, value as precious] your father and your mother [and be respectful to them]—this is the first commandment with a promise— 

3 so that it may be well with you, and that you may have a long life on the earth.

Introduction

The climax of God’s creative activities was the presentation of humankind.

The natural system that God selected to populate the earth was that of a union between husband and wife.

The father is essential to plant the seed in order for children to be created, but the mother is the basic unit for conceiving, developing, and giving birth to a child.

Hearts are almost universally accepting when reference is made to a mother.

Because of her unique role in producing the family, a mother has her own particular needs.

And the family and society have special needs that a mother can meet.

  1. A mother’s needs.

The role of a mother is not easy to fulfil.

Many factors outside the home influence children, so it is necessary for a mother to make certain efforts if she is to be successful in raising her children.

  1. A mother needs to have society on her mind.

A mother must be aware of the evils facing her children when they are not under her immediate care, and she must warn her children of these evils.

Care must be taken so that none of these dangers invade the intimacy of the home.

On the other hand, since children’s attitudes are forged by their mother, a mother must also be aware the good that exists in the world and install in her children a desire for this good in their lives.

B. A mother needs to have God in her heart.

A mother plagued by guilt will be a ghost in the lives of her children.

Therefore a mother owes it to her family to have a clear conscience and a soul set free by salvation through Jesus Christ.

Then she may guide her beloved children to genuine life in Him.

The most peaceful spot on earth is the path in the centre of God’s will.

The wise mother desires this reality for herself and her family.

C. A mother needs to have a husband by her side.

A mother must have the true friendship of her husband.

They must work side by side to make the home a nurturing environment for their children.

D. A mother needs to have children under her guidance.

The Bible requires that children obey and respect their parents.

A basic need of the mother is for her children to love and obey her.

A rebellious child will force a mother to an early grave.

The basic needs for successful motherhood are met by God, the yielded spirit of the mother, by the loving heart of the husband, and by the obedient mind of the child. 

2. A mother is needed.

God ordained a basic place for motherhood within the structure of our society.

We cannot do without her.

Those who have tried to do so have suffered the consequences.

  1. A mother is needed by a sick society.

Motherhood is a symbol of righteousness and concern.

When there is a degrading of this concept, society becomes sick.

When a mother exemplifies biblical standards of holiness, society is healed.

B. A mother is needed by her children.

Children should have feelings of pride about their parents.

Although no parent is perfect, a mother owes it to herself and her children to strive to maintain a proper life.

C. A mother is needed by her husband.

Her  husband needs her to assist in raising their children.

Mothers should foster a true spirit of maternal love so as to truly minister to their child and to be a source of strength to her husband.

D. A mother is needed by the church.

The local church has an awesome dependancy on mothers.

A mother learns biblical truths and shares them with her family and friends.

Her time and talent are used in the many functions of the congregation.

Her children should follow in her footsteps.

Conclusion.

God has placed a mother in the life of every person, yet some circumstances may not allow certain people to benefit from a mother’s tenderness.

But blessed is that mother who shares the truth and life of God with the children He has placed within her care.

Until next time

Stay in the Blessings
