Just Like Mom Today is Mother's Day It is a day to honor our mothers. It is a day to recognize the work that mothers are doing in raising children.
Have you used the phrase? In restaurant – taste some food - “This reminds me of how mom used to make it.” Husband to his wife - “This does not taste like mom made it.” Child to dad - “That is not how mom does it.”
There is no protector like mom In the animal kingdom Fire – chicken burned to death – under the body of the hen – small chicks were still alive Cats, dogs, possum, birds Moses' mother – Exodus 2:1-3 Women fight over baby – 1 Kings 3:16-28
There is no protector like God In a similar way – God is our protector Psalm 91:1-4 1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust." 3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. 4 He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
There is no touch like mom's Small child with scrape or cut – wants mom to kiss it and make it better There is healing and kindness in their touch
There is no touch like God's Jacob wrestled with an angel Genesis 32 God touched him Changed his life When God touches your life - - - You are never the same
There is no forgiveness like mom's Mother's are always ready to forgive small children
There is no forgiveness like God's Jeremiah 31:34 No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, 'Know the Lord,' for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more." Luke 13:34 "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, but you were not willing!
Forgiveness is yours today God is willing to forgive you There are some conditions Faith in Jesus Ready to repent (change your life) Be baptized for the forgiveness of sins Ready to live a life for God
