In this audio-devotional, Pastor Geoff provides 5 pastoral-encouragements to young mothers with small children in the home.
These 5 words of encouragement are:
1. preach truth to your heart daily.
2. prioritize communion with God deliberately.
3. proactively shepherd your kids hearts to Christ frequently.
4. embrace God's call on you & place he has you in life.
5. remember that character is formed over the long haul.
This sermon extols the design of God for mothers in the context of the home so that they would embrace His calling upon their lives to be workers at home, diligent in teaching the children, and respectful to their husbands.
Motherhood is not a hobby; it's a calling. It's the noblest of callings that God gives to women in the context of their home. God's plan for mothers is that they busy themselves in the home by diligently teaching their children the Word of God, the gospel of Christ, and the sacred writings which are able to give the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.
This sermon provides 4 privileges of motherhood.
"The High Calling of Motherhood - Intentionally Teach Your Children!"
Pastor Geoff provides another element that is in the high calling of motherhood. This calling from God calls moms to teach/instruct their children (even the nursing babies/the youngest of children) in the sacred writings that give the wisdom that lead to salvation.
Moms should deliberately teach their children even from the youngest of years the Word of God!
Pastor Geoff shows from the text in Proverbs 31:1 where King Lemuel writes that which his mother taught him. This shows the high calling of motherhood includes the intentional teaching and instructing of the children in the ways of God.
