The Priesthood of All Believers-Mothers (Part 3)

5/8/2016

The Priesthood of Mothers

Philippians 4:12-13 I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all things through Christ Who gives me strength!

All Things Are Ministry
Philippians 4:12-13  I can do all things through Christ Who gives me strength! 

Moms Are Human Therefore Qualified
Hebrews 5:1-3  Every high priest is selected from among men and is appointed to represent them in matters related to God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. He is able to deal gently with those who are ignorant and are going astray, since he himself is subject to weakness. This is why he has to offer sacrifices for his own sins, as well as for the sins of the people. 

Motherhood is a Spiritual Service
1st Peter 4:11  Whoever speaks, let it be with God’s words. Whoever serves, (moms) do so with the strength that God supplies, so that in everything God will be glorified through Jesus Christ. To Him belong the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen!

The Priesthood of a Mother Influences Us In Our Formative Years
1st Timothy 2:9-15  Women will be saved (have their main ministry) through childrearing–if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.

Faith Is Handed Down In Families
2nd Timothy 1:5  I have been reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.

A Mother Models Submission for Her Family
Ephesians 5:22-24  Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the Head of the church: and He is the Savior of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

A Mother Wins Souls Without Words!
1 Peter 3:1-2   Wives, in the same way (the way Jesus submitted to the Father) be submissive to your husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, when they see the purity and reverence of your lives. 

A Spiritual Mother Has an Eternal Influence
Isaiah 54:1-2  Shout for joy, O barren one, you who have borne no child; Break forth into joyful shouting and cry aloud, you who have not travailed; For the sons of the desolate one will be more numerous Than the sons of the married woman,” says the LORD. “Enlarge the place of your tent; Stretch out the curtains of your dwellings, spare not; lengthen your cords And strengthen your pegs.”
