Today is Mother’s Day. It is a special day for everyone, because no matter who you are, you had a Mother. You may not know who your Mother was. You may not have had a very good Mother, but if you are like most people, your Mother is very special to you. Your Mom was there when you fell. She was there when you cried out in fear of the darkness. She was there when you hit a home run, or when you struck out for the third time that day, and she was there when you walked across the stage as a graduate. She loved you no matter what. She loved you when you didn’t call her, when you didn’t come by to see her, and even when you forgot her on Mother’s Day. She just loved you. How do you respond to that kind of love, to that kind of grace?
Do you tell other people how great she was? Do you tell your children what a great mom you had? Do you do your best to make her proud of you, of what you have become? Not everyone’s Mom is still with us. In fact, in a class with people of our age, some of our mom’s passed away some time ago. I firmly believe that my Mother is looking down from heaven on me and my sister and brother, and she is checking up on us to make sure we are doing what she taught us to do. My guess is that she has a conversation with Jesus every once in a while telling Him what she thinks of us.
How do you respond to that kind of love and grace?
Our lesson today is about several things, we are going to finish up our discussion on our position before God, about the mercy and grace that God has shown us, but we are also going to talk about how we are to respond to our God who has loved us so much, and has shared His grace upon us.
How do you respond to that kind of love and grace? Pretty amazing isn’t it? Listen to this podcast to learn how to respond to God’s grace.
