Key Scripture: Titus 2:3–5 “Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled."
On Mother’s Day, we pause to praise God for our co-laborers in Christ. We are thankful for our mothers and for all women in our church family, as they are both daughters of the King and our sisters in Christ. Our church beautifully reflects creation and the New Testament church as we fulfill God’s discipleship mission together.
All Christians share the same gospel mandate. As spiritual mothers, fathers, sisters, and brothers in God’s church family, pray for and teach one another. Pray our sisters would bring God glory as they grow in obedience to His Word as women who love God and love others (Matt 22:37–39). Pray they would pour themselves into those around them as models of Christ-like character––in respectable living, self-control, truthfulness, submission, wise management, sound teaching, purity, love, and kindness. A woman’s behavior and speech affects how others view God, His Word, and the gospel. We are thankful for ladies who uniquely bear God’s image and live as worship to Him. We are grateful for their eternal impact. May we encourage these dear ones to walk in Christ-likeness.
Questions to Consider: How am I living as a biblical brother/sister and mentor in this church family? How may I encourage my sisters in Christ to be spiritual nurturers?
- Father, thank You for your good creation—male and female. Thank you for the women in our church—teachers, prayer warriors, friends, mothers, co-laborers, disciples who develop disciples.
- I pray for faithful women to be witnesses of God’s grace in the home, church, and community. Root them deeply in sound doctrine (Col 2:6–7). Grow this church through our sisters as they spur us on to love and good deeds (Hebrews 10:24–25). May we continuously train up spiritually mature women to disciple women for Your glory.
