True Mother! By Pastor Faith Oyedepo

TOPIC: True Mother!

Dear Reader,

You are welcome to this wonderful time of refreshing. All through this month, we shall be looking at what God’s Word says about mothers in the family. What joy and pleasantness they bring to the family.

Today, I will like to start this teaching by asking: WHO IS A TRUE MOTHER?

I always tell people that thieves have mothers, but they did not do a good job of caring for their children at the right time. I once read an inscription which says: “It is better to train a child than to repair an adult!” Children are like fresh fish: you can bend them any way but adults are like dry fish; any attempt to bend them will break them.

A wise man once said that the greatest factory where the most important products in the world are being made is the family. This is because that is where children are raised. Who, then, is a real mother, and what must she offer? From the story of creation, the Bible helps us to understand that after creating the woman, God rested. In other words, God was so satisfied after creating the woman that He ended His work. He was so convinced that He had put a seal of perfection on all His creation after she was made. Your presence as a woman therefore, whether as a mother, mother-to-be or a mother-in-law, should bring rest to the people around you.

A True Mother Offers Comfort: This is a major characteristic all mothers must possess. Even God, in His Word, reveals this when He said: As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you (Isaiah 66:13). A mother’s soothing touch and presence are meant to bring comfort, encouragement, relief, joy, rest, help and love to her family.

In some families, you can’t find rest because the mother is the chief perpetrator of discord. She is always nagging! Mothers are meant to be a peacemaker. The Bible talks about a mother-in-Israel, who saved a city by her wisdom and brought peace to the land (2 Samuel 20:19). You, too, can bring peace, rest and comfort to your family, place of work and community.

A True Mother is a Solution Provider: A real mother is a blessing and not a burden to her family. At the wedding in Cana, in John 2:5, Mary the mother of Jesus showed the servants, who lacked enough wine for the wedding the solution. She said: “Whatsoever he (Christ) said unto you, do it.”

Someone once said, “Men are what their mothers make them.” Another person said about Martin Luther (initiator of the reformation), “Behind the monk who shook the world was the influence of a mother.”

A child’s first TEACHER is his mother. There is a special link between a mother and the child she carried in her womb and breast-fed at birth. This link gives the mother a unique position and tie with the child, which fathers don’t have. This can be used as a point of contact to pray for the development of your child. Susannah Wesley, mother of the well-known Methodist preacher John Wesley, spent one hour each day praying for her 17 children. She took each child aside for a full hour every week to discuss spiritual matters. No investment made over your child’s life is wasted. Your children of today are the leaders of tomorrow. Abraham Lincoln, one time President of the USA said, “All that I am, I owe to my angel mother.”

There is an adage that says “CHARITY begins at home.” “Charity” simply means love; a real mother will do well to initiate it in her family –if it is lacking. Stretch out your heart spiritually and pray for others. Don’t let your prayers and life focus only on ‘me, myself and I.’ Stretch out your hand physically and give to others. Always look for an opportunity to be a blessing to others, because giving is living. Give to the needy and not just to your friends. Feed the hungry and your children will never be hungry. Remember, whenever you give to the needy, you are doing it for God and He will surely repay you (Proverbs 19:17).

However, until Christ becomes the Lord of your life, He cannot in anyway give you all the grace it takes to be a real and true mother. Therefore, if Jesus is not yet your Lord, please say this prayer:

“Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me of my sins and cleanse me with Your Blood. Deliver me from sin and satan to serve the living God. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.”

Congratulations! You are now born again! All-round rest and peace are guaranteed you, in Jesus’ Name. Call or write, and share your testimonies with me through contact@faithoyedepo.org; OR 07026385437 and 08141320204.
