The Mystique of Motherhood #3 of 3

October 11, 2010
In the media, Super-Mom is usually a mother run ragged dragging her kids to activities seven days a week. But the real “super-mom” is a woman who draws strength from the Lord, and lives a life of faithfulness to her calling as a wife and mother. This kind of woman was exemplified in the book of Proverbs. If we had more like her, our families would be in much better shape.

Go to a supermarket and check out the magazine counter. There you will see the qualities the world thinks makes the perfect woman. They have perfect hair, perfect complexions, and probably, several imperfect husbands in a row. Well, let’s forget the fashion magazines and focus on the Bible’s “perfect woman” chapter. Here we will see what really matters when God evaluates each woman and mother.

While our culture urges women to break through the glass ceiling, only women can bear children, and thus preserve our future. That’s why motherhood is so key to a nation’s survival. The Bible exalts the place of mothers, and gives women principles by which they can fulfill their deepest longings. Today we look at motherhood as a vital component of rebuilding fractured families.

Despite counseling services, divorce marks the end of half of American marriages, leaving incalculable damage. When the family unit breaks down, culture itself breaks down. Single-parent homes face enormous obstacles. But there is a resource that can prevent marriages from shattering, and it comes to us from the finished work of Christ.

Adam and Eve had it made back in the Garden of Eden. But they tossed paradise aside when they disobeyed God. Many marriages begin happily, but quickly descend into conflict as husband and wife display the latent rebellion that has marked every human since Adam and Eve. Today we will look at how we can apply God’s solution to man’s deepest problem, and heal broken relationships.

Endangered species: some activists get very concerned about the fate of the snail darter or perhaps the spotted owl. But the real endangered species is the family. Fractured, broken, stressed, dysfunctional, all these words describe a crisis in the most basic unit of society. If the church does not act to save the family, who will?

It is one thing to have strong faith in God when the sun is shining and all is well with the world. It is quite another when storms come. Storms teach lessons that calm seas can never teach. A boat of prisoners was sailing to Rome when their vessel sank in gale force winds. Were it not for the courage of Paul, a fellow prisoner, all would have been lost. Today we look at the last chapter in an amazing story of faith.

Landlubbers will never know the terror that being caught in a storm at sea can create. The deep is about to become your grave. Paul was on a ship taking him to Rome. Being sure he would get there, he had no fear that he would die prematurely. His courage saved the crew and fellow prisoners, and once again the power of the gospel was evident.

Mature Christians know God’s will is not a flower-strewn pathway. Often, storms arise that threaten to throw us off-course. Paul was determined to go to Rome, knowing it would be a one-way trip. He would take the gospel to the highest levels of government, but while enroute, a shipwreck would slow his journey. Today: troubles on the way to see Caesar.

When the Holy Spirit knocks at the heart’s door, some people believe. Others reject outright. Still others procrastinate. Governor Felix had put Paul off until what he called “a more convenient time.” Later, King Herod Agrippa found himself under the Spirit’s conviction, but in the end, he dismissed the Apostle’s message and went on with his life.

One never knows what a day may bring forth. Locked up for two years, Paul suddenly faces a Roman King. What would he say? He was on his way to Rome, knowing he faced almost certain death there. But not before getting the gospel to the heart of the world’s dominant empire. On the way, he pled his case before Rome’s king in Israel at the time. Paul seizes the moment to make sure the gospel is understood.
