It’s Mother’s Day May 10, 2020 and our Bible says: “The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed” Titus 2:3-5 KJV.
One of the things about Mothers in Christ (i.e. saved according to Acts 2:38 and Holy) is that they need to remember the word of God in their life and that of others…especially those that look up to them or who they can “mentor.” But in order to honestly do so and in holiness, they need to make sure their life is an example to others and in accordance with the word of God.
Mothers who became mothers before they got saved (according to Acts 2:38) will always be mothers. But there is no need to “reminisce” about the past process of how they became mothers if that process was out of “wed-lock” or in sin. When I see such expressions off-line or online, it often occurs to me that they have not let go of the past sin and sinful relationship that led to the child or children being born.
Saved or not, it’s never God’s will for anyone or any mother to become a mother by fornication or adultery, and such alike. The past is the past (i.e. sin) in many life and should be seen and understood as such. God often give such mothers a second, third, forth, fifth chance to “fix” their life and stay away from the sin of fornication and adultery, and such alike, that will produce a child or children from sin. God is holy. So a mother who is saved and in Church must also be holy (see 1 Peter 1:15-16 KJV).
There is no need for condemnation of mothers who became mothers from sin or the wrong kind of relationship before they got saved. But there is need to admonish mothers in Christ (i.e. saved and in Church) to let go of the past and look to Jesus in the holy manner in which they are expected to do so. And not to hold on to the past sin as if that made their life better.
Sin is no joke and does not make someone better even if that produce a child that someone desires a lot or is desperate for. Too many in Christ often forget that. But God expects them to move on and look unto him who has changed their life for the absolute better – not the worst or for more sin to reenact the past. They need to remember Hebrews 12:2 and 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 KJV.
