The Amazing Mom!

May 12, 2019 • Lead Pastor Tim Moen

It was 1914 when President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed Mother’s Day a national holiday to be held on the second Sunday of May. This day was set aside to honor the ladies in our families who have taken on the task of motherhood. An honor greatly deserved! 2 Timothy 1:5 “I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you as well.” Luke 1:26-35 “n the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, 27 to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. And the virgin's name was Mary. 28 And he came to her and said, “Greetings, O favored one, the Lord is with you!” 29 But she was greatly troubled at the saying, and tried to discern what sort of greeting this might be. 30 And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. 31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.’ 34 And Mary said to the angel, ‘How will this be, since I am a virgin?’ 35 And the angel answered her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy—the Son of God.” The Power of SPIRIT-Mom In Romans 16:13... Paul is sending his personal greeting to his friends in Rome. He says, effectively, “Say hi to Rufus...and to his mother who was a mother to me.” Mark 15:21 “And they compelled a passerby, Simon of Cyrene, who was coming in from the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to carry his cross.” Three Ways to Thrive At Being a Spiritual Mother 1️⃣ Be Lead By the Holy Spirit God will bring people into your life that He wants you to mentor. • Let Him lead it. • Be available. • It will happen naturally. 2️⃣ Love Like A Mother Loves Whether she is a... • biological, • foster, • step, • or adoptive mom All mothers have offered a glimpse into the “love chapter” in the Bible... 1 Corinthians 13:4-6 says, “Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." This portrait of... Perfect Love... Can be seen through these imperfect ladies in the things that they do EVERY DAY! From... • Their simple acts • Their unrelenting patience • Their profound endurance Mothers stand as an example of the impact of love. 3️⃣ Believe In Them There is a powerful dynamic that takes place when someone believes in us. • Encourage them • Call out their strengths • Shoot straight with them • Spend Time with them • Give them responsibility

John 14:16-18 16 “ And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, 17 even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you. 18 “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. John 14:26 “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.” John 15:26 “But when the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness about me.” John 16:7-15 7 “Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. 8 And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: 9 concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; 10 concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no longer; 11 concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged. 12 “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. 14 He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. 15 All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you. The HOLY SPIRIT Helps us by Convicting Us Of Sin John 16:8 “And when he comes (that is the Holy Spirit), he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment.” This world is full of sin! Everyone of us were born sinners! Romans 3:23 “For ALL have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God!” The HOLY SPIRIT Helps Us To Grow Up Spiritually 1 Peter 1:3 “His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence.” The HOLY SPIRIT Is Our Teacher John 14:26 “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.” James 1:5 “ If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. Job 28:17-19 (NLT) 17 “Wisdom is more valuable than gold and crystal. It cannot be purchased with jewels mounted in fine gold. 18 Coral and jasper are worthless in trying to get it. The price of wisdom is far above rubies. 19 Precious peridot from Ethiopia cannot be exchanged for it. It’s worth more than the purest gold. The HOLY SPIRIT Is Our COMPANION! John 14:18 Jesus said, “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.” Also reference: Deuteronomy 31:6 and Hebrews 13:5 John 14:16 “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever.” The HOLY SPIRIT... Helps us in our weakness! Romans 8:26-27 26 “Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. 27 And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.” The Holy Spirit... Will Give Us Daily Strength! Ephesians 3:16 “That according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in your inner being.”

John 14:16-17 16 “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, 17 even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.” John 14:17 "You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you." John 14:25 "I have spoken to you while I am with you." John 14:26 "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.” John 15:26 "When the Counselor comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness to me." John 16:13 “When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.” 1 Corinthians 2:10-12 “These things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. For who knows a person's thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God.” John 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made. Romans 8:9-11 “You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness. If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.” The Holy Spirit Had A Role In Creation Genesis 1:1-2 1 "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form1 and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.” The Holy Spirit Had A Role In Salvation John 3:5 “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 12:3 “No one can say ‘Jesus is Lord” except in the Holy Spirit.” The Holy Spirit Has A Role In Sanctification Romans 8:13 “For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.” 2 Thessalonians 2:13 “But we ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers beloved by the Lord, because God chose you as the first fruits to be saved, through sanctification ( by the Spirit ) and belief in the truth.” Romans 8:5-8 “For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God's law; indeed, it cannot. Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ (that is Holy Spirit) does not belong to him. 2 Corinthians 13:14 “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.”
