Celebrate God's Goodness To Us Through Mothers!

Author: Pastor Joel
May 06, 2016

Sunday is Mother's Day! At Pathway, we value mothers and celebrate God's goodness to us through them. One of Scripture's most beautiful images to represent the character of God is the image of a mother having compassion on her children, and "so I will have compassion on you," declares the Lord.                                                                                                                             -- Isaiah 66:13

On Sunday, we will explore a Christmas time text. An angel comes to Mary to announce that she will give birth to Jesus Christ. Mary will be the mother of the Lord! This text is a little tender for Protestants. A former Catholic friend reminded me a couple weeks ago that he never heard a Protestant pastor preach on the specialness of Mary. Growing up that was standard fare in his Catholic upbringing. Well, that lit my fire! Christians can celebrate the honored place of Mary according to the Bible. So, let's go there this Sunday, Mother's Day, to celebrate the Mother of Our Lord. And let's do so in a distinctly Protestant way!
