Learning from a Mother's Faith - A Mother's Day Message

The following are my Bible study notes based on my pastor's Mother's Day sermon.

Learning from a Mother's Faith

You are invited to watch, listen, and worship with us here.

 Our Scripture passage on this Mother's Day is Matthew 15:21-28.

1.  The struggle is real.

The woman's daughter was demon possessed.  Life is hard.  Sometimes we can do everything right and and life still hurts.  Sometimes struggles are because of choices we make.  Sometimes struggles come from circumstances which are not our fault.

2.  Life's great struggles require great faith.

This mother's great faith was persistent.
Now He was telling them a parable to show that at all times they ought to pray and not to lose heart, saying, “In a certain city there was a judge who did not fear God and did not respect man. There was a widow in that city, and she kept coming to him, saying, ‘Give me legal protection from my opponent.’ For a while he was unwilling; but afterward he said to himself, ‘Even though I do not fear God nor respect man, yet because this widow bothers me, I will give her legal protection, otherwise by continually coming she will wear me out.’” And the Lord said, “Hear what the unrighteous judge said; now, will not God bring about justice for His elect who cry to Him day and night, and will He delay long over them?  I tell you that He will bring about justice for them quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?” - Luke 18:1-8

What if the answer you are looking for is on the other side of your next prayer?

The  most important thing you can do is give your children to Jesus.

Great faith is humble.

There are two things that move the heart of God:  tears and prayers of a mother.

How many lives have been changed because Mama prayed?

I'm not sure if this song is the one my pastor was referring to in the video.  In my search, I found there are several versions of songs titled "Mama Prayed," but I landed on this one and loved it.
"Not much more than 5 foot tall, but mountains big and small crumbled all the way when Mama prayed."
Jesus doesn't promise to always heal, but He does promise that whoever calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved.

Are you someone whose mom is praying for you?  You can learn about how to have a relationship with Jesus here.  I hope you will make Him your Lord today.
