Contrary to the materialistic society in which we live, the only thing Christian mothers want and need is the assurance they have raised Christian children. You see a Christian mother is not so concerned about the things of earth, but of the things in Heaven. And next to seeing Jesus who died for our sins, moms want to see their children one day in Heaven. Christian moms want to know their children will spend eternity in Heaven.
While society may think Christian moms want to raise Christian children so they will be good, this is not the whole answer. Being an example of a Christian and living a Christian life is important. However, the most important thing is knowing our children have been saved from an eternity of unimaginable pain and suffering, for those who are not believers in Christ Jesus.
Can you imagine the joy and happiness a mother will experience when in Heaven, she will spend eternity glorifying God and singing His praises and doing it with her family and the children she brought into this world?
If you want to do one special thing for your mom on this mother’s day, spend it with her in church. Reassure her of your love for Christ and your relationship with Jesus who died on the cross for us. And if you are not a Christian, open you heart and mind to let Jesus in and accept Him as your personal Savior. This would be such a special day for mom, but more importantly, all of Heaven will be rejoicing.
I tell you, in the same way, there will be more joy in Heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people who don’t need repentance. Luke 15:7
I tell you, in the same way, there is joy in the presence of God’s angels over one sinner who repents. Luke 15:10
