This Sunday at Sedona United Methodist Church we are excited to honor and celebrate Moms.
Happy Mother’s Day! Genesis 1:27 tells us “So God created humankind in his own image—In the image of God, He created them in his own image—Male and Female He created them.”
When we think of Mother’s—I believe they truly have characteristics and traits that they received directly from our creator-God—I believe God invented mother’s—I believe God thought them up—I believe God Dreamed them up—And I believe God truly created them specially for us and gave them to us as a precious and special GIFT! —Thanks be to God that He did!
Hear these beautiful words of praise based on the words of Proverbs 31:10-30 (paraphrased)—
“She is far more precious than jewels. Her family entrusts their hearts to her, and with her they will have all they need. She strives to bring good and not trouble all the days of her life. She seeks out wool and flax, she works joyfully with her hands. She is like a fleet of merchant ships, bringing food from a distance. She gets up while it is still nigh, providing food for her household. She works energetically; her arms are powerful; she doesn’t put out her lamp at night. She puts her hands to the spindle; her palms grasp the whorl. She reaches out to the needy; she stretches out her hands to the poor. . .
. . . Strength and honor are her clothing; she is confident about the future. Her mouth is full of wisdom; kindly teaching is on her tongue. She is vigilant over the activities of her household; she doesn’t eat the food of laziness. Her children bless her; her husband praises her: Many may act competently, but you surpass them all! Charm is deceptive and beauty fleeting, but a woman who belongs to the LORD is to be praised.”
Join us this week at Sedona United Methodist Church as we celebrate MOM’S and the Rev. Fred Mast shares a message straight from the heart entitled “The Heart of the Home”. Sunday mornings we enter the spirit of worship featuring meaningful and uplifting music, special times of prayer and passionate life changing messages designed to move you closer in your relationship with Jesus Christ and others.
