This Sunday of course is Mother’s Day. I’m thinking about this because I
just got back a couple days ago from a brief trip to El Paso, Texas
where my Grandma and Grandpa live. I got to preach at their church this
past Sunday and spend some quality time with them. My Grandparents
aren't in the best of health anymore and I hadn't seen them in a long
time so it was very special for me to be with them. It was actually the
first time my Grandma had ever seen or heard me preach. And it was the
first time I ever got to personally give my Grandma flowers in advance
of Mother’s Day. So it was very special. I love them so much.
And as we said our goodbyes, for the first time I got to tell them how
thankful I am for the legacy of faith that they’ve passed down to their
family—a faith in Christ that I share, a faith that I see now especially
gives them so much comfort when nothing else can, a faith that I want
to pass on to my family and to share with our community.
Now I’m not trying to say “I’ve got the perfect family” or “If only you
were brought up like me.” Far from it. I’m a nobody. It’s just that I’m
so thankful for what Christ has done for me and I’ve seen firsthand the
blessings of being in a Christian home.
And that’s why I want to invite you this Mother’s Day to join us for
worship at Victory of the Lamb as we learn together what our gracious
God has done for us all through his Son, Jesus.
Whether you’re a
life-long believer, someone trying to work through some issues, or
someone totally skeptical about God or the church, please know that you
are welcome at Victory of the Lamb. Come worship with us. No matter what
your earthly family is like, please know that we are spiritual family
ready to welcome you and share God’s truth with you in love.
Our worship service starts at 9:30 am at Showtime Cinema in Franklin. If
you’ve got kids, bring 'em! If you'd like you’re welcome to bring them a
little early and register them for Bible Quest, our Sunday morning
kids’ ministry that takes place during the worship service. For more
