Motherhood as a Mission Field by Rachel Jankovic
Above is a link to a great blog entry that should be immensely encouraging to all mothers…
Here are a few excerpts:
“When you are a mother at home with your children, the church is not clamoring for monthly ministry updates. When you talk to other believers, there is not any kind of awe about what you are sacrificing for the gospel. People are not pressing you for needs you might have, how they can pray for you. It does not feel intriguing, or glamorous.”
“At the very heart of the gospel is sacrifice, and there is perhaps no occupation in the world so intrinsically sacrificial as motherhood. Motherhood is a wonderful opportunity to live the gospel.”
“Look at your children in faith, and see how many people will be ministered to by your ministering to them. How many people will your children know in their lives? How many grandchildren are represented in the faces around your table now?”
Thank you to all the mothers of CCC! You are doing valuable work for the sake of Christ in your homes!
