New Life – Love
God is love and if we live through Christ love is made perfect in us!
Natural love can be beautiful thing but it can also be corrupted without God. Good things if they are put before God in our lives can become idols. God expressed a pure and selfless love when He gave His son on the cross for our sins and this is the example we are to follow. With mothers this kind of love comes naturally, it is built into their DNA. Our children belong to God first and we must love them with open hands, trusting God to be with them in their choices and to guide us in how to love them best (Philippians 1:9-11). If we are willing to submit to God in purity and truth we will learn how to love deeply from the heart (1 Peter 1:22).
