The Mother of All Blessings

It was motherhood that brought about the greatest suffering and the greatest joy in all of human history. It was through a mother that God the Son entered into time and space to be the firstborn of a new humanity. The Joy of Heaven passed through the birth pains of a mother’s womb. The Triune God used the suffering of a mother to make possible the suffering of the Savior. The suffering of the Savior ensured the salvation of the world. Now all creation is in the pains of childbirth awaiting its ultimate redemption. Let us honor and celebrate mothers everywhere this weekend. For in them God has written a little mini-drama of how He is writing the story of redemption. The story of a birth, a death, a rebirth, and a resurrection. Out of death comes life. Out of suffering comes joy. “Behold, what manner of love the Father has lavished on us that we should be called children of God!”
