From the Pastor and First Lady’s Heart
GEMBC Family, Friends and Visitors:
One of the most important holidays of the year always take place in the month of May, and that is, Mother’s Day! Good Mothers are a precious jewel, a beautiful gem, fine gold and the best of God’s creation and treasure. Why? After the LORD God created all things and man He said, “It is not good that the man should be alone: I will make him an help meet for him.” (A helper suitable, fitting and to complement him) Genesis 2:18
Shortly after the LORD God spoke these words, He performed the first surgery after He gave Adam the first anesthesia utilized by Him.
“And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; and the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made He a woman, and brought her unto the man.” Genesis 2:21-22
From this union God identified the woman as Adam’s wife, “and Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the Mother of all living.” Genesis 3:20
His Story begins; all of God’s human offspring must come from the Mother. Even our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ came from the Mother:
“And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.” Genesis 3:15
“Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins. And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born JESUS, who is called Christ” Matthew 1:20-21, 1:16
Let’s show appreciation, gratitude and much love for our mothers this Mother’s Day and throughout the year. Without them, you and I could not enjoy life and life more abundantly on earth in Christ Jesus Our Lord!
Forever Grateful for our Mothers,
Pastor and Mrs. Rickey Jones, Sr.
