7 Last Words of Jesus – Word #3
Jesus said to His mother: “Woman, this is your son.”John 19:26
The Power of Honour
Women who are widows or have outlived their children, are targeted. They are often forgotten about, ridiculed, and left to fend for themselves. While the law made provisions for them (the corners of the fields were left for them to glean) they were at the bottom of the social chain. They could be subject to verbal, physical or sexual abuse. With no one to speak for them, no one to be their voice, they were susceptible to being taken advantage of. Christ understanding this, knew that his mother would fall into this category. Mary could be subject to years of abuse, and before He died, Christ secured her future. Christ went out of His way, to honor His mother, to show her the highest form of respect. She birthed Him, raised Him, taught Him, pushed Him to do His first miracle, and now He was going to die, leaving her alone. In death, Christ ministered to His mother. This moment in Christ’s life should serve as a reminder to us. Never let a moment of sorrow, or pain, of grief, keep you from ministering to this who will need Him most.
Today, intentionally forgive some who has hurt you, or is still hurting you. Shift your focus from the pain you’re feeling to God’s Healing and Redemptive Power. Always remember, forgiving is for you, it sets you free.
Corporate Prayer is at 9 AM & 9 PM
Today, pray for the salvation of your family members who don’t know Christ as their personal savior.
