A Mother’s Christlike Sacrifice
By Mark Chanski, Womanly Dominion
There she sits exhausted on the edge of her bed, her face in her hands,
wondering, “Where’s the glory in this?”
She needs something...empowering to keep her going.
She needs to gain and maintain the deep conviction of the glory, honor,
and nobility of selfless service. This she finds at the foot of the cross, looking
up to One who earned for Himself “the name which is above every
name” (Philippians 2:9), by “emptying Himself, taking the form of a bond servant”
(2:7), humbling “Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even
death on a cross” (2:8). There she beholds her Savior who mopped up the
damning vomit of her own sin with the precious sponge of His perfect life
and atoning death. The love of Christ constrains and compels her.
I got this from the Seminary Wives website which I have a link to on the left.
