Born of a Woman

Our Savior Jesus was “born of a woman,” a fact that makes motherhood an incredible significant reality. Therefore, Mother’s Day should not be celebrated in a superficial or trite way, but rather as an act of worship. This message explores the deeper meaning of motherhood and womanhood.


Galatians 4:1-7 I mean that the heir, as long as he is a child, is no different from a slave, though he is the owner of everything, 2 but he is under guardians and managers until the date set by his father. 3 In the same way we also, when we were children, were enslaved to the elementary principles of the world. 4 But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. 6 And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” 7 So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.
