Sermon Notes...Dear Mama

John 19:26-27 (New Living Translation) "When Jesus saw his mother standing there beside the disciple he loved, he said to her, “Dear woman, here is your son.” 27 And he said to this disciple, “Here is your mother.” And from then on this disciple took her into his home."

Introduction: In 1996 in a bloody Las Vegas street shooting, Tupac Shakur. His mother, in an unnatural act, buried her son. In 1995, Tupac released a single in honor of his mother, titled 'Dear Mama'. He recalls the relationship that they had, that turned into an instant classic.

Transition: Make no mistake about it, mother's matter. They matter for birth and life. Jesus in our text, teaches us that we ought to express that mama is appreciated, even in our own life struggles...

Exposition: How can we express appreciation for mama?

1) With Presence
 Absence in adversity is an atrocity

2) With Provision
Mother's aren't meant to be a burden but a blessing

3) With Protection
Some friends have to become family, so they'll have a heart to help when you can't

Conclusion: For mother's past, present, distant and those who aren't biological but are doing the work, we pray blessing upon and give thanks for your strength, commitment and wisdom. Amen.
