Faithful Mothers

Today, we’re going to revisit Titus 2 and focus on women/mothers and their role inside the family. God has a magnificent and wonderful design for women. It will make them a blessing to the world and bring fulfillment to their life. In this lesson, we’ll examine Titus 2.4-5 in depth and discover four main points that can be derived from the text.

I. 2.4 – FAITHFUL MOTHERS: LOVE THEIR HUSBAND AND CHILDREN

    1. Young women: those who are of child bearing age.
    2. Remember “love” here is not always a love of emotion – it is a love of sacrifice.
    3. They are to love their children. (children-lovers)
      1. A mother has tremendous power and privilege – impacting the next generation in a godly way.
      2. Everyday, they’re sacrificing their life on behalf of their kids.

II. 2.5a – FAITHFUL MOTHERS: ARE SELF-CONTROLLED AND PURE:

    1. 2.5 – Self-controlled (sensible – NASB)
      1. Sound judgment, common sense, right thinking, or right priorities.
    2. 2.5 – They are pure. This describes chasteness, sexual faithfulness.
      1. It begins on the inside. See 1 Peter 3.3-4 – the adornment of the heart.
      2. 1 Timothy 2.9 – with “modesty” and “self control.”

III. 2.5b – FAITHFUL MOTHERS: ARE WORKERS AT HOME:

    1. 2.5 – Greek: “Work” and “House”
      1. The sphere of a woman’s life is in her home. It’s her domain.
      2. She is all about the betterment of home and family.
    2. It’s sad that this point is controversial in our changing world.
      1. Heart of feminist agenda is to change this. One feminist writer has called being a housewife as an “illegitimate profession.”
      2. But yet, it’s not about chauvinism that says a woman’s place is in the home.

IV. 2.5c – FAITHFUL MOTHERS: ARE KIND AND SUBJECT TO THEIR HUSBANDS:

    1. 2.5 – they are gentle, tenderhearted, merciful, and thoughtful.
    2. 2.5 – subject to husbands -reminds us of Paul’s teaching in Ephesians 5.22. She submits as God has designed the order of the family.

CONCLUSION:

    1. I hope we can see the essentiality of faithful mothers. Truly, a family will not be what it needs to be without her dedicated love and service.
    2. Have you been saved?
