Moms Help Us Believe

Mother’s Day 2016
“Moms Help Us Believe”
John 4:39-42

Our “spiritual mother” (or father) is the one who led us to Christ or helped us grow when we were infants in Christ.
1. A Spiritual Mother Believes in Christ
2. A Spiritual Mother Brings Others  to Christ
• Telling Our Story
Sharing Our Experience
• Displaying God’s Grace
Inviting Others to Believe
3. A Spiritual Mother Births Faith in Christ
Faith must move from believing what we’ve heard about Christ to believing because we’ve met Christ.
God wants to use you to help others come to and grow in Christ.
