Hannah

 

"And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed to the Lord and wept in anguish. Then she made a vow and said, 'O Lord of hosts, if You will indeed look on the affliction of Your maidservant and remember me, and not forget Your maidservant, but will give Your maidservant a male child, then I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life, and no razor shall come upon his head."

Samuel 1:10-11

 

God answered Hannah's prayer and she conceived Samuel. She filled her vow to the Lord and Samuel was taken to the temple and was entrusted to the priest. Because of her obedience, Samuel became the most famous prophet in Israel's history.

 

 

Eve

 

"Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living."

Gen. 3:20 

 

Eve knew the heartache of losing a child after her son Cain killed his brother Abel. She had another son Seth. It was through Seth that the ancestry of Jesus Christ was established.
 

Mary

 

"When the wine failed, the mother of Jesus said to him, "They have no wine." And Jesus said to her, "O woman, what have you to do with me? My hour has not yet come." His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you.”

John 2:3-5

 

 

Mary was the mother of the Savior of the world. How much pressure is that? It must have been hard to have the Son of God school you “[That He] is about doing his Father’s business.” She understood why Jesus was sent to earth, and watched Him tortured and killed. She put aside her wants for Gods.

 

Rebekah

 

"And Isaac prayed to the LORD for his wife, because she was barren; and the LORD granted his prayer, and Rebekah his wife conceived. The children struggled together within her; and she said, "If it is thus, why do I live?" So she went to inquire of the LORD. And the LORD said to her, "Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples, born of you, shall be divided; the one shall be stronger than the other, the elder shall serve the younger."

Gen. 25: 19-34

 

Rebekah was the mother of Jacob and Esau, the wife of Isaac. As her children grew up, she watched the rivalry. This conflict would become a divide for generations. Rebekah was known for her hard work and hospitality to strangers as she believed that they were sent by God.

A Love that Never Fails

God is love, and he who abides in Love abides in God, and God in Him.

(1 John 4:16)

There are four kinds of love: the love of family, love of friends, sexual love and unconditional love. Unconditional love, agape love, is the one mentioned most frequently in the New Testament. It is a love given without obligation or expectation. God ‘s love is unconditional. God’s love can’t be earned or lost. He loves us simply because we are His.

If you abide in love, you abide in God. Abide means “to dwell.” To share agape love, you have to dwell in God and He in you. When you invite God’s Spirit to dwell in you, His love takes up residence in your life. You can’t shake God’s love or dislodge His Spirit from within you. The Holy Spirit gives you the ability to love others the same way God does, without condition. You may consider certain people untouchable or repulsive, but you must reach out to them with God’s love. If we love each other, God lives in us and His love has been brought to full expression through us.

The Holy Spirit gives you the power to love. God has given us His Spirit as proof that we live in Him and He in us. You are to love others in the same unrestricted way God loves you. When you love people without any conditions or exceptions, you are testimony of God’s love. The love Jesus had for us led Him to the cross. The sacrifice that Jesus made upon the cross was made for each of us, and His love endures to the edge of eternity and beyond. That’s a love that lasts.
