The word available means to be accessible, on hand, easy to obtain or free to do something. In essence, we are saying that mothers should be available to guide, nurture, care for, teach, nourish, support, direct, encourage, provide for, correct, warn, caution, celebrate and also serve God. A home where the mother is not available, many things will likely go wrong.

Another example of Abraham’s life of faith is seen in the birth of his son, Isaac. Abraham and Sarah were childless, yet God promised that Abraham would have a son (Genesis 15:4). Abraham believed the promise of God, and that faith is credited to him as righteousness (Genesis 15:6). God reiterates His promise to Abraham in Genesis 17, and his faith is rewarded in Genesis 21 with the birth of Isaac. Abraham’s faith would be tested regarding his son, Isaac. In Genesis 22, God commands Abraham to sacrifice Isaac on the top of Mount Moriah. Abraham faithfully obeyed God who was his shield (Genesis 15:1) and who had been extraordinarily gracious and good to him up to this point. As with the earlier command to leave his home and family, Abraham obeyed (Genesis 22:3).

In the message of last Sunday, the Lord directed us to the ants to learn valuable lessons of Team work, striving for competence, diligence and practice of delayed gratification. All these lessons were meant to make us wise and help us receive insights that will elevate and launch us into greatness in life. In the text, lazy or slothful people were being advised to stop their laziness which would no doubt lead to poverty and demotion in life. Instead, they should tow the path that will lead to their greatness as they learn from the ants. We see clearly in our text that slothfulness is a great enemy of elevation. What then is slothfulness? What are the consequences of being slothful? Let’s go back to our text.

Philippians 2:5-11 is one of the most important Christological passages in the New Testament. It records a vital statement about the divine nature, redemptive work, and sovereign authority of the Lord Jesus Christ. The text makes this statement about Jesus Christ in two parts: the humiliation of Christ (Phil. 2:5-8) and the exaltation of Christ (Phil. 2:9-11).
