A mother’s love is undeniably gospel because it is an extension and reflection of God’s love on earth to His children.

A mother’s love goes beyond bloodlines and is holistically supportive. In John 19:26-27 while on the cross, Jesus said to His mother, “Woman, behold your son! Then He said to the disciple whom He loved, “Behold your mother!” Jesus entrusted them into each other’s care.

A mother’s love is also supportive on every level of our being - mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually, allowing us to experience God’s love in the flesh.

Church Mothers

I am blessed to attend Apostolic Temple of Jesus Christ, with a Mothers’ Board that contains some of the sweetest, most loving women elders in a church body of Christ. They immediately embraced me with genuine affection and compassion; and they support me in ministry and encourage me like one of their own. I used to sit behind Mothers’ row most every Sunday when I joined in 2012; they remind me of my maternal grandmother, who passed in 1991, whenever I am in their midst.

My Mother

In addition, I came to understand, accept, love and appreciate my biological mother, Phyllis Bynum, on a whole new level after many years of resenting her. As a teenager and young adult, I felt that she only provided for my physical needs with material things and was not the emotional, mental, or spiritual support I so desperately desired at the time.

But then a shift took place during my adult years as I grew and developed in the things of God, especially after I resigned my corporate job to pursue ministry full-time, and had to move back home due to financial challenges. Mom became an amazing source of comfort, safety, love, and provision when I needed her most.

I am so grateful to God for how He blessed us to become a mutual support of love for each other and for the deep sense of care He gave me for her well-being. I count it a joy and privilege to have served her during her later years and health challenges.

I honor my mother for the generous sacrifices she made on my behalf during her lifetime; she passed on April 2, 2021.

My mother’s love was gospel to me because it contained grace and mercy; supply for my needs; and protection and unconditional love for me. I love my mother because she first loved me.

Be blessed,

Jo Anne Meekins
