What would Jesus think about Mother’s Day? The brief glimpses provided in Scripture reveal that while Jesus was respectful, courteous, and concerned for His mother’s care, His priority was to do the work of His Father—and although she gave birth to Christ, even Mary was in need of salvation. In this “charcoal sketch,” Alistair Begg surveys the Bible passages that record Jesus’ interactions with His mother. These scenes remind us that, like Jesus, our duty to God must take precedence over everything else, including family loyalty.

Questions—children are full of them! While inquisitiveness is an endearing quality, it can sometimes prove challenging, especially when young ones begin to ask about matters of faith. Thankfully, Dr. Sinclair Ferguson has written a helpful book for families that makes the most of a child’s natural curiosity about God and the world He has made.

Right from the introduction, The Big Book of Questions and Answers extends a warm invitation to explore the Christian faith: “Do you have lots of questions? Sometimes teachers can tell us the answers. Sometimes others can help us.… But we have many questions that only God can answer.… God answers our questions in his special book, the Bible. The Big Book of Questions and Answers will help you to find out what his answers are.”

Dr. Ferguson approaches topics such as God as our creator, how things went wrong, Jesus as our Savior, becoming like Jesus, learning to pray, belonging to the church, and more. In each section, a guiding question prompts reading and talking time, activity time, and a concluding prayer. Memory verses also accompany each of the 77 questions, making this an approachable yet thorough introduction to God’s promises to His children.

If you’re looking for a wonderful way to engage with your own children, or if you regularly work with other children—perhaps as a Sunday school teacher or pastor—you’ll want to request your copy of The Book of Questions and Answers while it’s still available.

In God’s plan for the Christian family, all members affirm that Jesus is Lord through their submission to and love for one another. Together, husbands and wives set the tone, displaying their love for Christ in giving themselves to the privileges and responsibilities of marriage. Children in turn display their understanding of Jesus’ lordship by respecting and obeying their parents. When everyone in the family follows this biblical mandate, it makes for healthy churches and stable societies.

In this study from Colossians 3, Alistair Begg reminds us that the Gospel not only alters our standing before God, but also redefines our relationships with everyone and everything. This transformation shapes how we serve our families, enabling us to model Christ’s love for His Church to our friends and neighbors as we live out the lordship of Jesus in our homes.

What happens when we pray? Consider this encouragement from J.C. Ryle:

Do you realize that the way to show true love for someone is to pray for them? Praying for others is the best thing for our souls: it enlarges our hearts and deepens our concern for others. Praying for others is the best thing for the church: it is the fuel for spreading the gospel. Those who pray (as Moses did on the mountain) do as much as those who fight in the thick of the battle (as Joshua did). We have the opportunity to be like Christ in this. He lifts the names of his people before his father. What a privilege to be a little like our Lord Jesus! And this is a vital way that you can truly help the minister of your church.

Although these words were penned in the nineteenth century, they meet us exactly where we are here in the twenty-first century. Be refreshed as you grow deeper in your relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Read Do You Pray: A Question for Everybody by J.C. Ryle.

Excerpt taken from p. 42 of Do You Pray: A Question for Everybody by J. C. Ryle, ed. by Mary Davis (ISBN 978-1-78397-217-3) EP Books, JPL Distribution, 3741 Linden Avenue Southeast, Grand Rapids, MI 49548 (www.jplbooks.com).

I asked the Lord that I might grow
In faith and love and ev’ry grace; 
Might more of His salvation know,
And seek more earnestly His face.

‘Twas He who taught me thus to pray,
And He, I trust, has answered prayer,
But it has been in such a way
As almost drove me to despair.

I hoped that in some favored hour
At once He’d answer my request,
And, by His love’s constraining pow’r,
Subdue my sins and give me rest.

Instead of this, He made me feel
The hidden evils of my heart, 
And let the angry pow’rs of hell
Assault my soul in ev’ry part.

Yea, more with His own hand He seemed
Intent to aggravate my woe,
Crossed all the fair designs I schemed,
Humbled my heart and laid me low.

“Lord, why is this,” I trembling cried;
“Wilt Thou pursue Thy worm to death?”
“’Tis in this way,” the Lord replied,
“I answer prayer for grace and faith.”

“These inward trials I employ
From self and pride to set thee free
And break thy schemes of earthly joy
That thou may’st find thy all in Me.”

Listen to the message "Lead Us Not Into Temptation."

Paul wrote to the Colossian believers to assure them of their identity in Christ and to urge them on to maturity, lest they be drawn away from the truth. Having once been alienated from God, he explained, they were now reconciled by Christ. Jesus’ death covered every individual sin, and one day He would present His people holy and blameless to His Father. As Alistair Begg makes plain, while everyone’s heart is hostile to God, in Christ we have been radically transformed from what we once were.
