Giving encouragement and practical guidance for modern women to implement the principles of Titus 2 in today's church. I found this a very exciting book, if more women took this seriously, we could revolutionise the church and begin to meet needs which currently are being overlooked.

Spiritual Mothering - LifeWay

This can only lead to a stronger church for us and our children to grow up in. And countless women of faith throughout the world today are the embodiment of these and other virtues that equip them to nurture younger women. But they don't know how to do it. The eighteenth century poet and historian, Matthew Arnold, said: "If ever the world sees a time when women shall come together purely and simply for the benefit and good of mankind, it will be a power such as the world has never seen.

But the problem is that women will never come together purely and simply for the benefit and good of others because of the self-centeredness of our sin nature. The what's-in-it-for-me mentality forbids such selflessness. However, Christian women, because of the power of grace, can overcome their self-centeredness. Christian women can manifest the other-centered virtues that characterize spiritual mothering. In fact, I would restate Matthew Arnold in this way: If ever the world sees a time when Christian women shall come together purely and simply to encourage and equip other women to live for God's glory, it will be a power such as the world has never seen.

These women believe God's Word is the only infallible rule for faith and practice, and they are committed to living out God's truth in the daily occurrences of their lives. These women believe in and live by prayer. Their social consciences have been shaped by God's truth, and they are committed to making a difference for Jesus in this generation. They believe that the church is the bride of Christ and have committed themselves to serve him through their local fellowships. These women stand in stark contrast to the image of womanhood that is being flaunted today.

As I observe these women, I wonder if perhaps we are on the verge of seeing their power unleashed — the power of grace in the lives of godly women influencing families, churches, communities, our nation, and the world — influencing not with clenched fists, but with open arms.

I believe with all my heart that there is the potential for a revival of faith and virtue among women. If Christian women begin to fathom the power of our God-given capacity, develop these God-honoring characteristics, and nurture younger women, perhaps we will see the fruit of righteousness flourish in women in our decade. Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine.

They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.

Spiritual Mothering: The Titus 2 Model For Women Mentoring Women

Titus —5. Jesus tells us that those who love him will keep his commandments. What he commands us to do, he enables us to do. Join me as we explore how women of faith are to obey this command. Read Matthew If you have trusted the sacrificial death of Jesus in your place, praise him for your salvation. If you have not, I urge you to cast yourself on his mercy and trust in him alone for salvation. Read Isaiah —16a. Thank God for the compassion he has shown to you and for the security of knowing that you are engraved on the palms of his hands.

Read Isaiah —14a.

Thank God for his comfort. Pray that your heart will rejoice in him and that you will flourish spiritually. Longing for a spiritual mother, I found Susan Hunt discipling me from these pages and stirring my heart to pour out to others what she had poured into me. I followed her example set forth in this book as I began to understand the importance of discipleship in the Christian life.

This is a subject she has been passionate about and has modeled for many years. Susan has been an older woman in my life, and her example has encouraged me to embrace the calling of pouring my life into women of the next generation. No message could be more relevant, more needed, more rewarding, or more Christ-honoring for Christian women of all ages. I was poured into very consistently for four years when I was a university student through a campus organization, which laid the foundation for my spiritual life and ministry.

How I would have loved for older women in the church to disciple me with that same intentionality and passion! Spiritual Mothering enters into the void with hope, practical teaching, and rich biblical encouragement for women of all ages to be nurtured in life-on-life relationships for the sake of the gospel.

This commitment shines through the pages of Spiritual Mothering as Susan helps another generation fulfill this gospel mandate. This book is a gift to the church, filled with tender wisdom that flows from a life in fellowship with God and others. Spiritual Mothering will encourage and challenge you to grow in your relationship with the Lord so that you give yourself to the next generation.

Through this book, she spiritually mothered me and many of my seminary friends from afar. In these days when the world tells women to follow their hearts, here we have a clarion call to follow Jesus. One of my greatest joys has been witnessing the cultivation of a culture that encourages gospel friendships between older and younger woman to flourish. These truths have yielded not just healthy women, but more importantly, healthy churches. After years of ministry, I am more convinced that this book should be read by every woman seeking to invest in other women.

Susan Hunt wisely unpacks Titus 2 with theological precision, practical application, and faithful encouragement. This book is a classic.

The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language gives the following definitions: mother: a female that has borne an offspring. Based on this definition, my working definition for the spiritual mothering relationship is this: When a woman possessing faith and spiritual maturity enters into a nurturing relationship with a younger woman in order to encourage and equip her to live for God's glory.

Our Model for This Relationship Though powerful examples, Elizabeth and Mary are not the ultimate reference point for spiritual mothering.

Another dimension of this nurturing relationship is described by the prophet Isaiah: Can a woman forget her nursing child, In this passage, God encourages believers not to lose hope in the midst of difficulties and gives us a message of comfort. And then in the New Testament we have the piercing pathos of the words of Jesus as he looked over Jerusalem: O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it!

When Ruth's baby was born, the Israelite women said to Naomi, Blessed be the LORD, who has not left you this day without a redeemer, and may his name be renowned in Israel! Ruth —15 Indeed, this son did become famous throughout Israel. Our Need for Mothering Countless women today long to be nurtured. We have clearly been given the model for spiritual mothering. The command is just as clear: Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine.
