Care from the Cross


Reading: John 19:17-27

"Behold, your son! ... Behold, your mother!" (Jn 19:26,27)


 

These words uttered by Jesus as He was in the flood of blood have a deep meaning. He knew that His beloved disciple John, who followed Him upto the Cross, was the person to whom He could commit His mother to be cared for till the end. He also knew that His mother would be a great comfort to John who would be grieving the death of His Master.

When Jesus spoke to His mother from the Cross, I believe, He was reflecting God's greatest concern for each family. Family is God's basic unit in creation. Family is God's eternal idea. The Church is called a family. In Heaven also we will be called a family with God as our Father, His Son as our Bridegroom, and His Spirit as our Helper!

That God is interested in the salvation of the entire family when one of its members believes on Him is seen all through the Scripture. God saved Noah with his household. God spared both Rahab and her family in judgement. At the doorstep of Zacchaeus' house Jesus declared, "Today salvation has come to this house." The Philippian jailor asked a question in singular: "What must I do to be saved?" The answer was in plural: "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ; you will be saved and your family."

This does not mean that individuals are not directly accountable to God. All souls have equal privilege and responsibility. When an individual believes on Christ, he has all the promises of God to claim as a child of God for the blessing of his entire family. He must do all that's possible to bring the entire family to the Cross. The family is his first congregation. Then God will fulfil Acts 16:31 for him.

Both the parents have equal responsibility in leading the children to Christ. In fact, the responsibility is more on fathers! "My son, hear the instruction of your father, and do not forsake the law of your mother" (Prov 1:8). Note that the father comes first! God's great commendation about Abraham was, "I have known him, in order that he may command his children and his household after him, that they keep the way of the Lord" (Gen 18:19). He was a good father at home and so God promoted him to be the father of all those who believe!

No man or woman ever had a nobler challenge or a higher privilege than

to bring up a child for God, and whenever we slight that privilege

or neglect that ministry for anything else,

we live to mourn it in heartache and grief.
