    based on 10 ratings

    This sermon is a Mother’s Day message which speaks of the qualities of God that we find in our earthly mothers.

    I’m sure you’ve heard many sermons on the fatherhood of God. Many more, I suspect than on the motherhood of God. Yet we all know that God is neither a male nor a female. The apostle John tells us that God is Spirit. God is a spiritual being, neither he nor she. Therefore, I feel it’s just as more

    Contributed by Jerry Watts on Apr 2, 2007
    based on 7 ratings

    Just as surely as Gil Grissum of CSI (Las Vegas) says, "follow the evidence", so does God’s word in determining who is of the Father and who isn’t.
