Re post from two weeks ago.
Something for Mother’s Day. From some time ago.
So there I was, searching for a song to sing Sunday for Mother’s Day. There just are not a lot of songs that people are familiar with about Mothers for the sake of Mother’s Day. In a moment of desperation I wrote one. It was written for a compilation of my mother, my Grandmother, and my Aunt Vera. These are the primary group of women who filled the role of “mother” in my growing up. That role of “Mother” also, and often includes many different women for different people. In this “new age” Mom can be Dad. For some it may be the mom of a best friend where they spent a lot of time, for some a relative or mentor next door or at school. In the “new age” “mom’s role has been reshaped by care providers, counselors, mentors, relatives, neighbors and many others. In many ways this is a large change, because the role of Mother has always been a most important task to our created order. In a country of single parents and restructured lifestyles, “mom” can be many different people.
This song, though, is about a central characteristic of what a Mom is to me, that care person who holds concern for you so deeply that prayer becomes the gift and the measure. Enjoy, and may this lyric be meaningful to you, as it is to me.
Click on the ‘play’ arrow and the song will load. (If song does not appear click on the link to the original post on the right, or the link at the bottom of the page.

THE COROLLARY OF REJECTION BY STEVE FINNELL
The corollary of rejecting positive commands always results in negative outcomes.
EXAMPLE: If you are commanded to eat food and drink water so you may stay alive; the inference is if you do not eat and drink you will die.
THE COROLLARIES OF SALVATION!
Acts 16:30-31 and after he brought them out, he said. “Sirs, what must I do to be saved ?” 31 They said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.
The positive command: Believe in the Lord Jesus to be saved.
The corollary: If you do not believe you will remain lost.
Matthew 10:22 You will be hated by all because of My name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved.
The positive statement: Endure to the end to be saved.
The corollary: Those who do not endure will be lost.
Mark 16:16 ….and has been baptized shall be saved…..
The positive statement: Has been baptized shall be saved.
The corollary: Those who have not been baptized will not be saved.
John 10:9 I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.
The positive statement: Jesus said enter through Him and you will be saved.
The corollary: If you do not enter through Jesus you will be lost.
Acts 2:21 ‘And it shall be that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’
The positive statement: Everyone who calls on the Lord will be saved.
The corollary: If you do not call on the Lord you will not be saved.
Romans 10:9 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead. you will be saved;
The positive statement: Confess Jesus as Lord and believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus and you will be saved.
The corollary: Fail to confess and believe and you will be lost.
Acts 2:38 Peter said to them, “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
The positive statement: Repent and be baptized and your sins will be forgiven and you will receive the gift the the Holy Spirit.
The corollary: Reject baptism and fail to repent; and your sins will not be forgiven and you will not receive the indwelling gift of the Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 5:1-5…..I have decided to deliver such a one to Satan, for the destruction of his flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
The positive statement: If the church disciplines immoral church members and they repent they will be saved.
The corollary: If the church fails to discipline immoral church members and they fail to repent they will be lost.
Act 3:19 Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord;
The positive statement: If you repent of your unbelief and sin, and turn toward God your sins will be wiped away.
The corollary: If you do not repent your sins will remain on your record.
2 Thessalonians 2:10 and with all the deception of the wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved.
The negative statement: Some men will not be saved because they did not love the truth.
The corollary: If you love the truth you will be saved.
1 Peter 3:20-21…safely through water. 21 Corresponding to that, baptism now saves you—not the removal of dirt from the flesh, but an appeal to God for a good conscience—through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,
The positive state: Baptism saves you because of your appeal to God.
The corollary: If you do not appeal to God through water baptism, then, baptism cannot save You.
