"Love of God and Family"

...that it may always go well with you and your children after you


For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is right and just, so that the LORD will bring about for Abraham what he has promised him." Genesis 18:19

What is a home?

Is it no more than a short order restaurant, or a residential hotel, or just a place to hang your hat? Is it just a house with a big mortgage to pay off? No, a home is a family—people living, growing, learning and creating together. A little boy explained it well when he told an interviewer after his house had burned down, “We still have a home. We just don’t have a house to put it in.”

Home should be a happy experience—a haven from the problems of the world, a place of security, laughter, love, acceptance. But, as indicated by the rising divorce rate and a host of family problems, homes are too often places of tension, growing frustration and division—a tug-of-war between very unhappy people.

How can the energy and creativity of your family be harnessed for a happy home? Let’s go back to the source. The home is God’s idea—not a human invention or a cultural phenomenon. In the plan of creation God designed the home as the foundation of society, to meet the mental, spiritual, physical, emotional needs of men, women and children.

According to God’s Word, the family is a lasting relationship. The Bible states that in marriage a husband and wife become “one,” building a permanent relationship. The family is not designed for temporary convenience—to be kept together so long as it’s fun and pleasing. The family’s strength is its permanence. God designed the family as a lasting relationship in which, with His care, humans could weather the storms of life together. The home is God’s loving shelter for growing to maturity.

Although the family is a lasting relationship, it is not an automatic success. The daily parts and pieces of life just don’t automatically fall into place. Loving and living with your spouse and children takes determination and practice, plus time and imagination, sacrifice and planning, and much more.

But love and determination by themselves aren’t enough to build the relationship God intended. Centuries ago a man who had faced many family problems wrote, “Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it” ( Psalm 127:1a).. God not only designed the home, but He desires to be at the center of family life—guiding, sustaining, filling the home with His love, peace, forgiveness.

But for such a transformation to happen in your home, you must personally yield your will to God. You must confess that you, as all people, “have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). As a result you are alienated from a holy God who must punish sin (Romans 6:23). But God, in His matchless love, has provided for your need by sending His Son Jesus Christ to pay the penalty for your sins on the Cross (1 Peter 3:18).

If you have never received the risen Christ as your personal Savior, do so now. Not only the future of your family but your eternal destiny depends on your relationship to God. Why not make God the center of your life and home?

You might pray something like this, “God, I am a struggling person who often has done what’s wrong, and I know You are holy. I know that you sent your son Jesus to die for me. Thank you that he received the eternal punishment for my sins. Thank You for sending Jesus to cover my sins by dying in my place. I want You to become Lord (boss or controller) of my life and my relationships. I want to server you now. Thank you Jesus. I love you.”

And Jesus please help me treat everyone in my family the way you want me to treat them. I ask you Lord to bless everyone in my family and help me show kindness to them the way you showed kindness to me. Thank you again Jesus. Amen.

As you seek to make Jesus Christ Lord of your life and home, search the Bible daily for guidance in your family life. Pray for God’s instructions to you on how you should treat each family member. Pray that God would help you fulfill your family responsibility. He wants to help your family weave your lives into one harmonious design.


Be patient with your family

They might not know Jesus the way you do. When God gives the time you may tell them about Jesus.

Remember one of the most effective ways we tell someone about Jesus is by living a life of love like Jesus...most people will want to ask why we do this.


If the Lord opens the door...

Encourage your family to begin a time of daily prayer and Bible study. As your family shares praise and personal needs in prayer and searches God’s Word, you will be growing closer to the Lord and to each other.

Equally important, attend a Bible-believing church together, so that you may find the encouragement and fellowship of other Christians, and instruction in God’s Word.

With Christ as Lord of your family, you can have a happy home. As you daily follow Him, your life will be filled with God’s love and wisdom. Your home will be more than just a place. It will be a family—living, growing, and learning together with God.

Remember Most Important

It is NOT our job to push someone to Jesus.

It is God's own job to draw (pull) someone to Jesus. And He will draw people we love when we pray to Him and ask him to. God knows when the best time for them to come to Him is, and with your prayers, God will start to pull them to Himself.

"We have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace." Ephesians 1:7

How happy every child of grace,
Who knows his sins forgiven!
"This earth," he cries, "is not my place,
I seek my place in Heaven-
A country far from mortal sight,
Which yet by faith I see,
The land of rest, the saints' delight,
The heaven prepared for me."

O what a blessèd hope is ours!
While here on earth we stay,
We more than taste the heavenly powers,
And antedate that day.
We feel the resurrection near,
Our life in Christ concealed,
And with His glorious presence here
Our earthen vessels filled.

O would He more of heaven bestow,
And let the vessels break,
And let our ransomed spirits go
To grasp the God we seek;
In rapturous awe on Him to gaze,
Who bought the sight for me;
And shout and wonder at His grace
Through all eternity!


The Father      The Son       The Holy Ghost!

1 John 5:7

For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

Thank you Lord for showing us your truths!  

Acts 10:2 A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, who gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God always.

Jesus wants you to have his Best promises!

He will never leave you nor foresake you
He will always build you up and never tear down
