This weeks message focus is on the instruction from scripture that we are to teach our children and grandchildren the things of God. We will also look at the example of the dysfunctional home of Ely. There are many examples of sin and rebellion in the homes of people of faith in the Bible. They are included to warn us as parents that we cannot be lazy when it comes to our responsibilities of intentional instruction and faithful examples that we are to provide. Our text for the morning begins with words that set the tone: diligently watch yourself so that you don’t forget…” Let us commit ourselves to the Lord in this great responsibility.
As we continue in our series of messages on “Family Life,” this week we will look at I Corinthians 13 to talk about the essential ingredient of Love. The passage begins by pointing out that faith, family and even life are meaningless with out love. Indeed many families are in danger because we do not fully understand what love is. In this passage the love we need in our home is defined. Lets look at this definition to evaluate the quality of the love we bring to our family
This Sunday the message will be Family life is Work part 2. We will be looking at Eph.4 and how the Godly life calls for good communication. Nothing is needed more in our marriages and families than healthy and honest communication. In this text, Paul points out that we are not never put off dealing with the daily issues of life.
This week we continue in our series: Family Life. The sermon will focus on Psalms 127 and Proverbs 24:3-4 both of these passages were written by Solomon. In his wisdom he speaks of the work that goes into family life. We are going to look at in investments that we need to make in our marriage and in our home to have a healthy growing family.
This week enter our second week of the sermon series "Family Life”. We will be in Gen. 35 where Jacob leads his family to Bethel (which means, “House of God”) The title of the message is "God made families for Worship.” Jacob gives the example of intentional leadership as he prepares for and then brings his family to a place of worship. The important lesson he provides, is the truth, you cannot lead others to a place where you haven’t been. Jacob was returning to the House of God.
We will begin this new series looking at Romans 12 and the teaching that we are the family of God. As such we are brothers and sisters. We have responsibilities toward one another that we cannot forsake. Most of all share the job of working for unity in the body.
The question this week it the most important question of all. It is the question that clarifies our relationship with Christ. Jesus asks of his disciples and of us, “Who do you say that I am?” In this message we will consider the power of our confession. Who do you say that Jesus is? Have you confessed him as the Christ of God as Peter did. If so the right confession comes with many promises that you won’t want to miss.
This weeks question is, "Where is my honor?.” God asks us, if you call me Father why don’t you honor me as a father and if you call me Lord why don’t you serve me with honor? These again are important questions for us to consider. Does my life honor God? Is my worship worthy of His Name? As you ask yourself these questions let God’s Spirit reveal the truth to you.
This weeks question is: what are you doing here? This question from God is not as much about our location as it is about the condition of our soul. It asks, where are you? Do you stop often and consider this question for yourself? Are you in God’s will are you seeking His best? Or are you letting your own ideas and desires lead your far from God’s presence?
This weeks question should really get us thinking. What if God were to ask you, “What do you want, ask of me anything…” What would you ask for? What we ask for does reveal what is on our heart. Solomon was given this very opportunity. How he responded made all the difference in his life. How and what we ask God for makes a difference in our lives as well.
