Your Ministry Starts At Home
Our church celebrates and champions families!
I want to shout out: God loves you and your family, much more than you love them! He wants to empower you to build a healthy and happy family.
Your ministry starts at home, not in church. The way you love and lead your parents, children and siblings matters. Apostle Paul instructs Timothy to teach the leaders in the church to manage well their family. If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church? (1 Timothy 3:4-6)
The way you love your family matters. A Fuller Youth Institute study of relational dynamics analyzed the warmth of families.* The study looked at more than 300 families over a span of 35 years. The findings revealed that the No. 1 value correlated to creating a family of warmth and togetherness is faith. Researchers wrote: "Families in which children and parents felt close were more likely to be families in which children adopted the faith of their parents."
Let us persevere in building a warm and caring family where faith is passed on!
Your ministry must not stop in the home for God has called you to be a blessing. As you encounter God in your family, you will grow in compassion and faith to help others. In January 2021, my older brother who lives overseas underwent a bone marrow transplant. During this crisis, I wanted to pause everything, including ministry, to be with him and his family. But God assured me He is with my family. He taught me how to intercede and not lose hope. He gave me wisdom to serve my family in practical ways. By God's grace, the transplant was successful! My family continues to trust God to fully restore my brother's health. Because God has been so real to my family, I want to share His love and power with others too! This trial has deepened my family's conviction: As for me and my family, we will serve the Lord. I encourage you and your family to share God's blessings with others. As you receive freely, so share freely!
Stay blessed in your marriage and family! Seek to be a blessing to others! In this way we show the world we are Christ’s disciples.
