Daily Fountain 2017 - The Christian Home






Tuesday March 21

Bible Reading:     Col. 3: 18 - 25

Topic:         The Christian Home

The first Institution that God founded on earth was Marriage (Gen. 2: 18 - 25) and this is the bedrock of every home.

Faith in Jesus Christ not only changes individuals, it also changes homes.

Paul addresses family members - husbands, wives, children and servants (vs. 18 - 22)

The home is meant to be a place of joy, happiness, security and comfort but so many marriages are under pressure cause homes to dysfunction. Consequently society is also in disarray.

One of the greatest things we can do as individuals is to help in building godly Christian homes.

Paul addressed the various members of the family and pointed out the factors that make for a strong and godly home which are

1.      Submission of wives to their husbands (v. 18)

2.      Love from husbands to their wives (v. 19)

3.      Obedience of children to their parents in all things (v. 20)

4.      Fathers not provoking their children (v. 21)

5.      Total obedience of servants to their masters (v. 22)

We must do the above heartily and conscientiously to the glory and praise of God.

Prayer:
Almighty God crown my home with beauty and peace in Jesus Name, Amen, Amen.

Memory verse:   Col. 3: 23
"And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily and as unto the Lord and not as unto men"
