Is your family serving God?
December 3, 2009
"But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."
-- Joshua 24:15
Many parents today are reading all the latest books and magazines on parenting so they can preserve their family relationships and equip their children for successful living. And I'm all for that kind of insight and instruction. As parents it's essential that you and I invest ourselves in our children.
But if you really want to make some serious headway on behalf of your family, you need to do what Joshua did in the Old Testament: You need to make God a priority in your life as a family!
This is a decision that will strengthen each person in your family as well as each individual. And after you've made this commitment, many of the other decisions that will follow will already be settled because you've established your priority.
If your family has been struggling and is in need of revival, then let it begin by making a fresh commitment to the Lord as a family. Give your family a great purpose… the purpose that comes by choosing Christ first and above all else and others.
Declare your priority as a family and live out your faith full throttle for God!
GIVE YOUR FAMILY A GREAT PURPOSE… THE PURPOSE THAT COMES BY CHOOSING CHRIST FIRST.
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
