God’s Plan for a Happy Home-Part V

Up until now we’ve examined the relationship of husbands and wives in the structure of the home. I would now like to examine scriptures regarding the children in the family. It is important for them to understand that their actions can cause strife in a home or can bring peace. Some people may be surprised to find out that God gives children rules to follow since younger children may not be old enough to understand. If they are too young to grasp the Bible it is the parent’s responsibility to train them so that they can understand. Let’s look at training children first and see what God says. While some families may not be able to have children having them completes God’s perfect order. When God created the woman for Adam … Read entire article »

God’s Plan for a Happy Home-Part IV

This week I will continue covering passages that deal with the husbands. Last week I went through Ephesians chapter five which explains that the man stands in the role of Christ in His relationship to the Church. The wife stands in the role of the Church in her relationship to Christ. Since God has declared that the man is head of the home it is important that we understand what He has called us to do. As I was going through the passages for last week’s message I came across 1st Peter 3:7. While it is just one verse I kept it for this week so that we could break it down. Let’s see if we can find the depth it was written in. As I often say we skim … Read entire article »

God’s Plan for a Happy Home-Part III

This is a continuation of a series I am doing on the family. I am going to give my standard disclaimer as I did on the other two parts before I begin. It does not matter if you believe the Bible or not or if you choose to ignore its teachings. You were created by Jehovah God and the institution of marriage was ordained by Him as one man and one woman. You will never find happiness in a relationship that does not go along with what He has established. While you may find temporary enjoyment in what you are doing it is only that-temporary. Ignoring the master plan from the Master Builder will lead to disaster. Following God’s Word will prove itself out to be truth. It has for … Read entire article »

God’s Plan for a Happy Home-Part II

Last week I looked at some very foundational things for the family. The families are under attack today like never before. People of God need to know what the Word says about our role in families, what we should do and what we should not do. I mentioned in part one that it was difficult to find a properly functioning home in the Word of God. Even in the best families recorded in the Bible we see problems and mistakes. This should be a comfort to you that there is hope for your family. I made a disclaimer last week that I will repeat this week. I am covering what God says is His best for the family He ordained. Just because you do not agree with it or think … Read entire article »

God’s Plan for a Happy Home—Part One

I was asked recently to talk about the home and family. The world is quickly trying to redefine the word “family” to be any two or more people living together. God ordained it thousands of years ago as one man and one woman producing Godly offspring.  Our world is desperately in need of reformation for the family. The survival of mankind is dependant on a properly functioning home unit. When homes are out of order it causes society to be out of order. Let me make one disclaimer before I begin. There will be many who scoff at what I’m going to share. My disclaimer is this: I am speaking from the perspective as a Christian who believes that God Almighty created us in His image and that He did it … Read entire article »
