CLP Talk 7: The Christian Family
Transcript of CLP Talk 7: The Christian Family
the Family But God's plan for families is not happening. Why not? What can we do? Make a decision that in your family, you want God's plan to happen Take time and give attention to the task of building a strong family Pray together as a family. Make prayer a common and daily occurrence in your family. Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. -1Peter 5:8- The family is under attack by evil forces The family itself is losing its importance The pace of modern life has become fast. This has made it difficult for lasting relationships to develop. Parents no longer bring up their children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. God has lost His central place in the family The family
as the basic unit of society
is no accident of history So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
- Genesis 1:27 28 - God intended man and woman to be one, no independent individuals producing babies, but husband and wife raising a family The family is a place for training leaders. God created man, male and female, with their physiology so formed as to enable man to increase and multiply and fill the earth The family is a place for teaching and training children Christian Life Program Talk # 7 the family as an institution today... The man said,
“This is now bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called ‘woman,’
for she was taken out of man.”
That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.
-Genesis 2: 23-24- A place to transmit wisdom and values of life Wisdom is not just knowing a lot of things, but refers to practical ways of living according to God's ways. Wisdom is not just knowing a lot of things, but refers to practical ways of living according to God's ways. Parents and YOU, FUTURE PARENTS, need to review your own values and see the place of Jesus in your life, because these are the values your own children will learn He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full respect. -1 Timothy 3:4-5 A man who is a proven leader in his home can be a church leader. He receives his basic training in his own home The family is a domestic church...
They present God to their family..
They present their family to God... More and more parents look to psychology as a source of wisdom for raising their children. Husbands and wives do NOT follow God's order for them Stress on materialism & an easy life. Through the years, many of its responsibilities have been taken over by other groups in society Modern recreation facilities allow very little interaction among family members The family has become dispensable. Father Lucas Trevant: What is it that you believe?
Michael Kovak: That's not the devil.
Father Lucas Trevant: Does a thief or a burglar turn on the lights while he's robbing your house? No. He prefers you to believe that he's not there... like the devil! "Father Lucas Trevant: You be careful Michael, choosing not to believe in the devil will not protect you from him." You know, the interesting thing about sceptics, is that we're always looking for proof... the question is, what on earth would we ever do if we found it? Fathers should take steps to assume full responsibility for the spiritual and material needs of the family. Therefore, build-up your father to take on this duty The wives should support their husbands and not take over their roles. Encourage your mothers to help your fathers take on their responsibilities Learn more about God's vision for your family Attend teachings on marriage and family life. Bring your parents with you or invite them to attend these activities Read Christian books and magazines Seek other Christian couples who share your concern about family life, and be in regular fellowship with them. Allow your parents to know these couples. You can look forward to developing real friendships and life giving relationships To maintain a joyful family requires much from both the parents and the children. Each member of the family has to become, in a special way, the servant of the others.
