The first great essential and prerequisite in the building of a Christian home is that every member of the family must admit Jesus into their heart.
Let’s briefly discuss some important ideas that will be of help to build your home for Christ:
WORD OF GOD: Almost every “Christian” home has at least a bible but the bible is read in few homes. A clean, unmarked bible is not a good testimony. The bible should be read aloud at least once a day in the family.
PRAYERS: Serious and earnest prayer will put your home in direct contact with Christ. Prayer will drive out bitterness, harshness and even infidelity. Your home needs the family altar.
CHURCH: One of the reasons for the sinking condition of many homes is the failure to attend the house of God. Some homes are Sunday-Morning-Type of family who ties their home to the church of God only on Sunday morning. Attend all of the Sunday services and other weekly programs organized with your family.
Answer this question,
“Does Jesus live at your house?” If He has never entered, then let Him in today. If He was once there, then open wide the door again, and bid Him enter. Shalom!
