Our homes say a lot about us. How we spend our time there, the way we decorate, and what we do inside its walls speaks volumes about what we believe.
As Christians, our homes should be marked for God and reflect Jesus in everything we do. It needs to be evident that Christ is alive there.
In order to build a godly home, we must center it around God- His will, His desires, His Word.He should be the hub.
Ideally our houses should be places of worship, rather than just a structure where we eat, sleep, and play.
Here are a few practical steps for building godly homes and ministering to our families well…
1. WORSHIP GOD WITHOUT RIVALS
A lot of things compete for God’s position on the throne of our hearts. In our culture, we serve the idols of convenience, entertainment, prosperity and self. These things get in the way of truly honoring God and receiving His blessings over our homes and families.
2. PRACTICE BIBLICAL LOVE
Biblical love is not that romantic, emotional love we see portrayed in Hollywood movies. It is driven to action. It is unconditional. It is the same kind of love Jesus demonstrated for you and for me at the Cross.
To practice the definition of biblical love in our homes, we should look no further than 1 Corinthians 13:4-7:
Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
3. ESTEEM THE BIBLE
By referring our children to the Bible in everything we do, esteeming it and applying it, we show that it is sufficient to answer the deepest questions of life.
4. COMMIT TO A BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW
Psalm 139:17says, “How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them!” .
We are the gatekeepers of our homes and have authority from God to deny entrance into that space.
5. TEACH YOUR CHILDREN THE WORD OF GOD
With all the moments available to us throughout the day, we can these unplanned opportunities to pour the Word of God into our children.
6. FILL YOUR HOME WITH PRAISE AND WORSHIP
There is something about the power of music. When that music is full of Scripture and centers us on the truth of God’s Word, it is even more powerful! It reminds us of who we are with respect to God, sets our focus on the right things, and helps us commit truth to memory.
7. DECORATE WITH REMINDERS OF GOD’S PROMISES
.One way to fight against our forgetful minds is to repeat Scripture in our house decorations.
8. PRAY SCRIPTURE OVER YOUR CHILDREN
There is a very real battleground for your home and for the hearts and minds of your children. Prayer is our greatest weapon against the enemy’s strongholds in their lives.
9. MODEL JOYFUL SERVICE & HOSPITALITY
Hospitality should be a natural extension of the service you’re already demonstrating within the walls of your home.
