INTRODUCTION:

The Christian family is an institution where parents are bound together by Christian love, where children are happy and instructed with the scriptures, where the Lord Jesus is the Head and where parents and children gather daily for worship. A Christian family is one that radiates Christ, welcomes strangers and dispenses hospitality.

  1. WHAT IS THE DUTY OF THE FATHER?

God has placed the husband as the head of the home. –

Ephesians_5-25: Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it

Ephesians_5-25: Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it

Ephesians 5:23

For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

 

The Christian husband must always put God first in his life.

 

Luke 14:26

If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

 

He must love his wife, children and must love Christ more.

He is the priest of the family and responsible to establish a family altar for daily worship.

 

  1. WHAT IS THE DUTY OF THE MOTHER?

One or two loving women have made many men great, a godly mother or a devoted wife is a tremendous asset. She is to serve Jesus Christ, show love, obey her husband.

 

 

Ephesians 5:22

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord

 

The woman is not to be adorned with ornaments only, instead, wives are to be adorned with good works, a meek and quiet spirit.

1 Peter 3:4-5

Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. 5 For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to adorn themselves. They submitted themselves to their own husbands

 

 Must be trustworthy.

 

WHAT IS THE DUTY OF THE CHILDREN?

Children are to honour their parents

 

Exodus 20:12

Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

 

Obey them

Luke 2:51

And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart.

 

And pray for them

 

They must also return their parent’s love. Children of today shall be the parents of tomorrow.-

Galatians 6:7

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

CONCLUSION:

 The secret of a successful Christian home is in the family altar where Christ is the crowned as Head of the home. Love is the second secret. Fathers and mothers should always remember that we are all children with a loving Father above, who constantly demonstrates His love. –

Hebrews. 12:6

For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

God Loves To Sing Too

Psalms_89-1-2: I will sing of the mercies of the LORD for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations

Psalms_89-1-2: I will sing of the mercies of the LORD for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations

Zephaniah 3:17

The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

So God loves to sing too! He even likes to share his lullabies with those he loves. Not only is God Abba Father, he is also like a mother. He gently rocks and quiets his children with his affectionate care.

Prayer:

O God, I pray that when the storms of life rage against me, I will remember these words and find refuge, comfort and peace in Your sheltering care. Make me aware, O God, of Your singing in my life as You make Your salvation more clear to me each day. Through my Savior Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.

May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

 

 

 

May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!

Hint: It’s all about the little victories.

  1. Your kids now remind you to say “please” and “thank you.”
  1. You hug your kids constantly, even when they try to wriggle away.
  1. Last week, your 5-year-old ate veggies. At a restaurant. Without causing a scene.
  1. Your kids have put fingers but so far no objects up their nose.
  1. You once walked in on your daughter making her bed and watched as she carefully fluffed the pillows and smoothed the sheets. #proud
  1. At this very moment, everyone in your house is wearing pants.
  1. Your son’s in a ketchup-on-everything phase, and you’ve been nothing but supportive. You do you, kid.
  1. You play along with them about the tooth fairy, even though you know they’re just pretending in order to get the cash.
  1. Your kids have heard the words “I love you” at least once today—and probably more times than you can count.
  1. When you step on a Lego with bare feet at 2 a.m., you only silently curse them…because screaming would wake them up.
  1. Your 9-month-old claps and sways when you play Abbey Road.
  1. You always manage to pack your kids lunch—even if you have to literally throw it at them as they run out the door.
  1. Your daughter still only wants you to put her to bed, and as far as you know, it’s not some evil plot by your husband.
