Love It or List It?

God chooses us, and His faithful love amidst our unfaithful idolatry enables us to make a break with our past and surrender our whole self to Him.

Scripture: Joshua 24:1-31

A Valiant Journey to Abolish Idolatry and Institute Proper Worship of God

The story of King Josiah abolishing idolatry and instituting proper worship of the One True God throughout Judah is a shadow of King Jesus abolishing idolatry and instituting proper worship of the One True God in the hearts of God’s people. God’s people ought to imitate this biblical pattern in the day-to-day living of their home, as they seek to remove idolatry and make time for worshipping the One True God as a family.

Scripture: 2 Kings 22-23

Inspection: Modeling Faith for Watching Eyes and Listening Ears

Look at your family tree and consider the traits passed from one generation to the next. We have no control over biological traits, but every family has unique traits that mark each generation that are passed on through intentional effort.

We transmit what we treasure. We pass on our passions. If we want the next generation to love Jesus with all their heart, soul and strength, then this generation must love Him wholeheartedly, and show our children and our children’s children what that looks like in every season of our lives.

So, how do we practice intentionality in modeling our faith before our children? This text shows us five ways…

Scripture: Deuteronomy 6:1-25; 1 Corinthians 11:1; 2 Timothy 1:5; Hebrews 13:7

Faith@Home

Two alarming trends have been evident among evangelical Christians and their churches for nearly twenty years: the health of their marriages and the active rejection or passive abandoning of the faith by the next generation.

Is the problem what’s happening or not happening at church, or what needs to happen in the home? We believe that more and more the church has forgotten her role to equip parents to be the primary disciple makers of their children, and equip husbands and wives to see marriage as a reenactment of the gospel.

What we want to see is multigenerational faithfulness to Jesus. But how do we get there? Deuteronomy 6 is the foundation for nurturing faith at home.

Scripture: Deuteronomy 6:1-15
