Our homes are agencies for the advancement of the kingdom, embassies to the gospel that we will provide to others a taste of heaven.
What a glorious task we have. What an amazing privilege to be workers of the kingdom of God.
Hospitality is a beautiful gift when we can open up our homes and hearts and share the truth of God’s word, His gospel, His love, and His kindness.
Displaying the heart of God to our children by showing God’s grace, by humbling our hearts and sharing the truth of repentance. Our children are watching, and while we are not perfect people, we need to admit the truth, when we sin; sin is missing the mark and falling short. When we ask for forgiveness with a humbled heart, it points our children to our gracious Savior, who has forgiven us of all our wretched sin. Are you thankful? I know I am so thankful that God has forgiven me of all my sin.
I want to display God’s truth in my home, I want my home to be a house of love, a house of prayer, a house of grace, a house of joy and a house of worship. All for His glory.
‘But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers. And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.” Be hospitable to one another without grumbling. As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.’ I Peter 4:7-11
Dear Lord, Thank you for everything that You are. Thank You for Your constant love, Your grace and forgiveness. Help me to be watchful and never cease praying. Please strengthen and guide my children in Your Holy ways, give them hearts of repentance, help them to use their gifts for Your glory and to serve You with everlasting joy, may their hearts reverence and honor You. Help them to be good stewards with all that You have entrusted them with. Thank You LORD for supplying for all our needs. Help us to develop godly friendships that bring You glory. May our homes be filled with your peace, joy, love, grace, prayer and worship. Let us be the generation who does what is right in the sight of the LORD. Let our hearts bow down in humble adoration before You because You LORD are worthy to receive honor and praise and glory. In Jesus Holy Mighty Name. Amen.
