Eph. 2:19, So now you Gentiles are no longer strangers and foreigners. You are citizens along with all of God’s holy people. You are members of God’s family.
When I was a child, church was considered our family.
We called everyone in church ‘Aunt’ or ‘Uncle’. It was so much fun. It was kind of funny when I got older because I was trying to figure out who were the actual blood relatives compared to church family. Some of the people who were blood relatives were not even as close as the church family.
The environment was one where I loved to go and just see all my family. I couldn’t wait to go to church. Even when I wasn’t following the Lord correctly I wanted to go because that is where all my friends were.
The Godly environment was truly the reason I am serving God today, and I want to thank my parents for making church, God’s house, a PRIORITY.
My mother and father taught me that nothing is more important than being at Dad’s, Father God’s house.
I have heard people say, “I don’t want them to come if they don’t want to”, or “We are just busy on Sundays”. O my goodness, don’t you realize that the VALUE you place on the house of God is the VALUE your children will place on the house of God when they are parents?
When my children got a job it was simple – you will not work on Sunday’s! (One job scheduled them on a Sunday and I called the workplace and told them this was the only and last time or they would need to find another employee)
When my children were in sports – you will not play on Sunday’s! (I think they missed 2 services because of sports)
IF YOU ONLY BRING YOUR FAMILY TO DAD’S HOUSE ONCE A MONTH, WHEN THEY GET A FAMILY THEY WILL DO THE SAME, OR LESS!
Let’s make Father’s house of upmost importance. Building relationships in Church. Build relationships for our children, and their children’s children.
IF THEY ARE IN THE HOUSE OF GOD CONSISTENTLY THEN THEY WILL HAVE THE FOUNDATION FOR GENERATIONS!
