“Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.” Ephesians 2:19

“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.” 2 Peter 3:18

Disruptive Influences
Family in the eyes of secular society, has become the playground for disruptive influences. Divorce has become an epidemic; abortion is on the rise, and child abuse cases are skyrocketing. The attack on the traditional roles of men and women have become widely ignored; policies that subtly erode family values are being embraced, and so much more is happening, in an attempt to destroy God’s idea of the family, in today’s society.

Our Families Are Testimonies!
Nonetheless, despite the worldwide assault on the family, the Lord is looking to us, as His family, to be a testimony! The world will look at our families, children, marriages, and singles, and know that there is a God in heaven. The family is a place where Jehovah is Father God, and we are His children. God the Father has redeemed you and I to Himself, by His Son, so that He can gain us back, as members of His family. As a result, we are subject to the blessings, goodness and power that is found in the family of God.

God's Mercies Are New Every Morning
The mercies of God are new every morning, so seek a new level of intimacy with Him every day, and do not be satisfied with yesterday’s encounter! Songs of Solomon 1:2 says: “Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth- for your love is better than wine”. Wine is designed to bring us into a place of ecstasy and enjoyment. The ‘kissing’ of the word speaks of a union between yourself, and the word of God. It is better than the euphoria of wine, so seek after it daily, and let it guide your encounters with your immediate, and church family!
