God-Centered Home Life
In creating a strong family life centered on God, there must be shared time together. Moses commanded Israel: "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up" (Deuteronomy 6:5-8). Moses' timeless advice is the foundation for Biblical spirituality in the home. Time together is the bonding mortar that brings us together before God in live. You never know when you are making a memory with your children.

Deuteronomy repeatedly emphasizes the need for parents to heartily "love" God, to avoid another lost generation as in the wilderness wandering (Deuteronomy 10:12 - 11:32). For God to be first in our lives, His will must be regularly discussed and applied in our daily home life. What we truly love most of all will show up in our priorities, what we talk about, and how we use our time.

To communicate the priority of loving God, we must spend time together. The daily "family hour" needs to be kept in homes that glorify God. Family traditions and shared activities need to be instituted and kept. Working at such togetherness can be memorable and enjoyable!

In Deuteronomy 6, Moses urges us to discuss God's will "when you lie down." This refers to daily bedtime. Kiss your children goodnight. Read to them or listen to them read from the Bible or a Bible devotional. Ask them, "How did things go today?"

"When you rise up" is beginning the day with God. Besides giving thanks at breakfast, give your child a Bible verse for the day, like from (Proverbs. 9:10) "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom."

The family mealtime is a good way to be together "when you sit in your house." We thank God for our blessings (I Timothy 4:4-5). We pray for our needs and cares (Philippians 4:6). By family prayer, it affirms that God is most important in our lives and central to our family's purpose. Turn the TV off!

We can read the Bible together and discuss its meaning and application to our lives. "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge...Hear my son, your father's instruction and do not forsake your mother's teaching; Indeed, they are a graceful wreath to your head and ornaments about your neck" (Proverbs 1:7-9). Proverbs are pithy, memorable sound bites with spiritual punch that children can remember. The father, as the spiritual leader, can read a portion from Proverbs after the family meal. As this becomes part of the family routine to read God's Word together, you then become more comfortable in discussing the practical, specific applications of Scripture in the home. Why not begin this family habit together today!

 

 

 

 

       Christian Family Radio

 

 

 

 

       KVNE RADIO

 

 

 

Last weekend I was working in my office, listening to Pandora set to “shuffle.” Because one of my stations is “80s Radio,” I wound up getting MaDonna's “Like A Virgin” drifting into my earbuds.

 

I couldn’t reach into my pocket fast enough to hit the thumbs down icon on my iPhone. I hate that song and everything it stands for. Plus, since I completely turned my life over to Jesus, I’ve been committed to guarding my heart with my entertainment choices, and that includes the music I listen to. I strongly believe that to honor the Lord, my musical choices should be either positive or neutral. Nothing objectionable.  But as I mentioned, sometimes problematic tunes slip in.

I don’t just listen to secular oldies. If you were skimming through my Pandora stations you’d notice Mercy Me  Radio, Casting Crowns Radio, Toby Mac Radio, and many more too. As you can tell, I don’t listen to Christian music exclusively, but it is rarely that I listen to secular music at all. While walking recently, I closed out my walk with Matt Redman’s “10,000 Reasons.” I love that song because it reminds me that there are an infinite number of reasons why our loving Heavenly Father deserves praise!

I hope you listen to Christian contemporary music, too. A lot of it. If you don’t, I’d like to encourage you to do so.  Do you know what The Christian Music Challenge is?   It's a belief that listening to Christian music might cause a revival of sorts, both personally and nationally. 

  • When we, as Christians, start listening to a lot of Christian music, we begin to focus on life from a biblical worldview.
  • Our lives will begin to change when we’re led by the peace of God. We can start to see all of life from His perspective.
  • Others will notice the difference in our lives and will want to know how they can attain peace in our chaotic world.

 

The 30-Day Christian Music Challenge!   In a nutshell, encourages fellow believers to listen to only Christian music for a month and at the end consider if the experience has been a boost in one’s spiritual growth.

How about you? Are you ready to take up the challenge? 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

KINDLE DEALS

Read to Know

The best reason to read books is to know God. We believe, of course, that each of us can and will meet God in his Word, but this does not mean that he reveals himself to each of us in equal measure. We can and should benefit from what others have learned and we do that through books. Books are an important part of our lifelong task of coming to know the person and works of God.

Read to Grow

Reading is a means through which we initiate and maintain personal growth. We read to know God and we read to grow in our ability to honor him in every area of our lives. There are three kinds of growth I want to point you toward: Growth in areas of weakness, in areas of strength, and in areas of responsibility.
