Strong Families Result in Strong Churches

The Lord bless you from Zion, and may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life. – Psalm 128:5

If we honor the Lord and have homes that bless the Lord, we will more likely have a blessed church family. Jerusalem was the center of the congregation of Israel. As Jerusalem went, so went the entire congregation. Today, God’s work is through His local churches. So the application for us is that our churches will be blessed and strong when healthy families are in the church. Actually, it is a beautiful reciprocal relationship. The church needs the family and the family needs the church.

Hillary Clinton once wrote a book stating that it takes a village to raise a child. She’s wrong; it takes a church to raise a child. You better not just throw your children out to the village. You must have a church where you know there is sound doctrine that produces strong convictions and sound Christians! You must know that wherever your children are involved in the church that the values of the godly home are reinforced and encouraged. I have said it many times, and I believe it with all of my heart. My daughters are what they are today primarily because they have been raised in a good church. It’s not enough just to be a godly dad. Moms, it’s not enough just to homeschool your kids and think they will turn out right. You need a church family to love them with you, to exhort them with you, to reprove them with you, to instruct them with you, and to encourage them with you. And then, we are far more likely to see our children vigorous and strong and healthy both emotionally and physically, but also and primarily spiritually. It is why I fight for this church, because it affects all of us.

I have told so many people that almost thirty years ago when I purposed to reform the church to be more biblically healthy, I did not know a lot. I just knew something had to be done. But I had no idea that I would be blessed in my own home by reforming the church. I just knew it was right for the church to be biblical, but I had no idea how wonderfully the blessings would flow back to me and my family.

I have been blessed in my children, but I can’t take much of the credit. My daughters have a wonderful mom, wonderful grandparents, and a wonderful church family. The church is essential to raising your children for the glory of God, and strong families are essential for the church to be strong. We’ve got to have each other, inseparably linked in God’s providential plan.
