February is “Family Matters” month!

In February, our theme is going to be the FAMILY because the family matters to God.

Did you realize that marriage and family were instituted BEFORE the church was instituted? Not that the family is more important than the church since Jesus is building His church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it (Matthew 16:18). But what makes the church healthier is healthy families where husband, wife, and children are learning to live in community with each other under God’s laws as God’s people of grace.

The family is important to God. Look at one of the requirements for overseers in the church in I Timothy 3:4-5: “He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God’s church?”**

So reflect on your family this month. Where do you need to improve to improve your family? What can you do to reflect the glory of God to your family members? How can you show them the love of Christ?

-Mark (looking forward to a month of family emphasis in Christ)
