God has a plan for your home.
In May 2017, I will preach a sermon series at Rocky Creek entitled “Biblical Blueprint.” It’s all about family discipleship.
While this topic started as a doctoral project, it quickly became a ministry centerpiece. I have had more opportunities to preach on this topic than any other. The concept hit a chord in a surprisingly loud manner.
I had someone tell me that once you start thinking family discipleship, it starts popping out all over the Bible. It’s always been there but it is normally overlooked. I couldn’t agree more.
While we will only be grazing the surface, family discipleship is an important truth to cover. Our church cultures do a lot of work to create spiritually-nurturing environments, but if we neglect the home, we are hindering the discipleship of all generations.
The most critical spiritual environment is the one in which you live.
Here’s how the month will come together:
- 5/7/17 – Biblical Blueprint: Unless the LORD Builds the House (Psalm 127) – Families can focus upon numerous worthless pursuits. As believers, we must build our families based upon the biblical blueprint provided.
- 5/14/17 – Biblical Blueprint: Suitable Helper (Gen. 2; Eph. 5:26) – While sin seeks to corrupt our families, God has given us a helper through the gift of marriage. In marriage, you are meant to be a suitable helper for your spouse.
- 5/21/17 – Biblical Blueprint: Teach Your Children Diligently (Deut. 6:4-9) – While the church provides important spiritual environments, the most critical spiritual environment is the one in which you live. Parents are called to evangelize and disciple their children.
- 5/28/17 – Biblical Blueprint: The Exposed Places (Neh. 4:10-14) – In every home, there are exposed places for danger to enter. We must identify where they are, build up the walls, and fight against combative tactics.
If you don’t have a church home, we would love for you to join us at Rocky Creek.
