God’s House — Your House
We live in a broken world.
A corrupt world:
A world that has lost its true identity. A world that worships itself and has rejected God and His ways. A world that is hopeless and corrupt — motivated by the root of all evil (money). The Bible teaches us about the Church, about families: how we are to live and the life we should all strive for.
A broken world:
In Luke 4:18, Jesus said He came to heal the brokenhearted. That’s you and I. There is a little brokenness inside all of us. Families are broken, with divorce rates very high, depending on which study you buy into. People are now living together instead of marrying. Homosexuals are marrying, and our society is applauding it. It’s not real — God does not accept that type of marriage. God is the One who ordained marriage between one man and one woman (only). All other marriages are just the reflection of a lost, broken society.
Jesus — the Healer:
One study found that the divorce rate among Christians is much lower than the world’s. But it defined what a true believer, serious about their faith is: someone who: 1) goes to church at least once a week, 2) reads their Bible and other spiritual books, and 3) prays privately and together. If you do these things, the divorce rate significantly drops. So, the answer to what ails society is Jesus and the word of God.
Begin today to ask Him to heal you and strengthen you so you will become the most effective believer you can become.
Just a thought,
