Sermon Notes

What is a Family?

  1. Theological Community
  2. Sociological Community
  3. Redemptive Community

“if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.”
– 1 Timothy 5:8

Over 40% of homes in America have stepchildren.

How to Serve Blended Families.

  1. Acknowledge their role.
  2. Sympathize with their struggle.
  3. Include them.

Discipleship Begins in the Home.

“Every Christian family ought to be as it were a little church, consecrated to Christ, and wholly influenced and governed by his rules. And family education and order are some of the chief means of grace. If these fail, all other means are likely to prove ineffective. If these are duly maintained, all the means of grace will be likely to prosper and be successful.”
– Jonathan Edwards
