Could your family survive a storm?

Many Christian families are in trouble…but aren’t sure what to do.

What we’re hearing from families in the storm.

[These comments are based on a survey we sent out in early June of 2018.]

Two kinds of families

1. Yes, every family goes through hard things. But some families go through hard times, relational struggles, health issues, you name it, and come out of those difficulties more firmly built on the Rock.

2. Other families are placed in the same difficult circumstances but just seem to dry up and fall apart. Parents and kids “come out of the storm” angry, hurt, jaded about life. And they part ways to more or less “do their own thing.”

What makes the difference? Listen to what Jesus says

Two thousand years ago, our Lord Jesus Christ was sitting on a mountain with His disciples and the crowds. He was delivering what we now call the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7).

Jesus ended his message with a life-and-death contrast. Pay attention to this! This is the key to understanding the difference between the families who last and the families who don’t.

[ATTENTION: Many people tend to skim-read familiar things like Bible verses. Don’t do that. Read them carefully.]

The storm is headed your way

Let’s face it. All of us are in a storm. What kind of storm? Satan hates us. He hates our families. We’re on his “To Destroy” list. And the brunt of his “blast” will be focused on what we believe and the choices we make because of our beliefs.

The Wise Man believed the rock was the best place to build. So he chose to build his house there. The Foolish Man didn’t think it was “that big a deal.” So he made the foolish choice to build on the sand.

As we live our lives, what we ACTUALLY believe is going to be shown by the choices we make. Do you truly believe that Jesus’ words are the words of eternal life? Do you believe that hearing and doing His words is the most important thing to do in life? Look at the choices you’re making right now.

So now the million dollar question: What choices are you making?

Will your family survive the storm? (Take the test)

Read through the following 5 questions and try to answer them as honestly as possible. How are you and your family doing?

1. Are you consistently reading the Bible as a family?
2. Are you regularly praying the Word over real-life situations as a family?
3. Are you consistently worshipping (“Wow, God!!”) as a family?
4. Is the Word of God changing your families’ relationships, interests, and how you study/work?
5. Is your family regularly sharing the life-giving truth of God’s Word with others?

Let’s look at your results

If you found it hard to answer “yes” to any of the five questions above…we get it. None of us are perfect. We all desperately need Jesus. That said, we need to take this seriously. To the extent that we aren’t reading, praying, worshipping through, living out, and sharing God’s Word, we’re built on the sand. We’re vulnerable to the storm.

Feeling bothered? Good! That’s the first step forward. But Christ never intended us to stay “bothered.” If your family is not firmly anchored on the Word of God, there’s only one thing to do…start building in the power of Christ and don’t ever quit!

That’s why we’re excited to share a special growth opportunity for you and your family in Ocean Shores this September 7-8 at…

…the Bible and Apologetics Family Conference!

Generations and Christian Heritage are hosting the Bible and Apologetics Family Conference to help families “be the wise man” and build on the rock-solid foundation of God’s Word.

With a firm reliance upon the Holy Spirit of God, the Bible Family Conference will equip you and your family to:

  • Teach the Bible, that the generation to come might know the works of the Lord
  • Integrate the Bible into every single school subject for your children
  • Sing the Bible making melody in your heart to the Lord
  • Memorize the Bible, from young to old
  • Believe the Bible, no matter the cost
  • Live the Bible, in all of family life
  • Stand on the Bible, in a culture that has rejected its authority

Why the Bible Conference?

“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.” — Jesus

For many Christian families, there has been a slow but steady decline in their devotion to the Word of God. The Word of God is no longer central to family life and education. As a result, their families have disintegrated because they were not “founded on the rock.”

Now is the time to lay again the foundation of God’s word in our homes. With a firm reliance upon the Holy Spirit of God, the Bible Conference will equip you and your family to:

  • Teach the Bible, that the generation to come might know the works of the Lord
  • Integrate the Bible into every single school subject for your children
  • Sing the Bible making melody in your heart to the Lord
  • Memorize the Bible, from young to old
  • Believe the Bible, no matter the cost
  • Live the Bible, in all of family life
  • Stand on the Bible, in a culture that has rejected its authority
