Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned
When we look at our children we can’t help but see trait of character that are in both u no them. Sometimes it I hocking to de ho much of a likeness they are to us. But the family has don’t more than pass on hereditary character traits. Through families, sin has been passed down to all generations. All have sinned.
But through families, God’s love and grace can be extended to all around.
Just like the men of old- Abraham, Isaach, Joshua- all left an example for their children to follow of serving the Lord, we too can leave that same example.
When we know Christ, we will live like Him. Then we will show Him to our families. Then our families can be able to show Who Chirst is.
God is love.
When we receive God’s love, then we are able to show it. When we show love, we show God. It is then that our families can be used as extensions of His love. It is then that we can witness to the world of who God is.
Lord, use our families to show Your Love to the world. First Lord, we must know that Love and knowing that love means knowing You. We want to know You Lord. Continue to show us who You are. Let Your love transform us so that we will have families where You love reigns supreme. Use our families to extend Your love to others, that those who see us may see You and be drawn to You. This we pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
