Living The Changed Life #6 – A CHANGED LIFE IN THE HOME

It is in the setting of the business of our daily lives at home that God uses as yet another arena for our sanctification. After all, it is here that our sinful imperfections are magnified. And if these imperfections aren't dealt with first in our homes then we will forever be ineffective in living for Christ. It is in the home where we learn submission and mercy and love and joy. And it is this that characterises the difference between a household that is saved and a household that isn't. After all, if children don't learn to obey their parents whom they can see, how can they ever hope to obey god whom they cannot see.

Living The Changed Life #1 – SERIES INTRODUCTION

As Christians, we observe that with passing of time, the things that once enthralled us no longer hold us captive. The past becomes dim, even though our memories of it can be fond and intensely positive. Like a photo album that reminds us of the past, enabling us to relive the joy and excitement of days gone by, so the verses in today’s passage remind us of the details of our salvation. And what we see isn't pretty, which explains why so many are reluctant to preach it. But it is God’s truth and we mustn't gloss over it if we are to really appreciate our salvation.
