Title: Being the Church In Our Homes
Scripture: Psalm 23:4, Matthew 5:4, 2 Corinthians 1:3-7, Deuteronomy 6:5-9, Psalm 127:1
Big Idea: Being the church in your home means being willing to put the needs of other people even above your own rest when you most want it, and even when it’s terribly inconvenient. Sometimes it’s easier to plan to serve at a soup kitchen or go on a mission trip. Our homes are intimate, and where we go to escape the burdens of the world–which, if we aren’t careful, makes them into barricaded environments that allow us to reject the call to serve Christ always, in every place, and in every situation. Serve your family and your guests with the understanding that teaching and modeling the comfort found in redemption allows them the chance to experience God’s comfort for themselves.
