Victorious Christian Living in our FAMILY And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. JOSHUA 24:15
outline Victorious Christian Living (Having Family Goals)
ERTAINLY, it is God Who designed the home, but every member of that institution should decide to contribute in its strengthening. When everybody agrees to apply God’s Word in the home, then a victorious family will surely be evident. Satan is active in destroying the Christian homes, and we must be aware of that. I exhort you to be responsible enough to do your part in strengthening your home, whether you are the father, mother or children. I pray that you benefited as we conclude our Sunday School theme this month about family. As we get near the summer months, many will be busy concerning the end of the school year with graduation celebrations, vacation plans and summer getaways. I encourage you to still be faithful in God’s service. Put God on the top of your priority list. I repeat what you always hear me say, “There is no summer vacation in Christian life.” We must also realize that what is happening around the world like the disaster in Japan, the missiles in Libya, the instability in the Middle East, and the recent earthquake in Myanmar, must wake us up to do more for God. He is just showing signs that His coming is very near, and we must not worry but work harder to see more souls saved. As your pastor, I do not want God to return and see our church satisfied with what we have. Let us continually work together for His glory!

I. It is a choice that must be proclaimed. A. The father’s proclamation to serve the Lord as the servant leader will make a godly impact upon the choices of the family as a whole. B. The mother’s pronouncement to serve the Lord as a submissive lifetime-partner will make a great influence upon the certitude (firmness) of children in the family. C. The children’s publication to serve the Lord as support laborers will make a good impression upon the confirmation (testimony) of the family as a whole. II. It is a covenant that must be performed. A. A covenant has a command for cleansing. B. A covenant is a commitment of cleaving. C. A covenant is a concord (agreement) to carry on. D. A covenant is a contract that will be compensated.

God’s Plan for the Home T
Home is a place to learn about God.
HIS passage provides the central theme of Deuteronomy. It sets a pattern that helps us relate the Word of God to our daily lives. We are to love God, think constantly about his commandments, teach his commandments to our children, and live each day by the guidelines in his Word. God emphasized the importance of parents teaching the Bible to their children. The church and Christian schools cannot be used to escape from this responsibility. The Bible provides so many opportunities for object lessons and practical teaching that it would be a shame to study it only one day a week. Eternal truths are most effectively learned in the loving environment of a Godfearing home. BIBLE READING: Deut. 6:1-25 KEY BIBLE VERSE: “And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when
PAGE 04 | MARCH 27 | ACTS 29
thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.” Deuteronomy 6:6-7
Eli’s house shall not be purged with sacrifice nor offering for ever.” 1 Samuel 3:13-14
Serving God does not exempt people from responsibilities at home.
Home is a place of mutual service and respect.
LI had spent his entire life in service to God. His responsibility was to oversee all the worship in Israel. But in pursuing this great mission he neglected the responsibilities in his own home. Don’t let your desire to do God’s work cause you to neglect your family. If you do, your mission may degenerate into a quest for personal importance, and your family will suffer the consequences of your neglect. BIBLE READING: 1 Samuel 3:1-4:1 KEY BIBLE VERSE: “For I have told him that I will judge his house for ever for the iniquity which he knoweth; because his sons made themselves vile, and he restrained them not. And therefore I have sworn unto the house of Eli, that the iniquity of
F our faith in Christ is real, it will usually prove itself at home, in our relationships with those who know us best. Children and parents have a responsibility to each other. Children should honor their parents even if the parents are demanding and unfair. Parents should care gently for their children, even if the children are disobedient and unpleasant. Ideally, of course, Christian parents and Christian children will relate to each other with thoughtfulness and love. This will happen if both parents and children put the others’ interests above their own—that is, if they submit to one another. BIBLE READING: Ephesians 6:1-4 KEY BIBLE VERSE: “And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the
nurture and admonition of the Lord.” Ephesians 6:4 Home is one place the church can gather together.
OME Bible studies are not new. As the believers needed to grow in their new faith, home Bible studies met their needs, as well as serving as a means to introduce new people to the Christian faith. During later times of persecution, meeting in homes became the primary method of passing on Bible knowledge. Christians throughout the world still use this approach when under persecution and as a way to build up believers. Meeting in homes is a good reminder to believers that the church is not a building, but people. BIBLE READING: Acts 5:17-42 KEY BIBLE VERSE: “And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.” Acts 5:42

Blessings of Being On Time for Worship Sevices 1. It gives time for fellowship. Spending time conversing and building up other Christians is a blessing. "And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more,as ye see the day approaching." Hebrews 10:24-25 2. It gives time to prepare for worship. When we are late, we feel rushed. By getting to worship on time, there is time to relax and focus on studying God"s Word.
3. It is an encouragement to Bible teachers. They have spent a great deal of time preparation. When a child comes in late, teachers often restart the lesson. Precious time is lost. It is an interruption and distraction to the adult class, too. 4. It sets a good example. We are on time for things that are important to us. Let us show our children and our church family that worship services are important.

Starting next week, all 1st service members who will arrive after the first congregational singing will have to wait outside until the 1st worship service ends. They should attend the succeeding divided Sunday School classes and still have to stay for the 2nd worship service.
It is such a great blessing to be a part of a church that is training its members to be good stewards of the time that God has entrusted. Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:16 Let all things be done decently and in order. 1 Corinthians 14:40 Whoso keepeth the commandment shall feel no evil thing: and a wise man's heart discerneth both time and judgment.

A man going from his house to the stable one snowy morning, heard a voice behind him, “I’m coming along, too, Papa,” and, looking behind, saw his little son lifting his little feet and planting them carefully in his father’s footsteps. So do the children imitate their parents. “No man liveth unto himself.” Our children walk in our footsteps; so let us take heed how we walk.
Ayon sa Biblia, Iisa Lamang ang Daan Patungong Langit! NG sabi ni Hesus, “Ako ang daan, ang katotohanan, at ang buhay: walang makapupunta sa Ama kundi sa pamamagitan ko.” Juan 14:6
Wala nang iba pang makapagliligtas sa iyo mula sa impierno. Magtiwala ka kay Hesus ngayon! (Roma 6:23) “Kung ipahahayag ng iyong bibig na si Hesus ay Panginoon at mananampalataya ka nang buong puso na Siya’y muling binuhay ng Diyos, ikaw ay maliligtas”. Roma 10:9 1. Aminin mo na ikaw ay isang makasalanan. Roma 3:10 2. Talikuran mo ang iyong mga kasalanan (magsisi). Gawa 17:30 3. Manampalataya ka na si Kristo Hesus ay namatay para sa iyo, nalibing at nabuhay namagmuli. Roma 10:9-10 4. Sa pamamagitan ng panalangin, tanggapin mo si Hesus sa iyong puso bilang iyong Tagapagligtas. Roma 10:13
MANALANGIN KA NG GANITO Panginoon, ako po ay isang makasalanan at nangangailangan ng kapatawaran. Nanampalataya po ako na nadanak ang dugo ni Hesus at Siya ay namatay sa krus para sa akin. Tinatalikuran ko na po ang aking mga kasalanan. Tinatanggap ko po si Kristo Hesus sa aking puso bilang aking Tagapagligtas. Amen. Kung tinanggap mo si Hesus bilang iyong Tagapagligtas, ito na ang simula ng iyong bagong buhay kay Kristo (Roma 8:1). Ngayon: 1. Basahin mo ang iyong Biblia araw-araw upang makilala pa ng lubusan si Kristo Hesus. 2. Makipag-usap ka sa Diyos sa panalangin araw-araw. 3. Manambahan ka sa isang simbahan na pinapangaral si Kristo at ang Biblia ang tanging pamantayan. 4. Ibahagi sa iba si Kristo Hesus.
