《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” (Jos 24:15)
Meditation one: Who is the master of you and your family? If Christ is the head of the household, do you invite Him to be the master of your family? Or make Him a servant of your family? Today, most of the family crisis is in the dispute of “master”. Who should listen to whom? Who should submit to whom? Only when we humbly let Christ be the master and the ruler, the problem will no longer be a problem. Want to be a blessed home of God? The key is to have Christ in power at home.
Meditation two: If Jesus is coming to your house today, do you have a room for Him? Let Jesus come to our house as a guest is one thing, and to let Him be the master is another thing. Let us stop just treating Jesus only as a baby in the manger, but rather receive Him and ask Him to be the master of the life for the entire family. If Jesus cannot become the master of our whole lives, then He cannot be called as our Lord!
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank You for being the vision of my life. You are the faithful Lord who keeps Your covenant and Your steadfast love. Please help me, not only to make “Christ is the Lord of my family” as the core belief of our entire family, but also to pass it on to the entire kinsfolk so that it can be passed down from generation to generation; Not only it is a family who worships the Lord but also a family who serves the Lord. I pray in the precious name of the Lord Jesus, Amen!
