Family: The Greatest Mission Field

Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth.  Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.  They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court.

Psalm 127:3-5

Charlotte, NC – Can you imagine what will become of our society, and even our nation, if future generations cease to produce biblical families?

Instead of dwelling on the woes of tomorrow, what can you do to help restore families? The truth is that if you want to see families restored, then it must start with you. Don’t wait for your pastor or church to do something about the family— don’t sit around and complain about the problems that are prevalent in our society. Do something about it.

Be that person— be that godly couple— willing to step up and step out to help those who are in need. There are so many single homes who need godly couples to come alongside them and help them; to comfort them and to give them advice; to take on some of the challenges they face alone.

You see, we have overlooked the greatest mission field in our culture today: the family. We need to be reminded that family is the first and most meaningful institution created by God. But don’t start and stop with yourself, as if you take care of your family and that is enough. Rather, start praying for more mentor couples to take more families under their wings; start praying for more churches to renew their commitment to disciple more families in the Word of God.

If we would reset our lives to the strengthening of families, in just a few short years America would see a harvest of strong families living out their faith for Christ. We pray you will be a part of God’s restoration plan for families in America.
