Family Devotions
« on: February 08, 2007, 08:19:31 AM »
How many people here lead their family in bible study and prayer?

I'm curious to know, as it seems to be something that most people pay lip service to, but fail to actually perform.

John, you're correct that most talk about it but never do it. I know a pastor who claims that it is impossible for a husband and wife to be thinking about divorce while they are praying together.

Wow, what a thought provoking concept.  :eek:

If two people (or more, if kids are included) are studying the scriptures, then it seems that it would build more of a unity in the family, simply because of the message(s) that is within the Word.  

I know a woman who goes to church every Sunday and every Wednesday night, so you'd think she really religious, right??? When I told her that I listen to the bible on CD every night when I go to bed, she looked at me like I was strange.  I guess that we're different because I consider the Word to be the most important life-saving and life-giving thing in my life.  I refuse to give it up!!!!

The word!!!! :preach:
"So then, stand firm and hold to the traditions :o which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter" (2 Thessalonians 2:15).

Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
