“Rules For Christian Households”

20 04 2011

Greetings I bring to you my dearly beloved friends in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ Our Redeemer! Dear friends, as we look into another topic for the day, let us take a look at the above topic. In these present world there are so many rules that we have to follow and we do follow because if You and I are not going to follow the rules we have to face the consequences! In today’s posting we will see “Rules that has been set for Christian Households.” Yes, believers in Christ, how many of us Today are following and abiding by the rules set for Christian Households? Let us take a look at what the word of God has to say about this rules?

Dearly beloved friends as we take a look at the above topic again, let us be really serious about it my friends. Many Christian families are being invaded by the devil! That is why at times we see that even in our Christian homes there are cases of divorce, children going against the parents, no understanding between husband and wife and parents and children! What is happening to our Christian Households? Where have we open doors for Satan and his cohorts to come in and invade our families and children? Friends, the word of God says that in the last days there will be “Godlessness in the Last Days!” As the word of God is written in 2 Timothy 3:1-5 “There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful,unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God-having a form of godliness but denying its power!” Yes, my friends, here is where we have open the doors to Satan to come in and invade our families and children! Is it at all worth it my friends if our Christian Household families are broken down by the things listed above?

Dear friends, let us take a look at the list of rules that has been set for our Christian Households! As we look at the book of Colossians 3:18-25 as it is written “Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.” Yes, that is the call from God to all Christian women out there. Please do not get mistaken that when you submit to your husband you are a slave to him. No, that is not it! There are a lot of women who think that they are the “head of the family!” That is wrong in God’s sight! God created man first then only did God created woman when he took a rib from the man and made the woman. In the beginning itself God wanted women to submit to their husbands. In the book of Ephesians 5:22 it is written “Wives submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.” So wives of this present world please know where is your position in the family? So, wives stop being a “queen who wants to control” but be a “queen” who is loved by her husband because of her submission to him and that is pleasing to the Lord!

Dear friends, as we go on, let us see what the word of God has to say about the husbands? In Colossians 3:19 as it is written “Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.” Yes, husbands out there! Are you being harsh, violent and abusive to your wives today? Hello! They are women and stop being harsh, violent and abusive against them! They are not rough and tough as you men are, please! They may look tough and brave as you see them but in reality they are meek, humble and gentle women. I wonder how some men can really treat their wives so harshly and violently! Do you think that the women can take all the punching and beating that you put on her? Please, she is God’s creation and a “gift” to you to keep you company and be your helper! That is why God made Eve because he saw that Adam was lonely and he needed a helper! In Ephesians 5:25 it is written “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy cleansing her by the washing with water through the word and to present her to himself as a radian church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies.He who loves his wife loves himself.

Dear friends, children are also not left out of this rule. As it is written in Colossians 3:20 “Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.” Yes, children you are to obey your parents no matter what the cost! You are to “honor your father and mother” which is the first commandment with a promise, that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on earth.( Ephesians 6:1) “Fathers, do not embitter your children,or they will become discouraged instead bring them up in the training and instructions of the Lord.” Yes, my dear friends, these are all the rules as believers we should follow in our Christian Households, so that Satan cannot come in and make a mess in our Christian families! Have a Blessed Lent Season.

God Bless.
