We’ve all heard this phrase before: “As long as you live under my roof...” Right? Maybe you heard it one too many times as a kid growing up.
The home should be the most influential place on planet Earth. And the person who potentially has the greatest influence on a child is a parent. A parent’s behavior (not advice) determines if their child wants to be like them or with them once they are older. But the fact is none of us have perfect parents or families.
Parenting is a great privilege and responsibility, and like the old saying goes, “More is caught than taught.” So, what does it look like to raise a godly family, a godly home? What does it look like to live... under my roof?

To raise good kids, for them to have a faith that lasts, you must have your identity, authenticity, character, and greatness rooted and strengthened in Christ. Every other ground is sinking and shifting.

No other relationship on planet Earth, including the parent-child relationship, can adequately illustrate our union with Christ the way a marriage does…This is the strongest reason why marriage cannot be redefined and must be protected at all costs.

Truth without grace is mean. Grace without truth is meaningless. You need both to foster a healthy home. If you can't speak the truth in love, you will eventually resent the people you love.

The home has the greatest potential for influence on a child's life. What happens in your home is more important than what happens at work, at school, or even at church.
You are engaged in a battle for your mind, a warfare per se. Most of life’s battles are won or lost in your mind, and your life is always moving in the direction of your strongest thoughts. The life you have is often a reflection of this. So, what are you to do with these unwanted thoughts or occupants that live in your mind? How can you have a positive life when you have a negative mind? Can you evict them? Can you give them a 30-day notice? How do you overcome those unwanted thoughts that live in your head … rent free?

You don’t have to live in the grip of anxiety and fear. You can allow God’s Word and the Holy Spirit to work in you. Your rationale, logic, and emotions can be shielded from the illogically absurd, ridiculous, unfounded, and crazy thoughts that try to grip your mind.

God wants you to have a sound mind. Acknowledge your stronghold and deal with it. Surrender your life to embrace the life and truth of Jesus. You can choose your way to life and truth.
Sometimes the idea of sharing the gospel with everyone can feel overwhelming. But what if we simplified it? What if we narrowed this seemingly impossible task to just one. One person to connect with, talk with, and invest in. One person in your life whom you can lead to Christ. Doesn't seem too overwhelming and scary, right? So... who's that one person you can begin to introduce Jesus to? Everyone has a plus one, who's yours?

Any time God leads you to do anything meaningful, generous, significant, something that benefits others and is eternal, expect opposition. Satan does not bother anyone who is not a threat. When you step out, the devil tries to step in to stop you from doing the work of God.

If the local church is the hope of the world, how can we be sure to continually provide hope? When we look for opportunities to go outside of our comfort zone, God can use us to impact and change lives forever. Are you ready to bring hope to a hurting world?
