“I believe the family, a family after God’s heart, is a healing remedy for the earth.
Once the families are in place as established under God as He intended, it will cause a rippling effect, a healing, which will swing the earth back into harmonious rhythm. Then the family, the town, the city, the nations and the world will recognize as it says in Ephesians 4:4-6, ‘There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, in you all.’ We truly will all become that one family under God.
Am I being overly optimistic? Are we all so far gone that this change is obsolete? I believe not. God’s family is a healing remedy for the earth. For ‘in Him the whole structure (the family) is joined together harmoniously, and it continues to rise (grow, increase) into a holy temple in the Lord. In Him (and in fellowship with one another) you yourselves also are being built up with the rest to form a fixed abode (dwelling place) of God in the Spirit.’ -Ephesians 2:21-22 (Excerpts from “God’s Dynamics: Biblically Building Families”)
I believe we can and must do a restorative work on our families in order to change the culture of our society. So as each component in individual families are built up and strengthened together, then each family become components of a universal family – a family aligned under God. So it is with that optimism and in that hope that I pray for family love, unity, strength, growth and restoration. It’s important that we work together better, love each other sweeter, laugh a little harder, continuing to thrive in Lord.
Much Love & God’s Very Best!
