Back to series

Hey everyone and welcome to Refinery Life Church.

This month we are working our way through a series titled “The Christian Family, Living for Christ in the Present.”

Marriage and the family are under great stress today.

The church has a vital stake in the husband / wife relationships and the parent / child relationships of those who call themselves believers.

Today we are talking about Enemies of the Family.

How do Christians walk?

We walk in love, as Christ taught us to walk.

This is a high ceiling, but it is nevertheless exactly what the Lord expects of His people.

When we fail, He is willing to work with us, He knows how to forgive.

But make no mistake about it, God wants us to grow continually in the fullness of life in Jesus Christ.

This may sound like an admonition for personal Christian living alone, but it also precedes a lengthy passage on family relationships.

Therefore we should apply these truths to the family as well as our personal lives.

We have already identified friends of the family, but we should be aware of enemies of the family as well.

While it is true that certain television shows and movies can be detrimental to the health of the family, these are not our primary enemies.

We cannot isolate ourselves from the world if we are to have any impact on it.

The real enemies of the family are those that arise out of our own disobedience to the Word of God.

We can name these enemies by looking carefully at our Scripture passage.

Until next time

Stay in the Blessings
