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 You Can Have a Happy Family.

You might wonder about the worthiness of setting a goal for your family’s happiness.

Happiness is certainly not the goal of the gospel for our lives.

Obedience to God must always take precedence over the fleeting pleasures of sin, we are told in Hebrews 11:25.

But if we define happiness as a sense of well being, of contentment, of joyful purpose in living, then happiness is, at least, what most people are looking for in life.

In today’s Scriptures, Jesus had not dismissed happiness as a superficial desire but rather focussed on how an individual and a family can find true happiness.

We dont have to be anxious about life, although we often are.

There is a way to find happiness in the midst of our living.

And Jesus wants us to find it.

But first we need to recognise that we can miss happiness in a frantic effort to gain it for our family.

Until next time

Stay in the Blessings
