The Blessed House

Today’s devotional in the Love Expressed series is about having a Christ centered home.  In your decisions as a family, do you seek first to listen to God? Does your family put following what God says above all else?
A personal relationship with Jesus Christ is the cornerstone of marriage, giving meaning and purpose to every dimension of living.  Your family values help others know what is important to your family. They shape the way we act, talk, and live.
A meaningful prayer life is essential in maintaining a Christ-centered home. It is impossible to overstate the need for prayer in the fabric of family life. In good times, in hard times, in moments of anxiety, and in periods of praise, share this wonderful privilege of talking directly to our heavenly Father with your family. 
The Bible provides us with an incredible resource! GOD tells us in His Word how to live together in peace and harmony. Everything from handling money to sexual attitudes is discussed in scripture. A family that depends on scripture for solutions to the stresses of living has a distinct advantage over the family with no faith.  
In a Christ centered household, Christ is the Head of this house, the Unseen Guest at every meal, the Silent Listener to every conversation.  Make a place for the presence of GOD in your home by leading prayer and worship with your family.
