    Healthy Homes Have Healthy Rhythms.

    “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

    Shaped by Prayer

    Shaped by Prayer

    Healthy Homes are shaped by prayer.

    How Should We Pray?

    1. We should pray like a child. (vs. 9)

    “Pray then like this: Our Father in heaven…”— Matthew 6:9

    - Our Father has a family

    - Our Father knows what we need.

    - Our Father is over all.


    2. We should pray with a heavenly hunger. (vs. 9a–10)

    “Hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”— Matthew 6:10

    - For Our Father’s Name to be Honored

    - For Our Father’s Kingdom to Come

    - For Our Father’s Will to be Done


    3. We should pray for our earthly needs. (vs. 11–13)

    “Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our debts as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.”
    — Matthew 6:11-13

    - Provision

    - Forgiveness

    - Preservation

    The Foundations of a Healthy Home

    The Foundations of a Healthy Home

    “Those who come into our homes should sense the presence of God.”
    — Billy Graham

    Healthy homes are built on healthy disciples.

    1. Healthy disciples set their hearts and minds on Jesus.

    “If then you have been raised with Christ seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.”
    — Colossians 3:1-4

    When We Are In Christ…
    Following Jesus shifts our seeking.

    Following Jesus transforms our thinking.

    2. Healthy disciples take off the old.

    “Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. On account of these the wrath of God is coming. In these you too once walked, when you were living in them.”
    — Colossians 3:5-7


    Sexual sins crumble the home.

    “Can a man carry fire next to his chest without his clothes being burned?”
    — Proverbs 6:27


    Social sins crumble the home.

    “But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices…”
    — Colossians 3:8-9

    “…and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator.”
    — Colossians 3:10


    Prideful sins crumble the home.

    “Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all.”
    — Colossians 3:11

    3. Healthy disciples put on the new.

    Build the home by reflecting Jesus.

    “…compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience…”
    — Colossians 3:12

    “…so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.”
    — Ephesians 2:7

    “…bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.”
    — Colossians 3:13

    “And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.”
    — Colossians 3:14

    Build the home by resting in Jesus.

    “And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.”
    — Colossians 3:15

    Build the home by rejoicing in Jesus.

    “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.”
    — Colossians 3:16

    True joy transcends circumstances.

    “And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”
    — Colossians 3:17

    Easter 2024

    Easter 2024

    “It’s not that I’m afraid of dying, I just don’t want to be there when it happens.”
    — Woody Allen, Actor

    Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?”
    — John 11:25-26

    1. The Problem: Sickness and death.

    2. The Tension: The delay.

    “Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. So, when he heard that Lazarus was ill, he stayed two days longer in the place where he was.”
    — John 11:5–6

    “So the sisters sent to him, saying, ‘Lord, he whom you love is ill.’ But when Jesus heard it he said, ‘This illness does not lead to death. It is for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified through it.’”
    — John 11:3–4

    3. The Solution: Jesus’ response to the problem.

    “Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die.’”
    — John 11:25-26

    Jesus brings a future event to the present.

    Jesus makes a doctrine personal.

    4. The Question: Do you believe?

    “As no one has power over the wind to contain it, so no one has power over the time of their death.”
    — Ecclesiastes 8:8 (NIV)

    Never Quit

    Never Quit

    Healthy churches never quit fighting for the faith.

    1. Flee.

    “But as for you, O man of God, flee these things.”
    — 1 Timothy 6:11a


    2. Pursue

    “Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness.”
    — 1 Timothy 6:11b

    Separation without consecration leads to isolation.


    3. Fight

    “Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.”
    — 1 Timothy 6:12

    “The laborers held a tool in one hand and their spear in the other.”
    — Nehemiah 4:17


    4. Be Faithful.

    “I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who in his testimony before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, to keep the commandment unstained and free from reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which he will display at the proper time—he who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, who dwells in unapproachable light, whom no one has ever seen or can see. To him be honor and eternal dominion. Amen.”
    — 1 Timothy 6:13-16

    “Those who endure to the end will be saved.”
    — Matthew 24:13

    “Be faithful unto death, and I will give you eternal life.”
    — Revelation 2:10

    “Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.”
    — James 1:12

    “If we endure, we will also reign with Him.”
    — 2 Timothy 2:12


    Persevering to the end is evidence of salvation.

    “They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out, that it might become plain that they all are not of us.”
    — 1 John 2:19


    The faithful live in awe and wonder of God’s greatness.

    “…which he will display at the proper time—he who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, who dwells in unapproachable light, whom no one has ever seen or can see. To him be honor and eternal dominion. Amen.”
    — 1 Timothy 6:15-16

    True Contentment

    True Contentment

    Healthy churches find true contentment in their pursuit of godliness.

    1. Pursue godliness.

    “If anyone teaches a different doctrine…”
    — 1 Timothy 6:3

    “...he is puffed up with conceit and understands nothing. He has an unhealthy craving for controversy and for quarrels about words, which produce envy, dissension, slander, evil suspicions, and constant friction among people who are depraved in mind and deprived of the truth, imagining that godliness is a means of gain.”
    — 1 Timothy 6:4-5

    Godliness is directed reverence.

    2. Pursue godliness with contentment.

    “But godliness with contentment is great gain, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content.”
    — 1 Timothy 6:6-8

    Godly contentment is not a change in circumstance, it’s union with Christ.

    “Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”
    — Philippians 4:11-13

    Godly contentment is not detachment from stuff, it’s devotion with the Savior.

    “But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.”
    — 1 Timothy 6:8-10

    “The love of worldly possessions entangles the soul and keeps it from flying to God.”
    — Augustine

    Godliness with contentment is great gain.
