…I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, (Ephesians 3:14, 15)
Families are studied in the plant kingdom, animal kingdom and among the human beings. Families will continue in the coming eternity in a way that human understanding cannot comprehend now. Jesus spoke about it to some extent.
Family is not a concept that God has left for man to invent and define.
Family is God’s idea, designed by God, for man to discover and understand. It can be maximized if people study God’s laws for the families and every person learns to fulfill their role.
This institution established by God has divine purposes. Family is God’s way of the human race protecting God’s order of creation. It is God’s wisdom that family be a platform for love, care, protection, security and everything a human being needs to maximize the spiritual life and all talents deposited in a person to its full potential.
The demonic realm will try to deceive the rationale and thinking of human intellect. It will try to hijack the emotions and passions of people to put in disarray the pattern of God for family by any means.
It would be a tragedy for Bible believing Christian families to see sons and daughters getting married into same sex marriages. The Indian Church has a great and powerful spiritual responsibility. The Church must arise in prayer before such trends spill over into the Indian scenario. The Church must stand up to teach and act against these intrusions.
A family that prays together stays together. A Church with strong families is a strong Church.
