Bless This House – Part 1
Hunger and Thirst for Righteousness
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
In your home, what do you hunger for?
What doesn’t work?
– Legalistic Christianity
– Lukewarm Christianity
What does work?
– We are not just a Christian family, we are a Christ-centered home.
You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.
You God are our God, earnestly we seek you; we thirst for you, our whole family longs for you…
Psalm 63:1 (edited toward the family)
Help your family see God as loving, approachable, and involved.
“You should create an environment where your kids want to have discussions about God so it’s not something they feel they have to do but something they want to do.”
Mandy Groeschel, 17 years old
Three ways to create hunger for God:
1. Involve God in your daily conversations.
2. Make church non-negotiable.
3. Show how seeking and serving God is fun.
…then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve… But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.
