Fruitful Family


Sermon Text: Gen 1:28 28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”

Sermon Title: Fruitful Family

Point 1: Fight for your Family. The enemy attacks Gods center of gravity – Family... Gen 3: 1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”

Point 2: Fine tune its future. The family is always about the future... Psalm 127:5 Blessed is the man   whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court.

Point 3: Focus your family. Family life can become overwhelmingly too busy... Joshua 24: 15b But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” 

Ruth 1:16 But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.

Point 4: Refine the relationships.  Relook at every relationship in your immediate family/extended family... is  Eph 5: 21,28,33 21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. 28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 33 However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.

Point 5: Fortify your Family. You must equip your family...Deut 6: 6-8 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.
