We are now finished with the book of Galatians and are moving on to our new theme for the year 2019: HOME.
God has led us to focus on this vital area of the lives of all of us, the home. We will be working on various thoughts regarding home.
First, we want to highlight the family and the discipleship that is to be done in and through the home where children are led by the primary disciplers, the parents. Second, we want everyone to see that this is a God ordained mission that is given by the Lord to continue to have generations after ours to love the Lord with all their hearts and minds and souls. Third, we want to emphasize that the parents are not alone in their venture but that the church family is there to help and assist them. And fourth, all of us are to recognize that God, the creator of all things, is truly sovereign over all and that He is in control and brings hope to all.
With that being said we can see that Psalm 126-127 speaks of restoration of joy, peace and hope in the people of God. Also when we make new disciples, sowing the seeds of the Word of God through our tears of compassion, that He, our Savior and Lord, will no doubt allow the fruit of our sowing to reap a great and bountiful crop of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. We see that the personal homes God has granted us will be filled with hope, love and joy as well as the “cooperate home,” the church, when we are faithful to witness for the Lord and disciple those who are new believers in Him as their personal Savior and Lord as well as those who are needing to grow in their faith as believers.
Let’s first just read Psalm 126 but then we will dive into Psalm 127.
