Restoring hope in the lives of families through the knowledge of God’s Word.
Proverbs 13:12 tells us that hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when the desire comes it is a tree of life. And we know, according to Hebrews 11:1, that faith is the substance of things hoped for and that without faith we do not please God or resist the devil (Hebrews 11:6; 1 Peter 5:8–9).
According to John 10:10, the devil comes to steal, kill and destroy, but Jesus has come to give us life—and life more abundantly, thus hope is critical.
THE PROBLEM AND THE ANSWER
Family has been under attack since day one. Adam and Eve got fired from their job, evicted from their house and their kids started killing each other. God knew man would go stupid and He provided an answer through His Son, Jesus Christ, the Living Word of God.
Jesus did not find a church; He built one (Matt. 16:18 NKJV).
It is no different with people—we don’t find a life, a marriage, a career, or a family—we build one.
Anything that gets built takes tools. It is the Word of God that provides these critical tools. Tools such as the ability to communicate, the power to get wealth, the wisdom to train up the next generation, the ability to achieve real intimacy in a relationship.
In a recent study done by the Pew Research Center 76% of adults said that their family was the most important element of their life.
If that is so, why do we see so many families falling apart? In the last 40 years the number of divorces is up and the percentage of people getting married is down.
Simply stated, the second law of thermodynamics says that anything left on its own will decay. That means what we are not working on and building to get stronger is getting weaker.
If people don’t have the hope that is found through the knowledge of God’s Word they won’t get the message of building a marriage, family and life.
There is a great need for this message that focuses on strengthening marriages and families.
There are no perfect families out there because there are no perfect people, but there are strong ones. And they become strong by building their faith through the knowledge of God’s Word.
