FAMILY… We all have one… and many of us want a better one! While some of us loved our 'growing up' years… others of us couldn't wait to move out and start fresh! Either way… there’s something inside us all that would love to have THE PERFECT CIRCUS… when it comes to our FAMILY! The problem is… there’s REAL… then there’s IDEAL… then there’s a BIG GAP IN BETWEEN! A TENSION that we all must come to terms with and push through if we ever want to keep moving towards the STANDARD that Jesus gave to us which defines A PERFECT CIRCUS! I hope you’ll do whatever it takes to join us for this New Series… MY FAMILY CIRCUS! We’ll be discovering what Jesus thinks is the IDEAL WAY to survive a FAMILY full of Lions… Clowns… and Bearded-Ladies! Don’t Miss It!
Below is a sneak-peak for THIS Week… (1) The Perfect Circus
The NT's Teaching on FAMILY… Focuses on the VALUE of WOMEN and CHILDREN!
-A Revolutionary Concept to that Day and Age (and…) to OURS as well!
NT Overview of FAMILY…
1. HUSBANDS… LOVE your Wives and be CONSIDERATE to them!
2. WIVES… SUBMIT to your Husbands!
3. CHILDREN… OBEY your Parents!
4. DADS… Don't IRRITATE your Kids!
In EVERYTHING that JESUS did… He TAUGHT and POINTED to an IDEAL… but He REFUSED to CONDEMN… anyone who fell short!
When it comes to our FAMILY…
Will we either… EMBRACE the IDEAL? (Or…)
We will lose sight of the IDEAL… to feel better about where we ACTUALLY ARE…?
FOLLOWERS… We don't have the PERMISSION to DISMISS the FAMILY IDEAS or IDEAL that Jesus gave to us! (Because those same VALUES are true today!)
