After another great morning of worship through music, we were inspired with the topic of Reloveution. Drew Richy (Student Ministries Assistant Pastor) challenged us with the Truth and the intended priority of the greatest command.
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”(Mark 12:30-31)
No matter how crazy busy our lives may be, Drew speculated that it would only take a few minutes and a couple key questions to understand where a family’s priorities lie. If one were to evaluate schedules and checkbooks they could quickly see what gains the most focus.
As parents and grandparents, we have a responsibility to pass on the greatest priority possible to our children—the love of God. If you were to ask your children or grandchildren what the one thing is that is most important in your home, what would that one thing be? Is it Christ?
With that said, a revolution (reloveution) is needed to draw the battle line against flowing into the culture and fight again the current to prioritize our love for God. What might that look like in your home? What would it take to have the peace of mind that when your child leaves home they do so with the knowledge and the security of Christ at the center of their lives?
