Familia: What's A Family For?

Reverence for God gives a man deep strength; his children have a place of refuge and security. 
Proverbs 14:26 TLB

One standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. 
Ecclesiastes 4:12a TLB

These commandments . . . 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.
Deuteronomy 6:6-7 NIV

The synagogue leader . . . and his whole family believed in the Lord . . . and were baptized. 
Acts 18:8 GW

“As for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.”
Joshua 24:15b TLB

Start talking. Find a conversation starter for your group

Share your best memory with your family.

Start thinking. Ask a question or two to get your group thinking.

How can keeping a close relationship with family have a positive impact on your life?

How does the quote, “You can pick your friends, but you can’t pick your family.” Make you feel?

Start sharing. Choose a question or two to create openness.

Why is it important to keep Jesus number one priority in your family?

Do you have family members or children that are not in a
relationship with Jesus?

How do you believe God is using you to lead your family dynamic?

Start praying. Be bold and pray with power.

Pray for God to be at the center of your heart and mind, and to be a good example for your family this week.

Leader: Take time to listen to what the Holy Spirit is doing. You can pray this prayer together, join in groups of three to pray for each other, or pray over an individual as a group as led by the Holy Spirit.

Start doing. Commit to these steps and live them out this week.

Ask God to reveal the next step for you and your family. Maybe it’s an apology, an overdue phone call, getting baptized, or volunteering at the Vineyard together!
