Isn't it satisfying to walk into a church where you can actually feel the love of God flowing? We should experience this same atmosphere in our home.
Men, when it does not happen in our home, how can it possibly happen in our church gatherings? When we take care to create the atmosphere of God's love flowing in our home, each family brings their portion of this love to the corporate gathering. This creates a glorious and explosive experience for all to enjoy. In this presence of love, the worship and preaching takes on a whole new meaning of life and everyone feels refreshed.
On the other hand, if we allow negative moods, arguments, fightings, and squabblings to dominate our home, we will carry this same spirit to the corporate gather. This squelches the atmosphere of God's love from flowing.
Men, I believe we have a solemn responsibility to make sure that each one in our family is not deliberately or ignorantly stifling God's love from flowing. This is why we must put into operation in our home the things that assist the release of God's love--Morning and Evening Devotions, encouraging each family member to personally take time to daily see the Lord,. and putting on the whole armor of God in order to resist bad moods, tempers, hateful and critical language, and the worldly media that feeds the flesh.
To have God's love flowing in the home is far too important to dampen down or squelch out.
