It's for Your Own Good
In our current series, Restoring Foundations, we are discovering biblical truths about 5 fundamental realities that affect every aspect of our lives. This week, we are finishing our look at Reality #3, God Designed Gender, Sex, Marriage and Family. God ordained the individual, the family and marriage, the government and the church for His purpose. These are foundational institutions but the nuclear family is fundamental to all of God’s plans. But we as a society have abandoned God’s standards and His plans in this and so many other areas. His statutes are portrayed as bondange and deprivation when the opposite is true. If we adhere to His plan for humanity, we will find ourselves set free, blessed and happy.
'And the LORD commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the LORD our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day.' Deuteronomy 6:24 KJV
Our Creator knows what is best for us and He gave us guidelines for that very reason. Our ability to speak the truth in love comes directly from His heart of love and mercy and grace. Let’s live our lives by God’s standards as we tell those who are broken and confused about their great value and the power of Jesus to set them free. We will begin looking into Liberty, God and Government next week. Hope to see you there.
