Eric Wallace in his book “Uniting Church and Home” lists several benefits to the home discipleship model. I will list and discuss these benefits over my next several blog posts to help us consider the urgent need for families to live out the biblical mandate of home discipleship.
Benefit 1: A household approach helps to heal the hurting, to clear up the confused, and to rebuild broken lives for victory. He states that by opening up our hearts, homes, and lives to others we provide a haven for healing. This benefit results when families are active in opening their homes to others in fellowship and discipleship. We therefore live out what we are learn from God’s Word.
Prayerfully consider how you and your family can reach out and show the love of Christ to those in your community and workplace. Then take action and live the great commandments to love the Lord with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength and to love your neighbor as yourself.
