FAMILY BUILDERS: Lessons for the Whole Family During Easter

Christians celebrate Easter as the anniversary of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. But the holiday also serves as a reminder to believers of all ages that they also are resurrected with Christ!

As Easter approaches, Family Builders encourages Christians to meditate on the meaning of their new life in the risen Christ and the glorious benefits that come with it. Along with benefits comes the responsibility to live according to God's Word and walk in His holiness—vital characteristics of the resurrected life. Failure to submit to the power of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God can prevent believers from receiving the benefits Jesus purchased for them through His death, burial, and resurrection.

Living in the Resurrection

As you meditate on the reality of the Resurrection this month, start by taking the time to realize that you, too, are risen with Christ! The scripture says, "Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on the earth" (Col. 3:1–2 NASB). One of the reasons you should consider things above is because in God's eyes that's where you are (Eph. 2:6). You are seated in a place of blessing and spiritual strength to live and walk in the newness of resurrection life.


Raising a Strong Family

When the Lord told Kenneth to begin traveling in ministry, we decided that I would stay home and provide a proper home atmosphere for our children. Raising children is a calling in itself. And there are many challenges involved.

I had to be both mother and father while my husband was gone. I kept the children in school and provided them with a good home. I also made sure they had a good church family.


Talk to Me

One thing that can cause a lot of problems in marriages is lack of communication. People have different personalities and ways of communicating. Some people are loud. Others are quiet. If a loud person gets hooked up with a quiet person, it's easy for conflict to start brewing.

Some families are just loud. Everything they do is loud. They talk loud. They have fun loud. And they fight loud. Other families are so quiet you could hear a pin drop in their homes.


Never Too Young to Know God!

Never Too Young to Know GodWith Denise Burns

Considering her contagious passion for ministering to children, one would never guess that Rev. Denise Burns once had other plans in life. “I wanted to study fashion merchandising. I always liked children, but I never considered pursuing children’s ministry,” said Rev. Burns, children’s minister of RHEMA Bible Church.

In First Chronicles chapter 28, David gave some final words of advice to his son, Solomon, “Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple of the Lord is finished” (v. 20).

Originally, it was a time set aside by our forefathers to give thanks to God for bringing them through a critical year. Today, Thanksgiving means different things to different people.

Instructing Your Children in the Ways of God

Instructing Your Children in the Ways of GodBy Kenneth W. Hagin

A home is not only a place where a family lives; but it is also a training center, with the parents as the primary instructors. If you don’t teach your children about God and His value system, most likely they won’t follow after Him and His ways. But before any effective instruction can be given, a solid relationship must be developed between you and your children.


Train Up Your Child

Train Up Your ChildBy Lynette Hagin

Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” How do you train a child? By establishing a relationship with the child. Unfortunately, we are living in a society today in which parents allow everyone else to train their children.

A Father’s Heart

A Father's HeartBy Kenneth W. Hagin

Luke 15:11–24 tells the story of what is known as the prodigal son. It is a story of a selfish, rebellious young man who acted in disobedience toward his father. Most Christians have heard a lot of teaching on the prodigal son but I want to talk about the father in this familiar passage. I want to look at his heart, his attitude and actions toward his son.
