Our lives are temporary here on earth so are our homes. In the book of Genesis, God said let us make man in our image and our likeness. God created us in his image, which means we are all unique and special. We all have our different talents. Some are good at cooking, while others have the gift of hospitality and others the gift of teaching, and some the gift of counseling, etc. 1 Corinthians 12:12 For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. This shows us that we all have different gifts that can also be used to glorify and reflect Christ in us and our homes.
When you come of knowledge that nothing comes from you but from Christ, you begin to see God in everything you do and learn to welcome Him into your home and begin to bless others with the love of Christ.
Psalm 127:1 Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it, except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
Here Are 5 Ways To Help Make Christ The Center of Your Home
- Fill Your Home With Prayer
Letting Christ into your home by prayer will not only bring peace and also allows Christ to dwell in your home. I believe that the first step is to ask God to be the center of your home. Have you taken the time to ask Christ to take over your home? Whatever the situation might be, we can not do it on our own, we need Him to help build our home. Christ is near to all who seek His face and call on Him. Why not start today by calling on Christ. James 4 You do not have, because you do not ask.
- Fill Your Home With His Word
Gods word is a ”lamp to our feet and a light to our path” Psalm 119:105
There is power in the word of God and there is victory in His word. Learn more about Christ in your home. Make it a duty to read the Bible in your home and teach your Kids that Christ is the God of the universe. The book of Hebrews 4:12 says the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. God’s word is a guide onto our path, so we should never lean on our understanding. Hang some scripture around your homes let your home be filled with his word.
- Fill Your Home With The Love Of Christ
Christ loves us unconditionally. You need to love others with the love of Christ. Stop keeping records of wrongdoings. Forgive people because after all Christ first did. In the book of 1 Corinthians 13, you will come to know that Christ gave us love irrespective of our shortcomings. We are not perfect and Christ knows this, that is why he gave us his mercy to help us through. But we must learn to become like him who created us in His image and likeness.
- Let Grace Fill Your Home
Let your home be filled with grace and forgiveness. We all have fallen short of the glory of God. We all have been freely given why not start doing the same today? Extend the act of forgiveness to others and let your home be filled with understanding and peace. Let go of judgemental behavior, take time to pray for people to know Christ. For by His grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
- Let Your Home Be Fill With Discernment
We all are sinners but Christ gave his life for us that we might have life and have it abundantly. In times of pain, trouble, stress, betrayal, and many more, learn to fill your home with God’s word. Have time with him in that quiet place and be alert to be able to decern His spirit. Watch what you say when angry because“Reckless words pierce like a sword but the tongue of the wise brings healing” (Proverbs 12:18) Yes it is hard to pray during a fight and it can even become harder when you need to pray with that person. Learn to be slow to anger and learn to strive for God’s discernment and peace.
