The Christian Home by Ptr. Cornelius Stam
On the basis that “man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God” (Luke 4:4), we read some small portion of the Bible before every meal, and had family devotions before retiring at night.
Result: all eight children have blessed the dear dad and mother who led them aright, morally and spiritually, and best of all, taught them the importance of trusting in the Savior who died for all our sins. More: five of the children and many of the grandchildren have given themselves for full time Christian service, and have become pastors, college deans, Christian writers and missionaries in various parts of the world.
This is not because we are one whit better than others, but because we have experienced the help and grace of God in our lives. And it all began as, one day, a young American, like Joshua of old, came to a decision and declared:
“As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
"The Christian Home" is taken from the devotional email entitled "The Christian Home" I received from Berean Bible Society. I claim no credit to this post. Just want to share this wonderful devotional to those who can read it. Be blessed!
