LOVE CHANGES FAMILIES

When you know that you are loved by God, it changes you, your relationships and your family.

Notes And Next Steps

Ephesians 6:1-9 + Part 8 of the series “Masterpiece in Progress: Ephesians"

When you know that you are loved by God himself, it changes you, your relationships and your family.

How much a person in each of these roles believes and practices God’s love determines how they treat others.

Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord. (Ephesians 6:4)

Children, obey your parents in the Lord … Fathers, bring [children] up in the training and instruction of the Lord … Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord. (Ephesians 6:1,4,7)

The entire environment is changed by God’s brighter light that he shines like flipping a light switch, like the sunrise on a new day.

How can your family experience healthy change?
