The Importance of Cultivating God’s Love in Christian Families

Do you have evidence that the love of God is dominant in your family presently? This is a significant aspect where numerous Christian families require prayers and liberation. In their homes, the love of God no longer exists, which has led to the celebration of the devil and its associates causing more harm regularly.

It is not acceptable for families to lack love, as those who do not have love in their family do not have an understanding of God, who is characterized by love. As a result, it is crucial to make every effort to welcome God into your family. When God is present in a family, there is a range of positive qualities, including love, peace, joy, happiness, and forgiveness. Before proceeding any further, it is necessary to assess the type of love that is present in your family.

“Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? Do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? Do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect”

(Matthew 5:43-48).

Having love only for those who reciprocate it is the most minimal form of love. If you don’t take action to address this, your partner will ultimately suffer as a result of this deficient love, as you can’t give what you don’t possess. A perfect love from God is necessary to have a successful marriage and to reach heaven.

Families play a crucial role in the makeup of communities, villages, and nations. As such, what occurs within a family is significant. The family serves as a setting where spiritual experiences, love, endurance, tolerance, knowledge, and obedience are cultivated among family members, especially between spouses. If a husband and wife do not possess the love of Christ within them, their failure extends to the broader society.

“And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others”

(Ephesians 2:1-3).

“For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace”

(Romans 8:6)

A natural man is spiritually dead and misses God’s perfect mark or standard. Such person is a child of disobedience and cannot be a child of God regardless of any church title or accomplishment.

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God”

(Romans 8:14-16).

Such person always fulfills the desires of the flesh and follows whatever the mind determines because the person is a child of wrath and not a follower of Christ. You need to be born-again before you can manifest God’s love in your marriage. You need salvation that would deliver you from your sinful nature and it comes through Christ alone.
