THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME
Dr. Ernest L. Easley
June 20, 1999
Today we begin a new summer series of messages under
the heading: There’s No Place Like Home.
Now some say that with sadness. I don’t know anything
sadder than a home filled with shouting and pouting.
I’m talking about a home where tension is so thick you
could cut it with a knife! Where everybody is on
edge! A home where King Conflict rules! You see...
There’s No Place Like Home. Now while some say that
with sadness... others say it with gladness. Now... I
don’t know anything sadder than a home filled with
shouting and pouting. And I don’t know anything
better than a home filled with laughter and love. I’m
talking about a home filled with joy and peace! A
home that’s more like a refuge than a concentration
camp! Where Jesus is Lord! Where prayer is spoken
and the Bible is read!
I’m talking about a home where the husband loves his
wife and the wife loves her husband and they both love
the Lord! And I want to say to you Fathers on this
Father’s Day that you sir are the key! If things
aren’t right at your home... most likely it’s because
you’re not right! Now don’t get defensive with me.
Don’ sit there and try to rationalize why your home is
in the shape it’s in because of your wife or children.
Now... they may be a factor... but Father’s... the
buck stops with you.
In fact... the English word “Father” in the verb form
mean “the founder... to be the foundation... to
author.” You Fathers are the authors of your home!
And God wants you to author a home where Jesus is
Well on this Father’s Day Sunday... I want to invite
you to join me in the Ephesians chapter 6. We’re
continuing our series of messages under the heading:
There’s No Place Like Home. And I pray God that you
can say that with gladness rather than sadness... a
smile rather than a frown!
