HOME IMPROVEMENT, PART 2 OF 2
THE PRINCIPLES OF A HAPPY FAMILY
Randal L. Ross
PSALM 127:1-5
LUKE 15:11-27
11-7-99


INTRO: THERE IS A PLACE OF FAMILY BLESSING AND
PROTECTION

A. THERE IS NO QUESTION THAT OUR FAMILIES ARE UNDER
ATTACK AND PRESSURE.

1. there has not been in this century a time when the family
is under greater stress, attack and demands than today.

ILL. NEVER HAVE THE PRESSURES, DEMANDS AND STRESS
ON THE FAMILY BEEN GREATER.

1. NUMBER ONE CHALLENGE AND CONCERN IN
AMERICA.

2. THE STORMS OF LIFE HAVE NEVER BEEN GREATER
AGAINST THE HOME SINCE THE TIME OF THE ROMAN
EMPIRES COLLAPSE.

3. IF YOU ARE STRUGGLING IN YOUR FAMILY YOU ARE
NOT ALONE. WE ALL ARE

B. BEING A CHRISTIAN DOES NOT EXEMPT OUR FAMILIES

C. THERE ARE NATURAL AND SUPERNATURAL CAUSES

1. THERE IS THE NEGLECT OF GOD'S PRINCIPLES FOR
OUR FAMILY.

2. THERE IS THE SUPERNATURAL CAUSE; SATAN
HATES THE FAMILY

a. we war not against flesh and blood...our weapons
are not carnal or natural but spiritual

D. GOOD NEWS TODAY; BUT THERE IS A SOLUTION IN GOD!
GOD IS FOR US

1. GOD HAS PROMISED US OUR FAMILY CAN
SURVIVE; HE HAS THE PLAN

2. WE ARE GOD'S FAMILY; HE LOVES US AND HE
FIGHTS FOR US! INTERCEDES -- HE HAS THE POWER.

ROMANS 8:26-27
(26) Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not
what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh
intercession for us with groan ...
