How To Move From Kid CEO to Parent CEO, Pt.2

You can listen to this message right now by clicking here

As we discovered yesterday, having a kid-centric household is not God's design. In God's design, the flow of the home looks like this: God --> Husband/Wife --> Child. We discovered that the foundation of the home is to keep our lives grounded in God's Word & His House. This week we're using the ever-clever acrostic, K.I.D.S., to learn how to do just that. The Bible teaches us in Proverbs 26:12, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” You need to have a vision for your family which means you need a vision for your marriage! The next letter in the acrostic is "I" & it stands for...

I- Intimacy that’s INTENTIONAL.

Revelations 2:4-5 says, "But I do have something against you! And it is this: You don't have as much love as you used to. Think about where you have fallen from, and then turn back and do as you did at first.” While this scripture is in reference to a church that had fallen away from God, it is also an accurate depiction of what can happen in a marriage. With people divorcing at a 50% clip, couples need to be more intentional about keeping the relational fires stoked.

Here are 2 commandments for marital intimacy that you should consider introducing into your life this week.

1. Thou shall date your mate.
Dating teaches your kids that the marriage relationship is important. This breeds security for them and greater intimacy for you and your spouse. You can spend $40 every week or 2 on a date or $200 an hour to an attorney.
2. Thou shall keep your kids & technology out of your bed.
God's desire is that the marriage bed would be pure & active! That's difficult to accomplish if little Jimmy, your computer & T.V. are there night after night. Put your children to bed, in their own beds, and spend time together! Turn off the T.V., put down the computer and pay attention to each other, ALONE!

Remember, the best thing that you can ever do for your children is have a great marriage! If you're a single parent, the best thing you can do is have a healthy house and a heart for God's House.

Question- What are you going to do this week to be more intentional about intimacy in your home?

Dream Bigger.  Start Smaller.  Ignite God's Vision For Your Life!  @StevenFurtick

The theme for year 3 of Decade of Destiny is, "GREATER," based on the best-selling book from Steven Furtick.  The Bible says in John 14:12, "I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father (NLT)."   2012 marked the beginning of a 10 year vision for our church called, "Decade Of Destiny."  Since that time, God has been gracious to our church as we have witnessed hundreds of people make decisions to follow Jesus, dozens more baptized and powerful ministry occur in environments geared toward children, youth, young adults, married couples and people from all walks of life.  This past year was an exciting year of INCREASE for Freedom Life.  We expanded the reach of our church by adding a campus in Centr…
