“Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God" (Psalms 50:14 NLT)
as you “alter” your home to be your place of worship and praise and honor to God.
Make thanksgiving your sacrifice on your home “altar.”
Joining God in his work of "alter"-ing us to become more like Jesus in every way, and drawing each other to do the same, toward that Final Day!
"And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will
continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus
returns." (Philippians 1:6 NLT)
May the Lord Jesus fill your home with his very presence, and lead each of you to grow up into Christ, who is the Head of the Body! Enjoy!
-- Pastor Kevin Schuessler
God starts with an individual, calling him or her personally to be his own. How important it is to each receive him, listen to him, and follow him. As we listen and obey, we express our own love for him (John 14:21), and we impact those around us as well (Hebrews 10:24-25). So take a look at the Study Guides in the links below, and find out how much you enjoy him as you get to know him better!
The enemy HATES marriage and works to destroy it. God LOVES marriage, because he invented it. In fact, in the New Testament, he speaks of Jesus as the Bridegroom and his people as his bride (Ephesians 5:20ff). How important marriage is to him - your marriage and mine! In the links below, you will find Couples Activities to do with your spouse. As you do them, let your focus be on God and your husband/wife, and watch what God does to your union!
Forgive as the Lord forgave you (Colossians 3:12-13)
There are going to be times we hurt each other, if we are close. When that happens, the most life-giving thing to do is to ask for and give forgiveness to each other.
God has given husbands and wives the great privilege and responsibility of raising their children to know the Lord, to love him and to walk in his ways. We, at Awake, are committed to assisting you in this wonderful task, by providing Family Lessons that you can do together as a family. These activities will help you "unpack" God's Word for you today, based on the Sunday message. Feel free to adapt it to your kids' ages and learning styles. Also consider reaching out to another family or two, and invite them to do these faith-building activities together!

Families with preteens will find the Family Lesson especially useful, and adults and teens can consider the questions in the Study Guide and/or the Couples Activity.
