Living as a Family on Mission
The 3rd circle of relationships, that Paul addresses in Ephesians 5 and 6, is the family. This circle is important for us to address, because it is possible for people to grasp the concept of the gospel but fail to apply then in the home. As a disciple maker Paul stressed the importance of home and gave clear direction. He understood that we cannot compartmentalize our relationships, that the Holy Spirit wants to influence every sphere of a believers life, and the best place to make disciples is in our own families. I have always been convicted that it would be my biggest failure to win the world but lose my family.In this sphere we model love in the way of Jesus.
