10 Qualities of a Strong Christian Family

As a Christian, you may be looking for ways to strengthen your family and build a household that reflects your faith. Today’s message will explain the qualities and characteristics of a strong Christian family to you.

How Does GOD Want a Strong Christian Family to Be?

“But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female.’ ‘For this reason, a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, ‘and the two shall become one flesh’; so, then they are no longer two, but one flesh.” (Mark 10:6-8)

The LORD wants a family to be built on the foundation of a man and woman becoming one flesh through marriage. This union is meant to be exclusive and lifelong, with the couple leaving behind their respective families to form a new generation.

So, the following cultural practices do not originate from the LORD; homosexual marriage, adoption of children by gay partners, polyandry, refusal to give birth to children, lesbian marriage, transgender and the like.

Jesus Christ says by their fruits you shall know them, thus any church supporting such abominable practices above is not of GOD but of the Devil.

“But He answered and said to the one who told Him, “Who is My mother and who are My brothers?” And He stretched out His hand toward His disciples and said, “Here are My mother and My brothers!”

“For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother.” (Matthew 12:48-50)

Jesus Christ emphasized the importance of spiritual kinship, stating that those who do the will of God are his brothers, sisters, and mother. This highlights the qualities of a Christian family, which include a strong faith, a commitment to living according to God’s teachings, and a sense of unity and love among its members.

Ultimately, a Christian family is one that prioritizes its relationship with God above everything on earth and seeks to live a life that reflects the LORD’s values and principles of holiness.
