I suppose we all know what it is to fight with our family.  Even the best of families fight each other. 

 

One of the most famous figures of the 20th century was Martin Luther King, Jr.  He was a preacher and a dreamer.  He dreamed that the day would come when, as he put it, “my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”  For his dream and labors, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

 

After his death, his three surviving children were the heirs of his estate.  When money ran low, the two sons proposed that they sell their dad’s peace prize and Bible to generate some cash.  Estimates put the value of those items at some $20 million.  Their sister protested and eventually it went to court. 

 

That’s ironic.  Fighting over the peace prize.

 

But it’s not just the King family that fights.  We all fight with each other.

 

But in this new series we are calling you to put your sights on a different enemy.  Let’s stop fighting with our family and start fighting for our family!

 

The call to fight for our family comes straight from the Bible.  Nehemiah 4:14b says, “Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your homes.”

 

Let’s fight!

“Fight for Your Family”

Nehemiah 4:14

 

  1. Your family has an adversary
    1. Recognize your adversary
    2. Respond to your adversary
  2. Your family has an ally
    1. Pray to God
    2. Post a guard
  3. Your family has an aim
    1. The aim is your family’s good
    2. The aim is your Father’s glory
