MEMORY VERSE:

“ And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.” Luke 19:8

 

 

 

BIBLE PASSAGE:

Luke 19:1-10

 

 

 

INTRODUCTION

Restitution is commanded by God to enable us follow peace with all men. It is an act of putting right what has been done wrongly. It is divine restoration of all things to their original order. In this lesson, we shall consider what restitution is and its blessings.

 

 

OUTLINE
1. WHAT IS RESTITUTION?
2. RESTITUTION AT VARIOUS DISPENSATIONS
3. THE BLESSINGS OF RESTITUTION

 

 

 

WHAT IS RESTITUTION?
Restitution is an act of putting right what has been done wrongly, restoring what has been taken wrongly and repairing or giving any equivalent to loss or damage. This is a very important step for every believer for a clear conscience and good testimony. The doctrine has been taught at various dispensations.

 

 

 

RESTITUTION AT VARIOUS DISPENSATIONS
Restitution is not a new doctrine. It has been in practice before the law. Moses gave certain laws of restitution – Lev. 6:1-6, Lev 24:21; Num. 5:6-8; Ex. 22:1-5.

 

The doctrine was also confirmed up to the time of the kings and prophets – 2 Sam. 12:1-6; 2 Kgs. 8:1-6 – and to the Church age, right from the time of Jesus Christ and the apostles until now – Lk. 19:8-10; Philem. 1:7-12.

 

 

 

THE BLESSINGS OF RESTITUTION
A heart of restitution has the following to benefit from God:

 

Favour from God – Lk. 2:52.

 

Speedy answers to prayers – Lk. 11:9.

 

Fearlessness – Ps. 27:1.

 

Healing – Ps. 107:20.

 

Anointing for exploits – Acts 10:38.

 
Hearing God from time to time.

 

 

 

Protection – Ps. 105:15.

 

 

Heavenly provisions – Ps. 132:15-16.

 

 

 

CONCLUSION
Restitution is an avenue to make your ways right with your fellow man while salvation makes your ways right to God. One is not complete without the other. Therefore, prayerfully take steps to put right those things you have done wrong.

Marital Illiteracy

Marital Illiteracy

Hebrews 13:4: Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

Hebrews 13:4: Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

 

 

One of the biggest challenges facing couples today, whether married or unmarried is marital illiteracy. Unfortunately because we now have many highly academic literate in the present world, who has been fed with theories and calculative and liberal approach to facts and figures, many see no reason why their parents voice of reasoning should be heard least alone considered in matters that relate to love and relationships. To them, they are just old fables and ancient philosophies that are not worthy of the liberalism preached by today’s civilisation.

 

 

 

Many marriages and family structure fail or otherwise fall short of reaching their full potential because the couples never learn what marriage is really all about and how to handle challenges of family life.

 

 
With many parents failing their children and society serving as shield for marital class drop outs, it is hard to say what will become of the marriage and family institution in the next near decades…. perhaps, it might be reduced to the state of education institutions we currently have in many African countries. Our generation is breeding far more academic morons than ever witnessed in history. With many so called academic scholar not being able to differentiate between what is productive and constructive statement to social hooliganism with no respect for themselves and their future. Many of our young adults are largely lacking in social skills and making poor and harmful choices on daily basis. Yet many parents are sitting on the fence wearing an ‘I don’t care hat‘.

 

 

The thing is, family is the focal point of many would be successful future. Arguable, maybe…. but with proof, definitely. We will be deceiving ourselves if we say all the time that, ‘what will be will be‘, there are thousands if not of millions of children who has ended up becoming what they were not meant to be just by the influence of choices their parents made. And I ask why? Why are we destroying our future just because we can’t learn some basic principles and live by them? Why are we afraid to learn what is key to our happiness in the now and then? If we don’t learn, how do we teach? Family relationship is a school, a learning environment in which all its members can grow and develop over time.

 

 

Family does not demand perfection, more like it will never be, but it must be given priority through constant and thoughtful act of forgiveness and doing and upholding what is right and fair whether it is convenient or otherwise. Family is an institution peopled exclusively by nature, not by choice. It’s a gift, that we must all do our very best to protect. Why not start with you by acquiring the right mix of knowledge and understanding of the marital principles and its application and let the change begin with you. We all hope for a happy ending, and sure we can.

 

 

 

A happy marriage and family life cannot be left to chance. Just like building a house, a successful marriage and family relationship is the product of careful planning and deliberate design, the right material and of course, but this time with the right and skillful builder. If the Lord does not build the city….. Psalm 127

God Uses People Who Are Humble

God Uses People Who Are Humble

 

 

Judges 6

 
The Book of Joshua represents an emotional high for the nation of Israel, as God’s people conquered Canaan and took possession of the Promised Land. Conversely, the Book of Judges is a huge letdown, as the Israelites’ reliance on God falters and opposing nations begin to torment them.

 

 
Even then, God was gracious, sending 13 judges to galvanize Israel and fight back against its many foes. One of them was Gideon, an unlikely choice for a hero. But God used him to make a difference and turn Israel back toward God. Gideon is also a picture of how God can use us to change the world today.

 

 
PRACTICAL PRINCIPLES
1. God uses people who are humble.

We tend to imagine that God uses the talented, the superstars, and the beautiful people to do His work. But truly, He is looking for ordinary people, ones who see themselves for who they are. That way, God can do the extraordinary through them, just as He did with Gideon. We see who we are, but God sees what we can be.

 

 

 
2. God uses people who are faithful in the little things.

Before Gideon could take on the Midianites, God asked him to do something smaller—destroy his father’s idol and altar to Baal, build an altar to God, and offer a burnt sacrifice. Some people want to cross the ocean to be a missionary, but God might be calling you to simply cross the street and share with a neighbor. He might be calling you to serve at church in the children’s ministry or parking lot ministry. Jesus said that if you are not faithful in the small things, He will not entrust you with the large things (see Luke 16:10).

 

 

 

 
RELEVANT REMINDERS
Why did God take Gideon’s army of 10,000 and trim it down to 300? One reason is that He wanted to make it clear that this was His victory and not something that Gideon accomplished.

 

Secondly, He did it to find the truly committed, leaving behind the scared and the half-hearted. God has not called us to an easy life as believers. Being a Christian is difficult, even in the best of circumstances. But God can do more with 300 committed believers than He can with 10,000 wishy-washy people. He is looking for those who are faithful, obedient servants, willing to change the world.

 

 
APPLICABLE ACTIONS
In the Book of Acts, Paul and Silas’ ministry was described in this way: “They turned the rest of the world upside down and they are disturbing our city.” May God help us to disturb our world, our homes, and our neighborhoods. Not in an obnoxious way. Not in an irritating or unnecessarily offensive way. But in a godly way where they can see how God has changed your life. It is time to step out and be a true follower of Jesus Christ.

 

 

 

 

Thank You Jesus.

Marital Abuse

Marital Abuse

Ephesians_5-25: Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it

Ephesians_5-25: Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it

 

 

MEMORY VERSE:

“The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.” Psalms 11: 5

 

 

 

 

BIBLE PASSAGES:

Malachi 2: 16-17,

 

 

 

1 Pet 3: 7-12

 

 

 

 

INTRODUCTION
Marital abuse, whether or not it involves physical violence, is a one-sided oppressive relationship where one spouse uses unacceptable methods to maintain unhealthy control in the home. Domestic abuse affects people of all races, age, gender or background.

 

Sadly, it is an evil that now manifests in Christian homes and the church of God. Zephaniah 1:9 says, ” In the same day also will I punish all those that leap on the threshold, which fill their masters’ houses with violence and deceit. “

 

Abuse in its different manifestations is the most destructive tool that can be used by anyone against another person. Let us examine what the scripture says about DOMESTIC VIOLENCE OR MARITAL ABUSE.

 

 

 

 

OUTLINES

1. PHYSICAL ABUSE
2. VERBAL ABUSE
3. THE BIBLE CONDEMNS VIOLENCE AND DOMESTIC ABUSE

 

 

 

 

A. PHYSICAL ABUSE
Physical abuse is physical torturing of a spouse’s body in order to subdue and control the partner. Assault or physical abuse is the most obvious form of domestic violence and also the most lethal. It is animalistic, physically damaging and emotionally traumatising – Jer. 22: 3, Mal. 2: 16-17, Isa. 58: 3-4

 

 
Physical abuse can include the following:
• slapping, kicking, shoving, and choking.
• pinching, forced feeding, pulling hair.
• punching, throwing things, burning (e.g. with a cigarette).
• beating, strangling, use of weapons (gun, knives, or any object).
• physical restraint, pinning against wall, floor, bed, etc.
• reckless driving, etc.
Assaults often start small, maybe a small shove during an argument, or forcefully grabbing your wrist, but over time, physical abuse (or battering) usually becomes more severe and more frequent and can result in the death of the victim.

 

 

 

 

B. VERBAL ABUSE
Verbal abuse is using spoken and written words that damage or injure people’s feelings, erode their self-esteem and can fill them with fear and uncertainty, as well as hatred – Gen. 30: 1-2; Eph. 4: 29-31
i. Constant criticism

 

 

ii. Degrading remarks

 

 

iii. Lies and Deception – Matt. 5: 37

 
iv. Name calling

 

 

v. Accusations

 

 

vi. Threats

 

 

vii. Railings and harassments

 
viii. Abusive words or cursing

 

 

 
Verbal abuse like threats to hit or kill the other person, to leave, or take the children away, or withdraw financial support would result into an emotional trauma. It causes the other partner to live in fear.

 

 

 

C. THE BIBLE CONDEMNS VIOLENCE AND DOMESTIC ABUSE
a. God hates strikers. The servant of the Lord must not strife – 2 Tim. 2: 22; Isa. 58: 3-4; Jer. 22: 3, Mal. 2:16-17; Psa. 11: 5; Zeph. 1: 9; Eph. 4: 31; Psa. 37: 9; Jam. 3: 14-16
b. Requirement for leadership – 1 Tim. 3: 1-4, Tit. 1: 7.
c. Words spoken can be a form of violence

 

 

CONCLUSION
Abuse in its different manifestations is the most destructive tool that can be used by anyone against another person. Most sadly, all these types of abuses deeply scar the emotions of a person and usually greatly alter their perception and their ability to live life to its fullest. However, there is hope in Jesus. He has come to heal the broken hearted.

 
Psalms 72: 14. He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious shall their blood be in his sight

 

 

 

QUESTIONS
1. Mention five types of abuses in the home.
2. What should you do if you are being abused by your spouse?
3. What can an abuser do to stop abusive attitudes?
4. What should the church do?

 

 

 

 
Jam. 3: 10

  • A child of God guides his tongue.

 

 

 
Psa. 37: 9

  • Marital abuse is evil. Refuse to be cut off by God.

 

 
Matt. 5: 21

  • Marital abuse could lead to murder. Avoid it.

 

 
Mal. 2: 16

  • You must avoid marital abuse because it is treachery.

 

 

 

 

2 Tim. 2: 22

  • The heart is the centre of marital abuse, watch it.

 

 

 
Eph. 4: 29

  • God commands against verbal abuse

 

 

 
1 Pet. 2: 1

  • Getting out of violent abuse requires your efforts.

 

 

 

 

Thank You Jesus!

Christian Marriage. Partnership

Christian Marriage. Partnership

 

 

MEMORY VERSE:

  • “I am the vine ye are the branches. He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing” – John 15:5

 

 

 

 

BIBLE PASSAGE:

1 Cor. 3: 5-10

 

 

 

INTRODUCTION

As believers, we are co-labourers with God. We need God in the business and God needs us, but we need God more than He needs us. May the grace to make ourselves more available in partnership be given to us as we study at His feet in Jesus’ Name.

 

 

 

 

 

OUTLINE
1. THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE VINE AND THE BRANCHES
2. THE ROLE OF THE HUSBAND AND THE WIFE IN PARTNERSHIP

 

 

 

 

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE VINE AND THE BRANCHES
God is the vine and we are the branches. The vine needs the branches and the branches need the vine more. You need God and God needs you, but you need God more than He needs you. God is the Creator of Heaven and the Earth. God can do well without you but without God you can do nothing – John 15:5. God, in His supremacy, with all His power and might, is faithful in playing His part and in the keeping of His covenant – Num. 23 : 19; Ps. 62:11.

 

 

 

 

 

So, for you to enjoy the maximum benefit of the relationship, you must be:
1. Saved – John 3 : 3 – 5.
2. Faithful – Heb . 11: 6.
3. Holy – Heb. 12:14.
4. Obedient – Is. 1:19.
5. A cheerful giver – 2 Cor. 9: 7.

 

 

 

 

 

THE ROLE OF THE HUSBAND AND THE WIFE IN PARTNERSHIP
God instituted marriage for a purpose but it takes the effort of both the man and the woman for the marriage to work. Both of them must work towards a common goal. An excellent example is procreation. This is virtually impossible except a man and a woman come together for this common purpose. Then, God will now shower His blessings on them – Gen. 1:22; 1 Cor. 3: 6; Amos 3:3.

 

 

 

 

 

HUSBAND’S ROLES
He is the human head of the family – Eph. 5: 25-33.
He must be able to rule his family well – Col. 3:20.
He must love his wife- Eph. 5 : 25.
He is the priest of the family. He must establish and direct the family altar – Eph. 6:4; Col. 3:20-21.

 

 

 

 

 

WIFE’S ROLES
She must be a good help meet to her husband – Eph. 5:22-24.
She must love and respect her husband.
She must be submissive to her husband.
She must adorn herself with holiness and sobriety.

 

 

 

 

 

CONCLUSION
In partnership, there is need for team work with one goal, one vision and one purpose since both the husband and the wife are God’s representatives on earth. The day of accountability is coming, so, they must sacrifice everything possible to keep the relationship together in unity of purpose and with one spirit, all to the glory of God and their own blessing.

 

 

 

 

QUESTIONS
1. Mention the role of the husband in a marriage relationship.
2. Mention the relationship between God as the Vine and we as the branches.

 

 

 

 

 
1 Tim 2:11-15

  • God’s order for the Christian home is clear enough.

 
Gal. 3:13

  • Homes turned to Christ are redeemed from every curse and become a blessed one.

 

 
Pro. 31:10-31

  • Are you a virtuous mother or wife?

 

 

 
Heb. 12:7-8

  • Do not neglect discipline in your home.

 

 

 

 
Titus 2:9-10

  • Let every member of the home, including servants, be alert to their responsibilities.

 

 

 
1 Sam. 3:13

  • God will not spare parents who fail to correct their children who err.

 

 

 
2 Tim. 1: 5

  • Let us take a cue from Lois and Eunice as parents.

INTRODUCTION
A Christian family is an institution where parents are bound together by Christian love, where children are happy and spiritually instructed. It is a home where the Lord Jesus is the supreme head of the home.
A Christian family is one that radiates Christ, welcomes strangers and dispenses hospitality. A Christian family consists of God- fearing parents and children. The Christian family is the bedrock of the nation and the glory of the Christian church. May God grant us Christian families.

DUTIES OF THE FATHER
It is ordained by God that the husband should be the head of the home – Eph. 5: 23. For example, Abraham commanded his household faithfully – Gen. 18: 19. This is not to say that the wife is a slave but a help meet taken from the man’s side to remain a companion. It is the duty of the husband to love his wife as himself – Eph 5: 25, Col. 3:19.

 

This is the love expressed in 1 Corinthians 13, i.e. loving in health, sickness, poverty and prosperity. The husband is required to be faithful to his wife. God demands honesty, frankness and faithfulness between partners in a marriage.
It is the husband’s duties to comfort his wife in times of sorrows – I Sam. 1: 8. He ought to consult with his wife on business matters and issues that affect the home, for they are a team. By the virtue of marriage, they have become one – Mk. 10:8. The Christian husband should always put God first in his life – Luke 14: 26.
He is the priest of the home and he is responsible to establish a family altar for daily worship.
He is to listen and lead his wife with wise counsel – 2 Kgs. 4:8-10, Eccl. 4: 9-11.

 

 

 

 

DUTIES OF THE MOTHERS IN THE HOME
Mothers are tremendous assets, hence, the major duty of a wife is to love to serve Jesus Christ – Lk. 14: 26. The wife is to obey her husband – Eph 5: 22. Sarah is a good example to follow – 1 Pet. 3: 6. Wives are not only to respect their husbands but they are to love them too – Titus 2: 4. Husbands need a great deal of affection, too. The woman is not to be adorned with ornaments – 1 Tim. 2: 9-10. Instead, wives are to be adorned with good work, including modesty and sobriety, meekness and have a quiet spirit – 1 Peter 3: 4-5. A Christian wife must be trustworthy, hardworking and be an early riser – Prov. 31: 11-15. The responsibility of the wife is great but Jesus will give grace to those who ask Him.

 

 

 

 

 

THE DUTIES OF BOTH PARENTS
Parents are to realise that their children really belong to God – Ps. 127:3-5. Therefore, parents who love their children shall find favour with God – Tit. 2:4. Parents should bring their children to the Lord at an early age- Matt. 19: 13-14 – to train and discipline them for the Lord- Pro. 22:6.

 

One way of making their task easy is to bring the children to Sunday school and church. Teach them Bible stories at home and give them a part in family prayers. Teach them to obey God and the law of the country – Deut. 32:46.

Parents are to provide for their children- 1 Tim. 5:8 – and should be careful not to provoke their children to wrath –Eph. 6:4. Above all, let godly parents pray for their children. Pray that they would be saved to overcome sin.

 

 

 

THE DUTIES OF THE CHILDREN
Children are to honor their parents – Ex. 20: 12, obey them – Luke 2: 51, and pray for them. They must also return their parent’s love, for love is a two-way traffic. They must be sober and show good examples in all things – Tit. 2:6-7.

 

Children must constantly remember that the children of today shall be the parents of tomorrow.

 

 

 

CONCLUSION
The secret of a successful Christian home is in the family altar, where Christ is crowned the Head of the home.

Love is the second secret. Parents should also remember they are all children with a loving Father above who constantly demonstrates His love.

 

 

 

QUESTIONS
1. What are the duties of the children in the family?
2. Mention the duties of fathers in the home.

 

 

 

 
Matt. 22:37

– Love of God is the greatest commandment. Obey it.

 
Mk. 12:31

– Do you show love to your neighbours? If not, you are a disobedient Christian.

 
1 Jn. 4:7

– If you do not practise love, you are not born of God and do not know Him.

 
Heb. 13:1

– Brotherly love should not cease.

 
John 3:16

– Love is sacrificial. Such a love as that which induced God to give His only begotten Son to die for the world cannot be described.

 
Eph. 5:25

– Love with a pure, ardent, self-sacrificing love as Christ loved the church.

 
Titus 2:2

– Be sound in love, whether old or young.

Pastoral Counsel And Roles In Marriage

Pastoral Counsel And Roles In Marriage

Ephesians_5-25: Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it

Ephesians_5-25: Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it

 

 

 

MEMORY VERSE:

“But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.” Proverbs 1:33.

 

 

 

 

BIBLE PASSAGE:

Proverbs 1:1-10

 

 

 

INTRODUCTION
Counseling is the process of giving pieces of advice or useful suggestions to other individuals by a qualified person in order to help them solve their problems either in the present or for their future. Everyone needs such pieces of advice or counsels at a particular point in time so as to guide against taking steps of error. The Scripture says that “… in the multitude of counselors there is safety.” (Proverbs 11:14b). Therefore, as marriage is a sacred institution that requires divine guidance before being entered into, such counsels should be given a prime of place.

 

 

 

 

OUTLINE
1. CHARACTERISTICS OF PASTORAL COUNSEL
2. ROLES OF PASTORAL COUNSEL IN MARRIAGE

 

 

 

 

CHARACTERISTICS OF PASTORAL COUNSEL
i. Pastoral counsel as divine instruction is usually aided or enhanced by the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit in the life of the genuine Counselor as in

( a) Word of Wisdom,

(b) Word of Knowledge,
(c) Discerning of Spirit1 Corinthians 12:7 – 8.

 

 

 

 
ii. Pastoral counsel, which is usually from seasoned men of God, is like reality therapy – Pro. 15:22.

 
iii. Pastoral counsel is not motivated or influenced by personal interest or propaganda sentiments as in the case of the withdrawal of Micah from David as wife by King Saul – I Sam. 25: 44.

 

 
iv. It is such an advice given after having prayerfully requested from and listened to God by a seasoned minister of the gospel for inspirational guidance – Ps. 5: 3; Deut. 29:29; Daniel 9: 3 – 4; 2 Cor. 1: 11.

 

 

 
v. Pastoral counsel seeks to foster the happiness of both the person being counseled and the counselor – Prov. 15:23; Prov. 27:9.

 

 

 

ROLES OF PASTORAL COUNSEL IN MARRIAGE
i. Just as devastating and destructive problem is to one’s life, so greatly relieving and comforting is the timely divine or pastoral counselRuth 3:1 – 3.

 
ii. It acts as veritable tools that cannot be brushed aside in the process of choice or decision making – Joel 3:14.

 

 
iii. It gives no room or chance for gamblers in the church where the counseling unit for intending Christian couple is being handled or well coordinated by genuine ministers of God. i.e. it prevents young men or women from dating more than one suitor at a time – Prov. 13:20; Ps. 73:24.

 

 
iv. It brings about decent take-off of courtship between two children of God as the Pastor becomes the mediator between the intending young couple – Ps. 11:3; Isaiah 58:12.

 

 
v. It shows the young contemporary adults that marriage is not bondage or an unavoidable entanglement – Jer. 23:22; Acts 20:27-28.

 

 

CONCLUSION
Pastoral counsel is usually borne out of divine inspiration and is meant to show the possible ways out of certain problems. It also guides on what to do so as not to fall into the same problems over and over again – Proverbs 11: 14.

 

 

QUESTIONS
1. Mention characteristics of pastoral counsel in marriage.
2. What are the roles of pastoral counsel in marriage?

 

 

 
Prov. 24:6

– God will be our wise Counsellor.

 

 

 
Prov. 15:22

  • In the multitude of counsellors, purposes are established.

 

 
Ps. 11:3

– May our foundations never be destroyed.

 

 

 
Amos 9:11

– God will restore your former glory.

 

 
Jer. 23:22

– Good counsel turns us from evil ways.

 

 
Prov. 20:18

– The presence of many counsellors brings peace.

 

 
Prov. 11: 14

– In the multitude of counsellors, there is safety.
