KINGDOM WORK AFFECTS YOUR HOME

By Aanna Greer

Being a kingdom worker is about loving the King and living out
the reality of the gospel in your every day life. Here are five
ways you can do that at home:

Love God

“And you must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all
your soul, and all your strength.” —Deuteronomy 6:5 NLT

To love God well, you must love God in private as well as in
public and this starts in your home. Find times (first thing in
the morning or right before bed are great options) to read the
Bible and to pray heartfelt prayers to God. These two small
actions, if done consistently, will help you to love and know God
better.

Be a blessing

“…I will bless you…and you will be a blessing to others.”

—Genesis 12:2 NLT

The gospel is all about God blessing us and making the wrong
things in our life right again. We can live out the gospel by
finding the “wrong” things in our homes and making them right
again. Whether it’s cleaning a dirty bathroom or being a shoulder
to cry on for a younger sibling, you can be a blessing to your
family, just as God has been a blessing to you.

Say good things about Jesus

“I will praise you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all
the marvelous things you have done.” —Psalms 9:1-2

Kingdom workers make Jesus famous. Talk about the things you like
about Jesus and the good things he’s doing in your life. Talk
about Jesus to your Christian family members and it will
encourage their own faith. Talk about Jesus to your unbelieving
or struggling family members and you can be a witness to how
amazing God is.

Don’t give up

“So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we
will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” —Galatians 6:9

Being a kingdom worker is hard work and you’ll make lots of
mistakes. But don’t give up on the awesome task of loving God and
living his way on earth. He didn’t give up on us, even when we
were lost and far away, so let’s not give up doing the good work
of loving God and blessing others. Remember, because of what
Jesus did to rescue us, we no longer need to be perfect—just
faithful.
