Each week, Bec and Jeziel ask local leaders and pastors to share an inspirational message. This week Derek Gerrard from Local Community Church talked about how we can serve God through our home.
Pastor Derek has started the year moving house and has noticed a lot of people around him, have started working from home again. “It got me thinking about the context of home. What does our home look like in a way we can serve the Lord.”
“Joshua said to all the people…But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”- Joshua 24:2, 15
This atmosphere can be created through artwork, decorations, the music you play and the movies you watch. Use your home to show others kindness and love. “Who are people you can invite to love and share meals with.” What does the start of each day in your home look like? Does your day spiral downwards because you’re running late and stressed out. Or does your day spiral upwards after prayer or reading the Bible?
“Praying through your house is a good way to create the atmosphere of God in the centre of what you are doing.”
