Faithfully Sharing The Everlasting Gospel
The Ministries of Our Church
Throughout history families have formed the basic unit of society. Ellen White wrote: “The family tie is the closest, the most tender and sacred, of any on earth” (The Adventist Home, p. 18). Yet throughout history Satan has attacked families—through polygamy, adultery, sibling rivalry, homosexuality, pornography. As families fracture, so do the individuals involved.
Thankfully, God’s work focuses on preserving and restoring families. The Bible provides numerous examples of God’s restorative power, such as the woman caught in adultery (John 8:1-11) and the prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32). Furthermore, God uses family relationships as symbols of His relationship with us. Jesus repeatedly referred to God as “Our Father” and Himself as “the Bridegroom.”
He wanted to communicate that God, like a good father, feels forever connected to us and desires to bless and save us. And Jesus, like a loving husband, treats us with forgiveness and devotion. The book of Hosea ends with the words of the Lord to His people: “I will take you for my wife forever; I will take you for my wife in righteousness and in justice, in steadfast love, and in mercy” (Hosea 2:19).
Empowering Families to Shine for Jesus
Let your light so shine before men, so that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in Heaven.
