Does Jesus Live at Your House

<< Previous Index Next >>

The Christian Home

"Now it came to pass, as they went, that he enteblack into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.

"And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word.

"But Martha was cumbeblack about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.

"And Jesus answeblack and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:

"But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her."—Luke 10:38–42.


As far as I am concerned, there is nothing beautiful about a home that does not have Jesus in the center.

·        I have found that a home without Christ is a desolate, dreary, miserable spot.

·        All of the fine furnishings, all of the social gatherings cannot change a Christless home into a beautiful, happy place.

·        For a home to be its best, the presence of Christ must be there.

·        A simple poem comes to mind "Does Jesus Live at Your House?"


Yes, there are some homes that were once Christian, but they are no more.

And, there are some homes that have never known what it means to be Christian.

They have never honoblack Christ; they have never received Him.


The first great essential in the building of a Christian home is to receive Jesus.

He must be received into the heart of each member of the home.

This is not a superficial acceptance of the fact that Christ is the Son of God,

But it must be the experience of receiving Him as Saviour, which results in the new birth.


We must not deceive ourselves into thinking that a home can be made Christian simply by uniting with the church.

The homes of many church members are as hellish and miserable as the homes of out-and-out sinners.

Therefore, the first prerequisite to a Christian home is to receive Christ as Saviour.

After acceptance of Christ, there are still some things to do in order to make your home a Christian home.

Let me suggest some of them.

I.             HONOR THE CHURCH

A.            The Bible gives many good reasons why we should honor the church — a Bible-preaching, soul-winning church.

1.             We cannot ignore the commission of our Saviour. He has given us His command to go into all the world and preach the Gospel.

a.              Therefore, we should honor the church by becoming part of the attending, serving membership.

b.              The first step to a backslidden Christian life is to absent oneself from the house of God.

c.              I’m sure that one reason for the sinking condition of so many homes is the failure to attend the house of God.

2.             When I say that we ought to attend the services of the church, I speak of all of our weekly meetings.

a.              All of the Sunday services should be attended and the Wednesday prayer service.

b.              Too many people have a Sunday-morning type of religion.

c.              You can’t build a Christian home on anything as shallow as that.

d.              You cannot tie your home to the church of God by a single service on Sunday morning.

e.              There are 168 hours in the week; at least six of these should be given to the Lord, and as many more as we can.

3.             Mothers and fathers should not complain about the drifting condition of the children if they persist in staying away from God’s house.

a.              I can name a number of homes where the mother and father used to attend regularly and their children came with them.

b.              But today the parents attend only occasionally, and the children not at all.

c.              Parents reap what they sow.

B.            Second, we should honor the church by giving our money.

1.             Every child of God should be a tither,

a.              I believe that every home would be blessed materially and spiritually if the tithing plan were adopted and followed.

b.              God has had a plan in everything He has done, and He has a financial plan.

2.             We cannot prosper if we ignore God’s financial program.

3.             Find me a tither who is a beggar or is forced to depend upon welfare agencies for his food, shelter and clothing.

C.            Third, honor the church by giving your talents to the Lord’s work.

1.             There is a great need for workers.

2.             Some phases of our work suffer at all times because of the lack of faithful servants.

D.            If your home is to be a Christian home, then you must honor the church of Jesus Christ.


A.            You cannot hope to build a Christian home without daily looking to God’s Word.

1.             Almost every home in America has a Bible,

a.              but the Bible is read in few homes.

2.             Here is a rule for your home:

a.              The Bible should be read aloud in your home, in the presence of your family, at least once each day.

b.              Find the time best suited to the family and establish the rule that the Bible will be read each day at that time.

c.              It may be at the breakfast hour, or it may be at the evening meal, or it might be before retiring at night.

3.             But find the time when you will bless your home by the reading of the Word of God.

B.            A dusty Bible will never bring blessings to your home.

1.             Someone has said:      These hath God married, and no man shall part:

Dust on the Bible and drought in the heart.

2.             A clean, unmarked Bible is not a good testimony.

a.              The Bible is to be read, yea, to be worn out with much handling.

b.              When one copy is torn up, another can be purchased.

c.              But let your home be blessed by the reading of God’s holy Word.


A.            After the reading of the Word should come prayer time.

1.             You will find that serious, earnest prayer will put your home in direct contact with Christ.

2.             Prayer will drive out bitterness, harshness, and even infidelity.

B.            Prayer is the key to every needed thing.

1.             Prayer is the way to victory against sin.

2.             Prayer is the cord which binds us together.

3.             The more we pray, the more blessed and happy will be the home.

C.            Children should be taught the meaning of prayer.

1.             Prayerless young people come out of prayerless homes.

2.             I blame parents for failing in their responsibility to teach their children the meaning and need of prayer.

3.             The little ones need an example on the part of the parents so that to them prayer might be as natural as breathing.

IV.      Conclusion

A.            I believe you can tell the home where Jesus lives.

1.             You will find a blessed peace, a happiness, a gentleness and a love not found in the homes of the world.

2.             The storms may beat upon the Christian’s home, but it stands firm and fast.

3.             Sorrows may come, but it stands.

4.             The sun may refuse to shine for weeks and months and years, but still the Christian home has comfort and cheer.

B.            America needs Christian homes.

1.             As go our homes, so goes the nation.

2.             The Christian home contributes to peaceful living, curbs juvenile delinquency, lowers the divorce rate, kills atheism, and builds a wall of security about our nation which no enemy can tear down.

C.            Answer the question today, "Does Jesus live at your house?"

1.             If He has never enteblack, then let Him in today.

2.             If He was once there, then open wide the door again, and bid Him enter.

3.             Does Jesus live in your heart? If not, receive Him now.

"Does Jesus Live at Your House?"


"Does Jesus live at your house?"
I heard a child once ask:
Her little brow was furrowed
As she struggled with a task.

I saw her eyes were shadowed,
Her face marked with a tear;
The voice a wee bit wistful
For the answer she might hear.

"He used to live at our house,
With Mamma—Daddy, too.
But now He’s gone away somewhere.
I don’t know what to do;
For Daddy’s not the same today,
And Mamma laughs no more.
They never bother much with me;
They say I’m just a bore.

"It didn’t used to be this way
With Jesus in our home,
For every night my daddy came,
When all my curls were combed,
To help me say my bedtime prayer
(And Mamma helped me, too);
And they’d smile and tuck me in,
But now—they never do.

"Could you tell me where Jesus is,
For everything seems black?
We want Him in our house again;
We want Him to come back.
And when He comes we’ll keep Him,
For we truly need Him so—
If Jesus lives at your house,
Oh, don’t ever let Him go!"

The child then turned and left me
While I pursued my way
And thought of many home fires
That could be bright today.
Does Jesus live at your house?
How much these words portend.
Yea! On this question’s answer
Our hopes—our all—depend.
