What is a FAITH Family?

Every family faces impossibilities in this day in which we live. We serve a God who loves to show Himself strong through impossible situations. FAITH is the answer. FAITH in Him to do the impossible. Families Achieving Impossibilities Through Him! A Faith Family is a family where the Father has won the hearts of his family and is the spiritual leader in his home; the Wife is her husband's helper and is a joyful mother of children; the Children have a desire to obey their parents; the Teenagers give their hearts to their parents rather than their friends; and last but not least, the whole family depends upon God for their provision. This is a real Faith Family! Sounds impossible doesn't it? The Bible says, "For with God nothing shall be impossible" (Luke 1:37).

We are the Gilley family and we are learning how to be a Faith Family.  Our family isn't perfect nor have we arrived at some spiritual plateau that makes us better than anyone else. Our desire is to be a FAITH Family and we are learning how to be one day by day as we apply God's Word to our lives and follow His ways. Any family can be a FAITH Family by following this simple plan: God's Word presents God's Wisdom producing God's Ways preparing God's Witness. Building God's Word into our lives is the most important activity we can spend our time doing today. It is an eternal investment that pays eternal dividends especially if we build God's Word into the lives of our family. The eternal benefits of applying God's Word to our lives also produces many earthly blessings we can enjoy right now. God is faithful! Applying His ways to our lives makes a difference. Our Heavenly Father  has proven to be patient, gracious, sensitive to our cries to Him and above all Faithful to His promises. We love Him and desire to serve Him by encouraging as many families as we can to read His Word and live their lives according to it. We have found that building God's Word into our lives is the only way to stand against the impossible situations we face. The Bible is true. It has become the final authority for our family. "So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God" (Romans 10:17). "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him" (Hebrews 11:6).

 We sincerely believe we are living in the last days and feel a strong spiritual burden for families who are not ready. It is our belief that strong families make strong churches. For families to be strong spiritually, the husband and father must be encouraged to fulfill his God-given responsibility to be the spiritual leader in his home.  The wife and mother must assume her God-given role as helper and minister to her husband and children. Sons and daughters must be trained and prepared to enter the ark of safety, the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus said that the society and culture of the last days would be as it was in the days of Noah. God warned Noah to prepare his family to get in the ark to protect them from the coming judgment. Noah's unwavering obedience to God's plan was a mission of faith that assured his family's protection. God has warned fathers today of His imminent judgment. Many Christian fathers have not taken that warning seriously. Time is speeding by and many families are not ready for what lies ahead. "The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness, but is longsuffering to us-ward not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentence" (2 Peter 3:9). There is still time to prepare. "His mercy is great toward us and His truth endureth to all generations."
