What does it mean to be called as a husband, a wife, a parent, a child? How does the grace of the gospel impact how we carry out our particular calling? How does God’s presence influence the struggles that families face?
Gene Veith joins forces with his daughter Mary Moerbe to explore these kinds of questions as well as the roles of calling and vocation in family life. Though we have little control over who is in our family (other than choosing a spouse and deciding to have children), God has placed us with specific people for specific reasons. Veith and Moerbe show how our roles are distinct and important to God’s plan for our lives—and that when we have a biblical understanding of those roles in our families, we can move away from common dysfunctions and toward forgiveness and healing.
Writing with sensitivity and wisdom, Veith and Moerbe address the common problems facing contemporary families: the crosses, the weaknesses, and the uncertainties. They articulate a compelling, biblical paradigm for creating and sustaining loving and forgiving families who maintain hope in the face of cultural pressure. This book is an important resource for all Christians, including pastors, counselors, and those working in family ministry.
“Blessing” is a weightier word than many people think it is. It is a concept given to us by God, and the meaning of it is revealed in His Word. Rev. Dr. Chris Mitchell and Deaconess Mary Moerbe dig into the meaning of the Hebrew term for “blessing,” brk, which is used in nearly 500 places throughout Scripture. Drawing from the teachings of our Lord, Mitchell and Moerbe present the nature of God’s blessing of His creation and the steadfast love He has for us.
An insightful resource for serious lay readers, students, and pastors, this book helps us better understand how we—who have received God’s blessing through His Son—can become blessings to others and can bless God in return!
God sends people to help in little ways and big ways. He calls all to love and to serve others, to help others no matter how old or young we are. And God's living, active Word works through us as we do!
