WHAT CAN JESUS DO FOR YOUR HOME?
TEXT: “I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you” ().
INTRODUCTION: Timothy’s home in Lystra shed forth the glow of living faith, the faith that admitted Jesus. What He did in and for that home, He has done for countless other homes; and He will do it for your home and for any home that gives Him a welcome to dwell with them.

I. See what He did for homes when He was here on earth.

A. He solved problems in the home—as in Cana of Galilee when the refreshments were used up. He was sufficient and is sufficient for all problems.

(NLT)

7 Jesus told the servants, “Fill the jars with water.” When the jars had been filled,

8he said, “Now dip some out, and take it to the master of ceremonies.” So the servants followed his instructions.

8 he said, “Now dip some out, and take it to the master of ceremonies.” So the servants followed his instructions.

9 When the master of ceremonies tasted the water that was now wine, not knowing where it had come from (though, of course, the servants knew), he called the bridegroom over.

10 “A host always serves the best wine first,” he said. “Then, when everyone has had a lot to drink, he brings out the less expensive wine. But you have kept the best until now!”

B. He healed mothers, including Peter’s mother-in-law (see ).

We know that Jesus healed the sick, how many times did Jesus heal broken homes? We have seen Jesus do this for us today. Heal, abuse, alcohol addiction etc.

D. He gave sight to blind sons.

(NLT)

1 As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man who had been blind from birth. 2 “Rabbi,” his disciples asked him, “why was this man born blind? Was it because of his own sins or his parents’ sins?” 3 “It was not because of his sins or his parents’ sins,” Jesus answered. “This happened so the power of God could be seen in him.

2 “Rabbi,” his disciples asked him, “why was this man born blind? Was it because of his own sins or his parents’ sins?”
3 “It was not because of his sins or his parents’ sins,” Jesus answered. “This happened so the power of God could be seen in him.

E. He raised children from death.

(NLT)

35 While he was still speaking to her, messengers arrived from the home of Jairus, the leader of the synagogue. They told him, “Your daughter is dead. There’s no use troubling the Teacher now.” 36 But Jesus overheard them and said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid. Just have faith.”

36But Jesus overheard them and said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid. Just have faith.”

F. He cast demons out of sons and daughters.

So, do you see Jesus taking care of the home? We all have issues in the home. Where did the people of Jesus time go for “home problems?”

II. What He did for others when He was here on earth He still does for those who seek Him.

A. It is not a question of His ability. It is a question of your accessibility. Is your home open to Him?

B. What can He do? He can give eternal life; and that is salvation.

C. He will give “union” with Himself. God’s only Son, are you hearing this great love that God has for us?

(NLT)

16“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. 17 God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.

17 God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.
CONCLUSION: Young people who are the product of homes where Jesus lives, we urge you to set up Christian homes. These homes will be saving homes, and the transforming Lord will be made known to the community and beyond
Remember Christ’s invitation and promise: “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me ().
