Jesus not only came on a salvation mission but a restoration mission. He came to restore our identity as sons and daughters of the Father and to restore the original heart of the Father. We are motivated by the destiny given to family from the very beginning.
The First Great Commission says in Genesis 1:28, “Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and subdue it.” It was the very first words spoken by the Creator to Adam and Woman.
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” This Second Great Commission was given by Jesus as the last words He physically released to the earth. Both are of great importance and have our complete attention!
The Second Great Commission didn't cancel the first!
The First Great Commission is called the “Cultural Mandate,” because families were created to set the culture. "As the family goes, so goes the culture," is a statement that has always been true and will always be true. Just as in the beginning, our families were created to demonstrate and reproduce the Father’s original heart and culture over the face of the earth.
There is no Plan B! Family is still the plan.
Each of our families have an enormous part to play - goFam ministries can help you learn how!
