Isn't it enough to take my family to worship on Sundays? How can I do something in my home that exceeds what takes place on the Lord's Day? Quite simply, that's not the point. Family worship is to enhance, not replace, the value of what believers do on Sundays. Among these benefits are:

It Brings Glory to God
God is most glorified when His people value Him above all other things. Family worship is a visible reminder for all in the home that God is worthy of our time, attention, and affection. Family worship glorifies God as we are conformed more and more into the image of Christ.

It Produces Joy in the Home
The joy Jesus brings to individuals He will bring to families who delight in His worship together. The love of Christ will more easily abound in a home where worship is central. A our love for Christ grows through worship, it produces lasting joy among husbands and wives, fathers and sons, mothers and daughters.

It Effects Change in the World
Consider both the short-term and long-term impact of family worship. God is pleased to work through the prayers of a family that prays nightly for the needs of people near and far. God hears and answers the prayers of a four-year-old girl asking for the spread of the gospel among an unreached people group. In His sovereign response, missionaries may be sent, the Bible may be translated, and churches may be started--because God determined to use the prayers prayed in a particular home by a particular family engaged in family worship.

Also, think about the incredible value of family worship in the lives of children once they are grown. They've heard hundreds of passages read and explained, seen God answer countless prayers, sang songs of the faith, and memorized more Scripture than many Christians do in a lifetime. This is a foundation that will stand the test of time and will bear gospel fruit for generations to come.
