APOSTOLIC MINISTRY: FAMILY CONSIDERATIONS, FATHERS & SONS

Objective: To share some scriptural insights with regard to the apostolic ministry. Two main areas are covered:

1. Making adequate provision for any family members who are left at home when we are travelling both nationally and internationally.

2. To provide insight into the area of Fathers and Sons in the ministry.

TRAVELLING FOR THE GOSPEL?

PROVIDE FOR YOUR FAMILY BEFORE YOU TRAVEL !!

It is a matter of great concern that men of God often travel away from their homes on missionary or apostolic trips both within their own countries and overseas, spending large sums of money on travel costs, whilst leaving their wives and children at home without food to eat and other basic necessities of life.

Men of God in both the developed and undeveloped world are often guilty of this. Through our ministry organisation here in Cape Town we often have preachers from other countries visiting our local churches. Time and again we have become aware of men who have left their homes without making adequate provision for the well-being of their families. The Bible views a man’s responsibility towards his wife and children in a very serious light:

1) ’HE MUST MANAGE HIS OWN FAMILY WELL’(1 Timothy 3:1-5)

1 Here is a trustworthy saying: If anyone sets his heart on being an overseer, he desires a noble task. …… 4 He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him with proper respect. 5 (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?)

vs. 4,5 Don’t go to the nations and leave your family without food and other basic necessities.

2) HE MUST PROVIDE FOR HIS FAMILY (1 Timothy 5:8)

If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

If you don’t provide for your family, you have “denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever”.

3) HE MUST PROVIDE HIS FAMILY WITH THEIR BASIC NEEDS (Exodus 21:10)

If he marries another woman, he must not deprive the first one of her food, clothing and marital rights. 11 If he does not provide her with these three things, she is to go free, without any payment of money.

It is the husband’s responsibility in the Lord to provide the family with their basic needs.
