How to Build a Family Under God

1. The first step in building a family under God is that the couple involved in the marriage should first of all build their marriage under God because a marriage that is built under God will automatically produce a family under God. Building a marriage under God will only be possible when the couples are born again. The couple that has Jesus Christ as their savior can build their marriage under God.

2. The second step in building a family under God is to identify your family with any local church. Though identifying your family with a local church alone is not enough because is possible to identify your family with a local church and things are not working as God wanted it in your family. But identifying yourself with a local church helps a lot in that it will be a place you are strengthened when you are falling off.

3. The third step in building a family under God is continuous giving of attention to word of God and prayer. After couple has stabilized their marriage under God they next thing they should do is to make sure that they study God's word and pray daily. When a family continue to behold God's word there is a continuous transformation and also when a family continue to pray there is also an automatic change that normally takes place.

4. The last step to building a family under God is by instructing your children in the way of the Lord. Any child that is raised under God finds it difficult to veer off from the way of the Lord. When a family is built under God the children that are in that family will automatically be affected due to Godly values that is been shared in that family.

Building a family under God comes when all this four steps is put in place not doing three and leaving one but applying all of them as it should be because if you don't identify your family with any local church it will be hard to first of all contact God that you will now carry to your family.
