Sermons For Family Reunions

Sermons for Family Reunions: It’s crucial to keep in mind the purpose of your family reunion when you’re all gathered together. This is a time to honor your heritage and pay homage to our ancestors. We can use it as a chance to remind ourselves of how we might improve as people, not just for our families but also for ourselves. Simply sitting around and discussing what has happened in the past is insufficient. We must also discuss what we can do going forward to enhance our quality of life and make this world a better place for everyone.

We are all aware of the numerous issues that our society is currently dealing with, including those related to drug abuse, poverty, starvation, and violence against women and children. Everyone who lives here is affected by these issues, but some people are more affected than others. In order to prevent these issues from affecting future generations, it is crucial that we all do what we can as people (and families) to contribute to their solutions. That way, they won’t have to worry about them either!

“And all his sons and all his daughters rose up to comfort him; but he refused to be comforted; and he said, ‘For I shall go down into the grave unto my son mourning.’ Thus his father wept for him.” (Genesis 37:35)

The passage of Scripture above contains a story in which the son of Jacob, now called Israel, is betrayed by his brother Joseph. His sons and daughters have gathered around him to comfort him over the loss of Joseph, but he refuses to be comforted. Instead, he says: “For I shall go down into the grave unto my son mourning.”

A kid who has been incredibly loved and who has left his family for another one chooses to die rather than confront the damage his decision has caused to those who love him the most. But it also serves as a fitting metaphor for what we all feel during family gatherings: a mixture of happiness coupled with regret over missed chances and sadness over loved ones whose lives were cut short too soon due to events beyond anyone’s control or comprehension.

“The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.” (Proverbs 28:1)

This quote is a good place to start, but it’s also important to remember that “bold” doesn’t just mean “brave.” Boldness can also be a sign of arrogance, and this verse reminds us that we should avoid it.

There are plenty of examples of people who have shown this trait and done so in an arrogant way. Just think of the Pharisees, who were so confident in their own righteousness that they couldn’t see how far they had strayed from God’s word.

On the other hand, there are also many instances where being bold has been used for good purposes. For example, when Jesus spoke out against religious leaders for their hypocrisy (Matthew 23), he was boldly defending his Father’s honor against those who were trying to destroy it by living contrary lives themselves!

“The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.” (Proverbs 18:10)

This verse reminds us that God is our protector and that we should always seek his guidance. The righteous will be safe in God’s hands, while the wicked will not. It also stresses the importance of maintaining a moral uprightness before God, because this is what makes you righteous or wicked. Just as important as doing good deeds is avoiding evil ones—if you are righteous, then your works will show it (Proverbs 13:21).

God’s mercy is always available to those who seek him out and ask for forgiveness (Psalm 130:4-5). His love for us does not depend on anything we do; rather, he loves us unconditionally (John 3:16-17). When we sin against him or against each other, he offers us forgiveness through Jesus Christ if only we confess our sins (1 John 1:9). Through repentance on our part, He can bring healing into our relationships with others by forgiving any wrongs they have committed against us (Colossians 3:13).

“When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.” (Proverbs 3:24)

God wants us to be successful, joyful, and healthy, and He is aware that getting enough sleep is crucial to achieving those ends. God is also concerned about our spiritual health! Our bodies repair and renew themselves as we sleep. Because the body is at rest and has more freedom to speak with God during this time, we also grow closer to Him. By allowing us to take a break from our everyday stressors and obligations while we sleep, we are better able to confront them when we awaken with a fresh outlook. Last but not least, sleep promotes health by enabling our bodies to recuperate from any tiny wounds they may have sustained during the day (or even a strenuous workout).

“Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.” (Matthew 10:31)

Fear is a natural thing. We can’t help but be afraid of things that are unknown to us, or that we believe will harm us in some way.

Fear can also arise from our future, as we wonder what might happen to us tomorrow or next month or in five years’ time.

And sometimes, fear can be about what’s happening right now—for example, if your company has been bought out and all of you suddenly have new bosses who don’t know much about what they’re doing! In this situation, you may be worried because there’s no one left who knows enough about the company’s operations to keep it going efficiently until the new people learn enough on their own (or hire specialists).

Let me put your mind at ease: fear not! Your employer isn’t going anywhere anytime soon; they’re here for life (or at least until they go bankrupt).

“As a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him.” (Psalm 103:13)

I want to spend this sermon looking at Psalm 103:13, which says that “As a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him.”

When I read this verse, I think of how much God loves me. This is the first thing I think of when I read this verse because it tells me how much God is like my own parents—that he will help me in whatever situation I am in! Just as a loving father would protect and care for his children, so does our heavenly Father watch over us and help us through each day.

This portion of the scripture also serves as a reminder to not be scared since God will be with us no matter what. We experience an even greater peace when we realize that our Heavenly Father loves us just as much as any earthly father would love his child. The fact that we can have peace despite any fear or worry illustrates how much love exists between fathers and sons/daughters on earth (or grandchild). God assures those who put their trust in him that they will never again have to face anything alone because he has made himself known via Christ’s death on the cross in order to save sinners like ourselves, even though there may be many things in life that frighten or worry us.

“Neither do men put new wine into old bottles…” (Luke 5:37)

The Bible is filled with metaphors, which can be difficult to understand. This one comes from Jesus’ words in Luke 5:37. He said this as he was teaching his disciples and other people how to care for someone who was sick.

“And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish.”

This verse means that we should not try to change God’s law or His gift of salvation (which is like new wine). Instead, we should keep what he has already given us.

“…I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen…” (Matthew 28:20)

This is the last verse of Matthew, and it’s a promise. Even though we are separated in this life, we will be reunited with our loved ones one day in the next life. This verse is not meant to be depressing or scary; it is meant to bring hope and comfort during times of separation.

God is there for us through good times and bad.

God is there for us through good times and bad. He is for us, not against us. God is our shield, our strength, and our shelter. He does not abandon his children to the hurts of this world; rather he protects them from it. God is always with us—through thick and thin—and he will never leave or forsake you!
