Family Dinners

Family dinners are short devotions that you can share around your dinner table at home. Come back here every week for new devotions that you can use to encourage your family to follow the way of Christ.

The Same God!

Family Dinner: April 16th – 22nd

Open your Bibles to the book of Hebrews, chapter 13 and read verse 8 together.

Often times we forget that the God of the Bible is the same God we worship today! We are constantly changing with our struggles, our desires, and our lives, but our God… He never changes. The same God who died on the cross over two-thousand years ago is the same God we worship and love TODAY! This also means that His great love for us never changes. He always cherishes us as His own special children that He has rescued and redeemed!

Discuss the following questions together:

1. What character trait of God are you most thankful for, why?

2. Our God is steadfast and never changing. Why is this important to you and your faith?

3. Would something in your life change if Jesus was standing before you today? Why, what needs to change?                      

Put it into Practice! Take a moment and praise God together through prayer. Thank Him for being WHO He is!

  • Need some inspiration? Read through these Psalms of Praise!
  • Psalm 145, 147:5-9, 149
  • “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!” Psalm 150:6

Jesus ALWAYS shows up!

Family Dinner: April 9th – 15th

Open your Bibles to John chapter 20 and read verses 26 and 27 together.

Jesus showed up amidst one of His disciples having a hard time believing that He really resurrected from the dead. Jesus told the disciples many times that He would raise from the dead, but they still struggled believing. This is what our God does; He patiently and graciously meets us where we’re at, with gentleness. We get to worship the same Jesus today, because He never changes (Hebrews 13:8)!

Discuss the following questions together:

1. Hebrews 11:6 says, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him,…” Why is faith or trust important to God?

2. Are you having a hard time believing something that’s in the Bible? Or have you had a hard time in the past? How did you go from an unbelieving to believing?

3. Is there a part of your life that you’re not fully surrendering to God, and not allowing Him to show up in the midst of your situation? How can your family help you in this?

4. What is a prayer request that you currently have, where you need more faith or trust in God that He’s got this under control?

Put it into Practice! Stop and P.R.A.Y. together as a family!

  • Praise God for He is good and worthy
  • Repent from sin
  • Ask God and submit your requests to Him
  • Yield willingly to His will for your life!

Jesus is alive, RISE UP!

Family Dinner: April 2nd – 8th

Open your Bibles to Romans chapter 6 and read verse 4 together.

We are reborn and a  new creation when we accept Jesus in our lives. When He died on the cross, He said “it is finished.” (John 19:30) because He has won, He’s our Victorious King! He knew He would RISE UP out of that grave, defeating death and able to grant us life. We must put to death ALL sin in our lives and walk in the newness of life. It’s foolish to keep the grave clothes on, like Lazarus, after rising up and being made a new creation.

Discuss the following questions together:

  1. Has God given you VICTORY over sin in your life? Stop, Pray and Thank Him!
  2. Take off the grave clothes, sin gives birth to death! What sin are you still flirting with?
  3. What are practical ways your family can help you RISE UP and walk in the victory in regards to sin in your life?
  4. What does it mean to “RISE UP” for the sake of salvation for Los Angeles? What are practical ways you can do this together as a family?

Put it into Practice! RISE UP! Take one practical idea from question 4 and put it into action this week!

Repentance must come before REVIVAL!

Family Dinner: March 26th – April 1st

Open your Bibles to 2 Chronicles chapter 7 and read verse 14 together.


We’ve all been praying for a revival of many coming to know Jesus across Los Angeles. However, before we can see LA experience a revival, His church must humble themselves and repent! Those who know Jesus and seek His face, must turn away from the sin in their own lives. Our nation will never see revival unless our churches see revival. Our churches will never see revival unless we see revival in our own hearts and lives. Nothing will change until God’s people genuinely get serious about the calling of knowing God and making Him known.

Before you go through these questions:

  • Pray and Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal unrepentant sin in your life.
  • Confess it and turn away from it, seeking God instead!

Discuss the following questions below:

1. Why must we confess and repent from sin in our lives? Why is this important in our relationship with God?

3. How can this Easter be different? What can you practically do in your every day life to positively impact your relationship with Jesus?

Put it into Practice! Bring someone to Easter service with you and your family on Sunday, March 31st!

Our Motives Matter!

Family Dinner: March 19th – 25th

Open your Bibles to Colossians chapter 3, and read verses 22 and 23 together.

Our motives in serving and following God are really important to Him. People see the outward appearance, but God sees us on the inward; He sees our hearts. The book of James says our faith is dead if it doesn’t have good works, meaning we have to desire to do good works to the benefit of others if our faith is real and genuine! We’re not to please others by going on a mission trip, being baptized, or feeding the homeless, but to please and glorify God! The commands of God and doing good works are not to be burdensome, but we’re to desire to be cheerful and generous givers from our hearts. This is all an outpouring of our love for Jesus as we desire for others to know and love Him as well.

Discuss the following questions together as a family:

1. Which commandments are more difficult for you to obey and tend to be burdensome, why?

2. What are ways you can serve God? What good works can you do to the benefit of others and for God’s glory? 

3. What good work has someone done that blessed you in your life?

4. How have you served God in the past? What was a takeaway from that?

Put it into Practice! Pray and Ask God for an opportunity, and then RISE UP to do a GOOD WORK this week!
