God Deserves to Be Worshipped in Our Homes
Whitney discussed how family worship is an essential aspect of Christian parenting. Although it is not explictly shown in Scripture, many passages reveal an implied expectation of worshipping God together as a family in our own home.
The Example of Church History
Additionally, Whitney provided example after example of historical Christian figures who modeled family worship in their own homes. John Chrysostom (347-407) urged that every house should be a church, and every head of a family a spiritual shepherd.
Martin Luther, John Knox, the Puritans, Matthew Henry, Jonathan Edwards, Charles Spurgeon, and many others all taught the value of family worship and practiced it in their own homes.
