Sermon Message:

"Get Your House In Order"

Facing Fundamental Issues Regarding Your Faith,

Final Wishes, Finances, Family & Funeral

This message was given by Dr. Brian Kluth.  After this message,

the "FAMILY ORGANIZER" was given to every family in his church.


Isaiah 38:1 "This is what the LORD says:

Put your house in order, because you are going to die."


1 - Get your faith in order

Eccl 9:12  No man knows when his hour will come.  

Heb 9:27  It is destined that each person dies only once and after that comes judgment. NLT

2 Cor 5:10 We (Christ following believers) must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.

1 John 5:11-13 This is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.  I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.  

John 3:3 Jesus declared, "I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again."


2 - Get your final wishes in order (medical wishes)

Prov 27:12TLB A sensible man watches for problems ahead and prepares to meet them. The simpleton never looks and suffers the consequences.   

2 Cor 5:1-4 We know that when this tent we live in now is taken down-when we die and leave these bodies-we will have wonderful new bodies in heaven, homes that will be ours forever-more, made for us by God himself and not by human hands. How weary we grow of our present bodies. That is why we look forward eagerly to the day when we shall have heavenly bodies that we shall put on like new clothes. For we shall not be merely spirits without bodies. These earthly bodies make us groan and sigh.TLB


3 - Get your finances in order

Prov 27:23-24 Riches can disappear fast. And the king's crown doesn't stay in his family forever-so watch your business interests closely. Know the state of your flocks and your herds.TLB

Prov 3:9 AMP Honor the Lord with your capital (=wealth, riches, goods, possessions, substance) and sufficiency from righteous labors and with the first fruits of all your income (revenues, increase, fruit, produce).       

Deut 16:17 Each of you must bring a gift in proportion to the way the LORD your God has blessed you.


4 - Get your family affairs in order

Prov 13:22 A good man leaves an inheritance for his children's children.

Prov 20:21 An inheritance quickly gained at the beginning will not be blessed at the end.  (Also see: Luke 15:11-24 Prodigal son)

Prov 17:16 What use is money in the hand of a fool, since he has no desire to get wisdom?       

Prov 19:14 Houses (=a place to live) and wealth (=enough stuff for the place you live) are inherited from parents, but a prudent wife is from the LORD.    


5 - Get your funeral celebration in order

1 Thess 4:13-14  Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.


After Brian's sermon message,

this 28-page manual was handed out to all the families in his congregation.  This manual provides helpful information, ideas, and forms to better communicate your medical wishes, financial information, life legacy, Biblical generosity, and funeral planning with loved ones and professionals.
