God wants your Home

Introduction: Mt. 4:4 (Jesus said that man must live by the word of God. God wants every aspect of our lives to be controlled by his word. This includes your home. Too many homes today are controlled by the Devil. It is high time we yield our homes to God. God wants to control your home. God wants your home!)
