Psalms 127:1 states, “Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it.” As a carpenter, Jesus was able to build not only physically but spiritually. As your friends and loved ones “build” their house with the Lord, you can help bring gifts that will add edification to the space. Below are ten gift options to bring vibrancy and life to a housewarming.
1. John 3:16 KJV #22 Bible Verse Wall Art
This picture is so inviting. After a long day of work, one can gaze at this sunset and reflect on the beauty of our world and that in every day, God is there. As if the picture itself wasn’t beautiful enough, there is a lovely inscription of John 3:16. There are few verses as beloved as this one because it lays out the gospel in a simple yet profound way. Not only will the homeowners be reminded of God’s love for them, but all their guests will be met with an embrace of truth, that God loves them.
2. Avera Products “Blessed” Welcome Mat
This welcome mat is a sweet reminder that with Christ, we are blessed. Numbers 6:24-26 says, “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.” Ultimately all good things come from God: a roof over one’s head, the safety of a home, the gift of a peaceful space. God blesses his children richly.
3. 1 Thessalonians 5 16-18 Kitchen Soap Dispenser w/ Stainless Steel Pump
The reminder of giving thanks is always applicable. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 reminds us: “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.” It is easy to give thanks in a time of harvest, when everything is going just right. Celebration often calls for a grateful heart. However, believers are also told to rejoice always. Even when you have a hard day at work. Even when you're stressed and feel like everything is being thrown at you. In everything, we can give thanks because God works all for our good and his glory.
4. Proverbs 3:5-6 #17b KJV Bible Verse Wall Art Canvas
Trust is hard for many of us. There will be some point in your life, and your friend’s lives, that you will be faced with hardships or difficult decisions. This beautiful reminder from Proverbs 3:5-6 has been a comfort to many: Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. This would be a wonderful gift not only for the beautiful landscape shot but for the peaceful message it brings.
5. Twisted Anchor Trading Co Set of 5 Sentiment Kitchen Dish Towels
Christian homes are often marked by generous spirits and hospitality. Titus 1:8 states, “Rather, he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined.”
Sharing meals with others is a special way to show hospitality. There is something sacred about breaking bread with people and opening your home to them. As Christians, our homes should be spaces that invite others in and provide them with love and generosity.
6. Be Still and Know Candle
It can be hard to settle into a new space. Intentionally choosing to stop and focus on the Lord can change an entire day. However, in a fast paced world, it can be hard to be still! As you pause and make time for God, you can know more of him and his peace.
7. Mount Calvary Sunrise & Sunset Canvas Wall Art
There is no symbol treasured more than the cross. This beautiful scene of cavalry at sunset/sunrise is not only inspiring but a wonderful reminder of the faith. The cross is so much more than just a fixture. It is the instrument that God used to bring about eternal life and save his people.
When you gaze on the cross, many emotions might come to mind. Perhaps you feel love, humility, joy, or conviction. Ultimately the cross is meant to show us Jesus and that we serve a God who sacrifices for those he loves.
8. Glass Coaster Set by Trend Setters
Churches are so much more than buildings. Some are small, humble spaces and others are grand cathedrals. However, they all stand as a space to meet God. As Christians gather in church, they are encouraging one another in faith and loving their Savior together. Church is our second home as we gather with the family of Christ.
9. The Roman Store Anchor Bookends
These unique bookends are anchored in truth. Each reads, “Love anchors the soul.” This is a reference to Hebrews 6:19 which says, “We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.” When the storms of life come, we have hope that God is with us!
10. Lighthouse Christian Products A Life Filled With Love Vase
This sweet vase has the inscription, “Live a life filled with love.” It encourages the message of Ephesians 5:2 which states: “And walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” Daily, believers should be striving to live like Jesus.
Any of these gifts would be a great option to bless the home of a Christian family and uplift them on their next leg of the journey. Whether you choose wall art or coasters, each has a spiritual touch to remind others that the Lord is glorified in this household!
