Essentials for Christian Parenting

Failing to teach our children in the truth of the gospel is directly opposed to loving them. The enemy has a canny way of wrapping sin in pretty packages. What can be done, then, to convince children that God is more attractive than anything the world has to offer?

Immerse yourself in the Word of God

 

Before we parents and teachers teach truth, we’d better be sure we have it ourselves. Assess your time management when it comes to prioritizing Christ. Make daily Bible reading a habit. If you want Christ to be your child’s first love, you must make him your own.

Make your joy in Christ visible to your children

Be sure to remind your children of God’s grace and glorify his goodness. Don’t waste a moment in showcasing our God in all circumstances. Your enthusiasm and love for Christ will make an impression on your children.

Present the gospel every day and in different ways

Children will not learn the gospel without hearing it. Not just on Sundays, but every day. Paul asks, in Romans 10:14, “How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching?”

When you’re driving them to school, tucking them into bed, walking through the mall, be intentional in taking every opportunity to teach your children sound doctrine through the regular hearing of Scripture. Take every moment with them captive to the teaching of Christ and to train them in godly way.
