The Gospel Family

OK, so that is not exactly what I shared in my 3 messages from Colossians on the family! But really, nothing is more serious than what the gospel means to being a wife, a husband, a parent & a child. Personally Susan & I were clueless when we stepped into marriage as two non-Christians. Likewise in Detroit many will come to Christ who know nothing of God’s great purpose for the family. What is more, according to one study I just read, 88% of kids raised in evangelical homes will walk away from the faith. Leaving aside the theological implications for the moment this stat is just plain sobering! Thankfully Jesus is more than enough to redeem & restore us & our relationships!

My hope is these messages will connect many to the power & the pleasure of the gospel for the family.

Gospel Parenting

Col 3:18-21 Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. 19 Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them. Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.  Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.
