RESCUE: A LIFESAVING COURSE FOR THE FAMILY

Welcome to those who are attending or planning on attending the class I will be leading at Faith Bible Church on parenting. Also welcome to those who cannot but you are welcome to follow the class on this blog site. I have titled it “Rescue” because families these days need to be rescued from the overload of parenting information that is thrown at them. Over 75,000 books on parenting have been produced in the last decade and the church has for the most part, lost its bearings on what is truly a biblical course.

I am hoping to navigate a way through the maze and the ultimate rescue that God has provided in the gospel itself. Families are made of parents who are sinners and children who sin and God has provided through Jesus Christ the answer to sin.

The plan is to post throughout the week a review of the class along with some additional thoughts. Here is the schedule:

Week 1: Navigating a biblical course

Week 2: Rescuing a parent’s heart

Weeks 3 & 4: Rescuing a child’s heart

Week 5: Survival in the storms of the world

Week 6: The home as a Christ-centered sanctuary

The goals of the class are:

  1. To encourage parents where they are doing well and motivate changes where needed by moving forward with the gospel.
  2. Learn to be an authentic example of the gospel in their home and to their children.
  3. Learn to use the Word of God as the revelation of God and the means of exposing our sin and depravity and revealing our desperate need of a Savior.
  4. Help parents teach their children what it means for their children to obey them and to live well in God’s kingdom.
