5 RESCUE CALLS FOR OUR CHILDREN

In light of what is in the heart of our children …

  1. Our children need a parent or parents who will be faithful to their calling as a parent to give their child biblical guidance, direction for their life, rules for their protection, and commands to grow in wisdom.
  2. Our children need a parent or parents who will stand in their children’s life on behalf of God as an act of their own reverence for God. These parents  are to be humbled by the gospel of grace and then be a conduit of God’s grace to their children.
  3. Our children need a parent or parents who will always move toward their children by engaging them daily, supporting them always, and correcting them regardless of how their child treats them.
  4. Our children need a parent or parents who personally are on a spiritual journey of progressing in their sanctification and are finding their children as an instrument of instruction to their own hearts.
  5. Our children need a Savior who has triumphed over sin for his people and who became sin for them so that our children might become the righteousness of God.
