Being a father can provide constant challenges, especially when trying to find the right balance between giving discipline and giving grace. One child may become exasperated by certain elements of correction while another may need diligent instruction. In the end, a father’s love for his child must remain unconditional in the same way our Heavenly Father’s love is unconditional toward His children. A father or mother may not even see the benefits of loving in this way until they see their child united with Christ for all of eternity.

A distinct sign of a crumbling society is that children no longer obey their parents. It is now often perceived as anti-cultural and, even “old-fashioned,” to believe that parents have authority over their children. When children are captured by the love and lordship of Christ, they will be more inclined to obey their parents in a heartfelt and sincere way. They will be markedly different from others around them, bringing testimony to the wonder of God’s amazing grace.

What does it mean to love your wife? The Bible affirms that husbands are to love their wives as Christ loved the church. This is a high standard that is nothing less than a model of the cross of Christ. This love is not harsh; it is sensitive, natural, purposeful, and exclusive. It is a love that enables a wife to flourish in her purity and femininity and grow in her love for Christ.

Have you ever wondered why Christian marriages continue to suffer when the church places so much emphasis on the importance of strong marital relationships?

The response of wives to their husbands is to emulate how a believer responds to the Lord Jesus.

Martin Luther referred to the Lord’s Prayer as "the greatest martyr on earth," because it was used, he said, so frequently without thought or feeling and without reverence or faith. In our Christian lives, nothing is more important, and nothing more difficult to establish and maintain, than a meaningful prayer life. Although we can find time to do just about everything else; good things, industrious things, ministry things, it seems that when we get to the issue of prayer, everything works against us. When we look at the Lord’s Prayer, we realize that there is much instruction contained in it. ...
