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.
The Christian Family
In truly Christian families, each member affirms that "Jesus is Lord." Husbands and wives display their love for the Lord Jesus in giving themselves wholeheartedly to the privileges and responsibilities of marriage. Children also display their understanding of Jesus’ Lordship by respecting and obeying their parents. When everyone in the family follows this biblical mandate it makes for healthy churches and stable societies. This study from Colossians 3 will help you communicate the gospel to your family, friends and neighbors by living out the Lordship of Jesus in your home.
