The Duty of Children

From Series: Grace and Peace, Volume 8

Ephesians 6:1-3  (ID: 3283)

The Apostle Paul took great care to address God’s intended order for relationships among believers. With respect to the family, the Bible instructs children to obey their parents, and parents bear the responsibility of training the children entrusted to them to love and obey God. Alistair Begg explores these commands, reminding us that our obedience is grounded in the Gospel and enabled by grace. Families that strive to follow this pattern in the strength that God provides demonstrate the reality of the Gospel through their lives.


Children and Parents

1Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. 2“Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), 3“that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.”
