Parenting 101

Don't you wish kids came with an owners manual? Many times, we try to parent in our own strength and not rely on the Lord for our wisdom and strength. In this series, we will learn how to Receive our children from the Lord, Raise them up into the Lord, and then Release them back to the Lord.

Raise Up Your Child in the Lord

July 24, 2016 | Ephesians 6:1-4 | parenting

What is your parenting approach? Where did you learn how to be a mom or dad? Was it from your parents? From friends or a book? Or are you just winging it? The apostle Paul told the Ephesians how to raise up their children according to God’s plan. As Christians, we can follow God’s Word in the training of our children and raise them up to maturity according to God’s intent.

Receive Your Child from the Lord

Don’t you wish kids came with an owners manual? Many times, we try to parent in our own strength and not rely on the Lord for our wisdom and strength.

Ready for Christ's Return: An Exposition of 1 Thessalonians

In this series we will be studying what it means to be prepared and ready for Christ’s return. As we go verse by verse through 1 Thessalonians we will see how the apostle Paul encouraged that church to be ready for Christ’s return. They were facing many challenges that we still face today including persecution and even death. As we study these Scriptures we will see how to rightly face these challenges by placing our hope in the resurrection of Jesus and His return.

What’s your life goal? Do you have one? What do you think God’s goal for your life is? Would you like to know? What is God’s goal for your life? That you become like Christ. Born again with a new nature, becoming like Jesus, so that you might be ready for Christ’s return. In Paul’s first letter to the Thessalonians, he closed the letter with final instructions on how they might cooperate with God’s goal for them to be sanctified and ready for Christ’s return.

Facing the Day (1 Thessalonians 4:13 – 5:11)

Have you ever had to face the death of loved one? Do you know the grief of such loss? Do ever feel discouraged by the increasing trouble in this world? Did you know that the Lord has a word for you to help you face such days? Including the Day of all days? In these passages of 1 Thessalonians 4 and 5, Paul tells the believers of Thessalonica that they can be ready to face the Day of the Lord. We too can be ready to face the Day of Christ’s return.
