Series: Ephesians: The Mystery of the Gospel
Category: Discipleship, Gospel, Family
Speaker: Jason Williams
In this sermon, we looked at God's call for parents and children to bear His image in the home through the way they interact with one another. God calls children who are in Christ to honor their parents by speaking respectfully, listening to and following their instruction, and expressing gratitude for their care. When children honor their parents, we get a glimpse of the honor that we are all called to display toward God. Parents are to instruct and correct their children in a way that nourishes and cultivates their souls. This requires parents to be patient, kind, and slow to anger in shepherding their children. When parents guide and love their children in this way, we get a glimpse of what it looks like to be in relationship with a good God who is also our loving Father.
