Parent or Child

Parent or Child

AFCRadioShawn-160-241-03112013God Bless Disciples and Ambassadors for Christ Jesus.

The WORD of God states in Colossians 3:20, “Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.

In this Scripture we could be the parent and/or the child.

As the child, we are to obey our parents; however, what if our parents are setting a bad example? What if our parents are not following or teaching us the ways of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ?

As the child we may be covered in following our parents instructions because we do not know any better. As we mature and grow in the WORD of God, we come to know and understand that our Father, who art in Heaven is for whom we are to follow.

As the parent, we are to teach and raise our children in the ways of the LORDProverbs 22:6. What if we do not know the ways of the LORD? What if our parents never taught us true right from wrong but only passed on what they knew and understood about worldly right and wrong.

As the adult, we are to gain knowledge and wisdom and depart from our old parents and start a new life. We are to seek true right and wrong from our Father, our Creator, and the One who loves us unconditionally. As the parent, we can be held accountable for not directing our children in the ways of the LORD and in-turn, setting them up for condemnation when they become an adult and/or parent.

God gave His only Son, His first Born, His first Fruit, and Jesus gave His life for us so that we could be reconciled to the Father through Him. Let us in return learn His ways and pass them down for generations to come.

Jesus Loves YOU!!!
Amen
