Poster Child

December 4, 2022

As we wrap up this series on the family, I want to speak directly to the children. Whether you’re still living at home with your parents, or if you’ve moved out and started your own life but still have your parents around, this message is for you. If you are a child of God, then your goal should be to be a godly child. And while that is a responsibility you should take seriously, it’s also a responsibility your parents share with you to an extent. It takes godly parents to do their best to have godly children. Godly parents must provide leadership, and godly children should give followship. Again, if you are a child of God, your goal should be to be a godly child. So with that in mind, I’m going to give you three things you need to do to be a godly child.

Family Ties

In this series, Dr. James Merritt will explain how he is absolutely convinced not just from a biblical perspective, but from a social and cultural perspective that the family is still a vital institution, and marriage is where the family begins. It is still God’s best plan for the beginning of the family and the continuation of the family. He will dive into the different pieces of a family and what the Bible has to say about each of them. And He will ultimately point us back to Scripture as we learn more about how God intended for the family to look, live, and love.

Bible Reference
