God has designed the family to raise generations that will remember who He is, and what He has done. Children grow up in an increasingly volatile world that seeks to damage their spirit. The only defense to this death threat is the truth of the gospel. Our children need to know that Jesus is everything and that there is a God who loves us and gave everything to be with us eternally. We all must rise to the challenge of equipping our families for victorious life in a fallen world. Live the gospel message you want to teach your children. Tell them how Jesus saved you.
