A fruitful church is committed to equipping families and the next generation with the gospel because it is God’s plan to work through families to reach the next generation with the gospel.
1. We must train the generations to come.
2. We must tell the next generation all that God has done.
“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” –Duet 6:4-9
3. We must be faithful in our parenting.
