How to raise your Children Biblically in a Secular World. Part Two.

Welcome to Part Two of our sermon on "How to raise your children Biblically in a Secular World." In Part One, we discussed the importance of setting a Christ-centered example for your children, disciplining them with love and consistency, and teaching them to obey God's Word. Today, we will continue with more practical ways to raise your children Biblically in a secular world, drawing wisdom from Scripture.


1. Teach them to be discerning: In a world where truth is relative and morality is subjective, teach your children to feel essential. Please encourage them to question and think critically about what they are being taught. In proverbs 1:7, we read, "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction." By teaching our children to fear the Lord, we equate them with the wisdom to discern truth from falsehood.


2. Train them to be servant-leaders: Jesus modeled servant leadership, and we should follow His example. We should teach our children to serve others with humility and love. In Mark 10:45, Jesus says, "For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." By teaching our children to serve, we are helping them develop a heart for others and a desire to impact the world positively.


3. Instill a love for God's Word: In a world hostile to God's Word, teaching our children to love and cherish it is crucial. Psalm 119:11 says, "I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you." By teaching our children to memorize and meditate on God's Word, we are helping them to develop a biblical worldview and a strong foundation in their faith.


4. Pray with them and for them: As parents, we have a responsibility to pray for our children and with our children. James 5:16 says, "The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it works." By praying for our children, we invite God into their lives and ask Him to work in and through them. By praying with our children, we are modeling dependence on God and teaching them the importance of prayer.


In conclusion, raising children Biblically in a secular world is not an easy task, but it is necessary. We must strive to set a Christ-centered example, discipline with love and consistency, teach them to be obedient to God's Word, and instill a love for God's Word, a heart for serving others, and a discerning spirit. Let us commit to raising our children in a way that honors God and glorifies His name. May God bless you and your family.


Amen.
