Urging our children to follow Jesus

"Urging the Children"

This week's sermon: We want to be embedded and faithful, and we want the same for our children. In 1 Thessalonians 2, Paul compares his spiritual relationship with the Thessalonians to parenting, so we catch a glimpse of what godly parenting entails: Caring, Encouraging, Comforting and Urging.

There is no greater force for change or cultural influence than the local church. The church in Thessalonica is a powerful example: it’s one of the farthest-flung churches Paul is able to plant. From there, all of Europe is reached for Christ. Though the people of this young church have serious questions about the reason for their existence, Paul reassures them in 1 Thessalonians that they are fulfilling God’s purpose just by being present in the world. Because they are Embeddedthey stand as a witness to the power and love of Jesus Christ. They are examples of the faith, hope, and love that characterize the Christian life.
