Children in the Lord (Ephesians 6:1-4)

Pastor Mark Winder, March 26, 2017
Part of the What Is a Presbyterian? series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Are the children of believers cut off from God's covenant people - contrary to the way God worked for thousands of years? Or can Christian parents encourage their children in obedience because their higher obligation is to God himself, and they are in a vital relationship with him? We look at the four commends given in Ephesians 6:1-4 and see if "Children obey your parents" is just a biological rule, or a covenant obligation.

Ephesians 6:1-4

6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.” Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. (ESV)
