A Message for Christian Children Ephesians 6:1-4 Purpose: Recovering the Spirit-Filled Relationship between Parents and Children 1. Children, Obey Ephesians 6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. The command: Children obey your parents in the Lord 2. Family Honor & Blessing Ephesians 6:2 HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER (which is the first commandment with a promise), 3 SO THAT IT MAY BE WELL WITH YOU, AND THAT YOU MAY LIVE LONG ON THE EARTH. OT authority: The rationale for obedient Children is what?your own wellness 3. Multi-Generational Faith Ephesians 6:4 Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger But bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord If fathers are doing what they are supposed to be doing, and mothers too, then what is the connection with the children? See the cycle of truth? See Psalm 78:1-8 Psalm 78:1 Listen, O my people, to my instruction; Incline your ears to the words of my mouth. 2 I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings of old, 3 Which we have heard and known, And our fathers have told us. 4 We will not conceal them from their children, But tell to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, And His strength and His wondrous works that He has done. 5 For He established a testimony in Jacob And appointed a law in Israel, Which He commanded our fathers That they should teach them to their children, 6 That the generation to come might know, even the children yet to be born, That they may arise and tell them to their children, 7 That they should put their confidence in God
