Reforming Parenting

Parenting is hard. Parenting in a way that glorifies God can seem impossible. Evidently, humanly speaking, it is.

What does godly parenting look like? What does the Bible say about Parenting? How can we parent in a way that glorifies God? What about when we fail?

On the latest episode of Awakening Reformation Podcast we are joined by our friends, Nick and Samantha Macarahes, to tackles this topic.

Laws, bullets, and Jesus

News feeds are filled with notifications about the tragic events occurring in Parkland, FL. Go here if you are unaware of these events.

In the wake of these events, people rush to give their opinions. Almost mechanically, the left cries for tighter guns control laws and regulations to appease our conscience with the thought that we tried as hard as we could. In the same fashion, the right points out the fact that the attack happened to a mostly unarmed defenseless place. Their remedy is more heavily armed guards or the allowance for teachers to be armed etc.

I am speaking to Christians with what follows but I hope that all people can benefit.

While there is certainly a place for analysis of the events and action to help mitigate attacks from happening, there is a far more pressing issue. There are now hundreds of family members who have just lost a loved one or a loved one is injured.

As Christians we are called to mourn with those who mourn. We must pause and remember the real people attached to this event. Real people with real grief. An I-told-you-so attitude does nothing to comfort someone who teenager was just shot and killed.

Be slow to speak. Quick to listen. Remember that we are called to have compassion. Put the analytics on pause for a bit.

Why? Because the real problem isn’t guns laws or bullets. The problem is that every person on earth is desperately lost in their sin. Everyone needs the saving freedom offered through trusting in Jesus. It’s all about Jesus. Jesus died on the cross so that sinners could be freed from the penalty, power, and presence of sin through trusting in Him. Laws or bullets never changed anyone’s heart-only Jesus can do that.

Matthew 12:20 ESV — a bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not quench, until he brings justice to victory;

A walk through 1st John

I just began the Apostle John’s first letter in my personal bible study time. To help me think through, meditate, and retain what I learn, I’m going to use this blog.

I hope you will walk along with me. I pray that, if you do, you are blessed, that you have fellowship with the Father through Jesus, and that your joy may be full(1 John 1:3-4).

John addresses a myriad of topics full of rich theology that is inevitably practical. From assurance of salvation, to the atonement, to how we treat others in the church, John is diverse.

Your feedback is always appreciated.
