Raising Image Bearers: Practices

, Media, On Being Human, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

On Being Human

Today, we look at what it means to be human as we raise image bearers and some practical methods for doing so. Ephesians 4:32; Ephesians 5:2, 25; 2 Corinthians 8:7, 9; and Romans 15:7 pertain to concepts of godly parenting: to raise children who fear God and cultivate hearts that trust and love their King. Parenting is an overflow of the heart, and God must be our foundation, example, and goal as our children are formed through our influence on their life.

Raising Image Bearers: Foundations

, Media, On Being Human, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

On Being Human

Today we look at what it means to be human as we raise image bearers, i.e. parenting. Proverbs 1:7 and 4:23 instruct on the foundations of parenting: to raise children who fear God and cultivate hearts that trust and love their King. Parenting is an overflow of the heart, and God must be our foundation, example, and goal as our children are formed through our influence on their life.

The Practice of Parenting

, Media, Proverbs: Living Wisdom, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Proverbs: Living Wisdom
This week we’ll look at the practice of parenting. We’re taking two weeks here because there is much misinformation and dysfunction surrounding this topic. As we saw last week, 40% of children have no involved father. Every year, nearly 1 million kids are left with one parent because of divorce. Only 41% of kids grow up in a two parent household. In fact, sociologists have noted that this is the first generation in our country’s history that think divorce, separation and single-parent households are a normal part of family life. We live in a day and age when what is deemed normal and natural is, in fact, incredibly abnormal and unnatural. It is clear that we are in need of wisdom on this topic and that’s exactly what Proverbs offers us. Whether you’re single, newly married, or empty nester there is something for you here.

Proverbs: Living Wisdom
This week we are continuing our series through the ancient, yet incredibly relevant, book of Proverbs. After spending just over a month on a variety of issues related to biblical marriage, we now reach the all-important topic of parenting. What is the goal of parenting? What does it take to parent well? What are the potential pitfalls of parenting? What do we need to be aware of? These are the kinds of questions we’re going to tackle over the next two weeks.

Parents and Children

, , Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

In Ephesians 6:1-5, we move onto the next set of household relationships: parents and children. These relationships (parents to children; children to parents) are the most dynamic, complicated and influential relationships we have. Here, Paul explains that the primary task of parenting is to cultivate a Jesus-centered home and the primary task of children is to honor their parents.
