Family Ministry Plan Step 2: Parent Commissioning
Passage: Psalms 127:3–127:4, Deuteronomy 6:4–6:9
Did you know that God desires you to mold and shape your child in such a way that when he or she graduates high school they are ready to impact their world with the Gospel. God has called you as parents to fufill the primary role of teaching your children about Him and His ways so that they are equiped to make a difference in the world for Him when they leave the home.
While this call from God on your life might seem overwhelming God has made arrangements so that you don't have to disciple your child alone. God has given us the Holy Spirit to help us as we lead our children and as we live a life of a genuine follower of Jesus. The church is also part of God's plan in helping parents become the primary disciple makers at home and to also help teach and influence their children with the hopes of developing a love and hunger for God and His ways. The Holy Spirit and the Church is waiting to help and assist. As parents we should always be asking for the Holy Spirit's counsel as we are leading our families, He is just a prayer away. The local church also eagerly awaits your invitation for a partnership in helping you disciple your children. Parent Commissioning provides an opportunity for you to publicly invite both God and the loacl church in partnering with you in raising your children in the ways of God.
