DSC05477Ephesians 6:4 says, “Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.”

Men, we have a unique role by God to train up our children by teaching them the Word of God.  This includes the children of our churches as well, after we have first been diligent to be intentional about directing our own children to God, praying that he makes them lovers of himself and his glory.

These study notes have been very helpful for Jodi and me as we have taught through some very effective material from DesiringGod.org for children.  Click on this link to download these notes and may God be honored to glorify himself as he leads you and your children into delight and enjoying him above all things!

My Grandmother: Theo Youngberg nonny

My grandparents loved the Lord very much, loved me very much, and God has used them both mightily in my life as great “means” to make me into the image of His blessed Son.  Here is the account of the message that I gave at her funeral.  May your faith be strengthened by God as you hear of what He has done in the life of my grandmother – a life well lived…

My grandmother was a saint, and if you believe in Christ as your only hope from the Wrath of a perfectly holy God, then according to 1 Corinthians 1, you are a saint too.  A saint is one who not just professes belief in Christ, but one who also continues in belief to the end (Heb 3:14).  The faith of my grandmother was alive and believing for over 70 years.   As we look at her life after 95 years, we ask the question, “How?”  “How did she persevere in belief to the end?”    Click here for the rest of the words… Theo Youngberg – How a Saint Persevered to the end – Print
