The Sexual Vision

                  (A word of advice to Christian parents & teen teachers on sexual matters)

…Write the vision, and make it plain …that he may run that readeth it (Hab 2:2)

…for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame (Heb 12:2)

It’s not enough to do the job; the job must be done well. Working with teenagers can be one of the most challenging jobs on earth. It can also be one of the most worthwhile and fulfilling engagements of life. Out of the many things that plague teenagers of this century, sex is one of the most burdensome. This wasn’t the case before. In the past, the average age at which young persons married was much lower than the average they marry now.Read More »

Spiritual Parenting 101

Judges 13:8-13, Gen 18:19
The privilege to have a child comes with the responsibility of raising the child aright.
Children are good gifts from God, they are not a means to our selfish ends, they are not
an extension of our personalities, they are not investments for our latter years, they are
not symbols of our social status, they are not means to accomplish the dreams or goals
we never could or paths to correct our mistakes of the past, they are in themselves
unique, special and individual souls, gifts from God to us, not necessarily for us and as
such every parent becomes a co-laborer with God in accomplishing His purpose for that
individual child.Read More »

He Brings her

And Jehovah God buildeth up the rib which He hath taken out of the man into a woman, and bringeth her in unto the man;
Gen 2:22

I get convinced more and more that it is God who brings the woman to the man
He has placed. In speaking of how marriage should be, Jesus referenced Adam and Eve
in the beginning (Matt 19:8), so we can learn certain patterns from them. Read More »

No Ordinary Child

The woman became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She saw that he was a special baby and kept him hidden for three months Exo 2:2 MSG

 By faith Moses’ parents hid him for three months after he was born, because they saw he was no ordinary child Heb 11:23 NIV

Beauty is said to be in the eyes of the beholder, this statement proves true many times. The Egyptians in the text above saw the baby Moses as something to be killed, the parents saw something else. Many the times our experiences in life are shaped not by the situation itself but how we view the situation, this is especially true in parenting.Read More »
