God's Vision for Children and Their Parents

October 20, 2019 Speaker: John Bell Series: Ephesians

Passage: Ephesians 6:1–6:3

Point 1: Honour your father and your mother. (Exodus 20:12)

  • To honour our father and our mother is to begin with recognition that our very existence is dependent upon them.
  • The promise gives us a great clue as to at least one of the reasons why this commandment is so important: parents had an important role to play in communicating the covenant’s requirements to their children.
  • The commandment does not limit its applicability to only good fathers and mothers.
  • To honour your father and your mother does not presuppose that at every stage of your existence you should obey them.

 

Point 2: Children, obey your father and mother in the Lord. (Ephesians 6:1-3; Col. 3:20)

 

Point 3: Hate your father and mother. (Luke 14:26-27)
