How Do We Live on Mission to our Family?

Everyday mission must not neglect our actual, immediate, and extended family.

Family imagery fills the most common metaphors for the church in the New Testament.

How do we live on mission to our family?

  1. Diligently teach children. Parents are to be the primary disciplers of their children. We cannot farm out our child’s spiritual formation to a church, school, camp, or trip. However, our community should come alongside of us and help.
  2. Be faithful to adults. As Jesus patiently laid down His own life for us, so we are sent to the unbelieving adults in our families. As Jesus revealed the character and work of God in his words, actions, death and resurrection, so we can reveal the character and work of God in our words, actions, and death to self.
