In the midst of folding laundry, coordinating carpool schedules, and breaking up fights, many parents get lost. Feeling pressure to do everything "right" and raise up "good" children, it's easy to lose sight of our ultimate purpose as parents in the quest for practical tips and guaranteed formulas. In this life-giving book, Paul Tripp offers parents much more than a to-do list. Instead, he presents us with a big-picture view of God's plan for us as parents. Outlining fourteen foundational principles centered on the gospel, he shows that we need more than the latest parenting strategy or list of techniques. Rather, we need the rescuing grace of God—grace that has the power to shape how we view everything we do as parents. Freed from the burden of trying to manufacture life-change in our children's hearts, we can embrace a grand perspective of parenting overflowing with vision, purpose, and joy.
We glory in the cross! By grace we are saved through faith not of works, we boast in the Lord alone. We trust in the finished work of Christ on the cross, our sins are paid for and we are saved and sealed. Knowing that Christ is our foundation and growing in the knowledge of God is a process, where you start can make or break you. The Gospel of the Grace of God according to the mystery revealed to Paul our special apostle is where you begin.
“But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.” – 1 Cor 11:3
Husband and wife are one in the body of Christ, much confusion by none other than ignorance of doctrine has hidden this valuable information. In this book Parenting 14 Gospel Principles, I have to admit a huge sigh of relief came over me while reading this book. A smile came across my face as I read, pointing to the cross in which we glory in! Then as I read further I could see the mix of wrong doctrine being applied along with correct doctrine. That is what rebuke is for my jsfriends. We cannot mix what wasn't written to us with what was, Romans through Philemon was written to the body of Christ. What? Study Romans - Philemon which was written by our special apostle Paul, knowing: "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. [2 Timothy 3:16-17] "Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my (Paul) gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began," Romans 16:25 "Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my (Paul) gospel:" 2 Timothy 2:8 < You read this and can clearly understand that the 12 apostles are not ours, they belong to faithful Israel, they did not preach the glory of the cross apostle Paul (who the resurrected Lord revealed the Gospel of Grace according to the mystery to) did. Guiding our children by the grace we are under, knowing no man is justified by the law but by faith. We edify our family where they lack and need rebuke by the knowledge of the truth given to us that we must rightly divide mystery "the Church, Body of Christ" from prophecy "chosen Israel". We are in the dispensation of grace and teach our children accordingly. “For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.” Romans 7:18 KJV “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:” Philippians 1:6 KJV “But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.” Romans 8:11 KJV “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.” Galatians 2:20-21 KJV “For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.”Philippians 2:13 KJV “Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.” 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 KJV “But he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 10:17 KJV
Knowing that is is God who works in us, we guide our children in the knowledge of the truth so they can be equip ambassadors of Christ redeeming the time, teaching others, seeing souls saved and saints edified!! To God the only wise be glory through Jesus Christ our Lord!
Know the Gospel of the Grace of God revealed to Apostle Paul:
“Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:” [1 Corinthians 15:1-4] “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” [Ephesians 2:8-9]
