In our parenting and pastoring, we are laboring to show teenagers that God is their source of greatest delight, and the payoff to this theological idea is practical.
Does God Send People to Hell for Sexual Sin?
What gets us into heaven isn’t the absence of sin, it’s the presence of Christ.
When we have an eternal outlook, it keeps us from exasperating our children by pushing too hard toward earthly goals.
My preaching and teaching to teenagers is always more vibrant when I am aware of my own death.
It’s not actually up to our children to be masters of their own destinies. And it’s certainly not up to us as their parents.
The only sure thing you have in this life is God Himself: You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.
The gospel isn’t a band-aid for a surface wound; it’s a total renovation of the heart.
