Kingdom Marriage 5 - Parenting


"... bring them up ..."

Ephesians 6'4.


The wonder of producing a child comes to God's marrieds when He gives creational life to their love with conception. And bringing up children begins right there!

First-time parents are particularly stunned and delighted when their baby arrives, and more so Believers who receive him/her with thanksgiving.

More thanksgiving follows with a celebration among the Lord's Family to present the baby to Him on His day.

Think of the comparison of when Mary and Joseph presented the new-born Jesus at the Temple. They had to follow the Law of Moses.

Here's what they were required to do:

"... when eight days were completed for the circumcision of the Child, His name was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before He was conceived in the womb.

Now when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were completed, they brought Him to Jerusalem to present Him to the Lord," Luke 2'21-22.

Despite the very unusual situation that Mary and Joseph were going through, they obeyed with a sincere worshipful disposition. How simple things are for believing parents today.

How wonderful it is to be able to present new babies to our heavenly Father in Jesus' name. And to have the family of God agreeing with Parents in their desire to bring up their child according to His will.
