Date: September 27, 2015

This Sunday I finish our series on the family as we examine how God speaks to children in His Word.

Children are sinners who need to be saved.  Jesus welcomes children to come to Him.  Adult children also have responsibilities to their parents.  Jesus is the perfect Son.

Please read Ephesians 6:1-3 before listening to this sermon.

Parenting is More than a Formula

Text: Ephesians 6:4
Speaker: Jim Newheiser
Outline: PDF
Date: September 20, 2015

Having spent my past several messages on defending marriage, I decided to spend two more weeks talking about parents and children.  Many parents are desperately looking for the formula which provides the key to successfully raising our children.  Many books and seminars promise to teach parents the secret to success.  Sadly, some of these are legalistic (going beyond Scripture) and unbiblically deterministic (promising results if the formula is followed).

What the Bible actually teaches about parenting is pretty simple.  Discipline them, instruct them and don’t provoke them to anger (Eph. 6:4).  Every family has to work out how they will implement these basic instructions.

What does the Bible teach about why kids turn out as they do?  Does good parenting guarantee good kids?  How do we explain why some kids from Christian homes turn out well and others rebel?  How can we bring the gospel into our parenting?

Please read Ephesians 6:1-4 and Psalm 127 before listening to this sermon.

Wives Defending Marriage

Text: Ephesians 5:22-24
Speaker: Jim Newheiser
Outline: PDF
Date: September 13, 2015

We will complete our series on defending marriage as we consider the roles of wives in defending marriage.  The breakdown of a biblical view of the family did not begin with the legalization of homosexual marriage.  Rather the rejection of other biblical principles concerning God’s design for marriage inevitably led to the redefinition of marriage.

One key area which not only the world, but large sections of the church abandoned a generation ago is God’s design for men and women to have different roles in both the family and in the church.  Even many evangelicals have rejected the biblical teaching that men and women have complementary roles and have embraced our culture’s view that men and women are essentially the same in the home and in the church.  I believe that this paved the way for our current situation.  If we are all the same, then any two of the same thing can form a marriage.

On the other hand, Scripture teaches that God created us “male and female” (Gen. 1:27) with different  roles (1 Cor. 11:9).  Marriage, therefore, requires one of each gender and cannot take place between two of the same.

How I thank God for the ladies in our church who embrace their complementary role in the home and in the church.  By so doing they are defending God’s design for marriage and functioning as salt and light in the world.  In this sermon we will consider what Scripture has to say about the helping (Gen. 2:18) role of wives in marriage and how they are spiritually equal to their husbands while still choosing to follow their husbands’ leadership.

Please read Ephesians 5:22-24, 1 Peter 3:1-7 and 1 Corinthians 11:1-12 before listening to this sermon.
