The Christian Family in a Modern World
Self-help books are not shy on advice for contemporary marriage. In fact, it is common for present-day culture to advance the presumption that a happy and fulfilling marriage is ultimately defined in terms of our own self-gratification. Likewise, bookstores often dedicate entire sections of books to the topic of parenting, many of which overlook the fundamentals of childhood obedience and respect.
In his letter to the Colossians, the Apostle Paul sets forth a prototype for families to model in alignment with God’s desires for family relationships: “Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them. Children, obey your parents in everything for this pleases the Lord.” This is simple, practical advice that contemporary culture often rebukes.
In the series, The Christian Family, Alistair Begg explores the practical application of these essential instructions. Listen online, on the radio, or on your mobile phone, and share this important teaching on a God-centered family with those you love.
