Family Values

I was convicted by a friend of mine’s recent post on Facebook. A.J. Gibson and his wife, Ruth, serve as pioneer church planters in Mexico. I’m challenged not only with his goal to reach the unreached people of Mexico, but also to reach his children’s hearts in daily life with the Gospel. He writes…

I want my children/family to…

  1. value and pursue Jesus above all else in life,
  2. completely surrender their life to Jesus’ lordship,
  3. live for others and not themselves,
  4. live in a culture of grace and gospel where love, repentance, and forgiveness are a way of life,
  5. daily, relentlessly pursue sanctification from sin and transformation into Christlikeness, and
  6. live life for the glory of God.

This a teaching tool for his children…

Thanks, A.J., for not only living the Gospel in front of your children, but also modeling Gospel-parenting in front of friends and acquaintances.
