Fear of God Devotional: How Does Reformation Happen in the Family?

How does reformation happen in the family?

David Eddy explains in this video the main way that reformation occurs in a family is through repentance. There is no greater beginning point than the repentance of the father. When the father really desires to follow the Lord, there is a natural outflow of change that will occur within the family. 

For instance, when the president of a nation goes in a wrong direction, the country will also go in the wrong direction. When fathers want to lead because they love the Lord and they want to live their lives in a way that would please God, that’s when you see change happen. 

Ephesians 6:4 (NKJV) – “And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.”
