Fear of God Devotional: Self Sacrificing Headship

How do fathers raise their children in a Christ-centered environment?

Jeff Pollard explains in this video that when God appoints a man to be the husband of his wife and instructs him to love her as Christ loves the church, it is an astonishing requirement. To try to get the modern American man to understand what it means to live as a self-sacrificing husband is still a great challenge.

We have been so brainwashed and enculturated by today’s culture that many men, husbands, and fathers don’t know how to create a Christ-centered environment to raise their children in. They don’t understand the value of family worship. Christian fathers must desire to bring their children up in a home where Christ is honored. Fathers must read Scripture to their children and both parents ought to pray for their children.

Colossians 3:17 (NKJV) – “And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”
