Teach Your Children to Live Free

Posted By Foundation for American Christian Education, Saturday, March 31, 2018

Commandment I:
I am the LORD your God, which have brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
Exodus 20:2

God speaks many ways to the children of men; by conscience, by providences, by his voice, to all which we ought carefully to attend; but he never spake at any time so as he spake the TEN COMMANDMENTS." Matthew Henry

Three important ideas to teach your children:

First:
God has the authority that must be obeyed. We can rest in His authority as absolute. All the issues of life rest on God’s authority asserted in the first commandment.

Second:
Obeying God keeps us from being a slave to anything or anyone else. The other nine Commandments protect us from slavery.

Third:
It is God’s will that we live free. God wants us to live in blessed liberty. “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” II Cor 3:23

Consider and Ponder: The first commandment embodies the essential truths we must inculcate in our children from birth to equip them for the blessed life they were created to live.
