How to Raise Your Children in the Covenant of Grace
“…what he promises he can also fulfill. » Romans 4.21
Today, many parents are looking for the “secret” to a successful education. In Parenting according to God's promises: how to raise your children under the covenant of grace , Joel R. Beeke reveals to us a difficult truth to hear: there is no secret. When it comes to giving children what they need most—renewed hearts that trust in Christ for the forgiveness of their sins—parents are helpless. When children come to the Lord, it is only by the grace of God.
Although it is true that parents are powerless to save their children, they can still have hope, because God has promised to provide for all the needs of those who belong to him and to bless them and their families. By trusting in these great promises, parents can raise their children “in the discipline and admonition of the Lord” while knowing that He will bring them to faith.
This book is not just a parenting manual. It puts parental responsibilities into perspective by leading mothers and fathers not to rely on their abilities, but to trust more in the God who forms all children from the womb
