Public Service announcements talk about it. And social programs are created to compensate for the lack of it. Yet God has cautioned us from the beginning regarding it. What am I talking about? The absence of Fathers in the home. When the Lord created marriage, He created the structure and safety within the home to compliment it also. Today on Sound Doctrine Pastor Jeff Johnson helps us to see how God has provided an atmosphere of comfort and safety within the Christian home. We invite you to join us today as we delve into our second day of Parent Child relationships in Ephesians 6.

Parenting is a downhill job. Paul told Timothy that he remembered the genuine faith that first dwelt in his grandmother Lois, and went down his mother Eunice, and he was persuaded was deposited into Timothy. Faith in Christ went from Lois down to Timothy. And If our families are to be places where Jesus is passed on, simply inserting Bible facts in their heads won’t do. It must be seen with Mom & Dad. In today’s special edition of Sound Doctrine Pastor Jeff Johnson helps us to see the importance of a Christ centered home. And he gives us Biblical principles by which God can make our homes a place where Jesus is at home. With more on that, we begin our study titled, “Parent-Child Relationships Part 1” for today’s edition of Sound Doctrine.

It is almost a parody when one married couple sees the way another married couple interacts and shows their love for each other. Sometimes as husbands there is pressure to measure up to that example of love. Today on Sound Doctrine Pastor Jeff Johnson shows how the example that we need to be following is actually even higher because it is found in Jesus and how He loves the church. But the good news is that Jesus gives us the way to go and the power to love our wives the way He calls us to.

No matter how long you have been married, there are areas that God wants to work on, improve, and alter so that He is more evident. As husbands the usual response is to forge into the image we think it should be, or a vague understanding of what God has made it to be. In today’s edition of Sound Doctrine Pastor Jeff Johnson has given us a way to know for certain how the Lord desires our marriages to be: Dying to self. Jesus said if anyone wants to be His disciples we need to deny ourselves, take up our crosses, and follow after Him.

Marriage is a reflection of your relationship with the Lord. Far from God many times results in distance in marriage. When a spouse tries to have their proverbial walk with Jesus and still maintain their sin in the world, the end result is frustration, distance, and problems in marriage. In our time in Sound Doctrine today Pastor Jeff Johnson reminds us that God has created harmony in marriage, but it is through two people who are yielded to the Lord. As we begin our series titled, “To Walk in Harmony, the Husband” we begin to see how the responsibilities God has given to the husband play into the character and peace in marriage. With more on that let’s join Pastor Jeff in Ephesians 5 for today’s episode of Sound Doctrine.
