Sermons about Grandparents
Parenting is a sacred calling. When the Lord entrusts us with children, our privilege involves not only providing for them materially, but ensuring that we disciple them in the knowledge and love of God. This concept was clearly established by God when He appointed Abraham as the father of the Hebrew nation. Genesis 18:18-19 explicitly communicates that Abraham had the responsibility of directing his children and household in the way of the Lord. God has attached this responsibility to the promise of blessings when he faithfully carried it out.
This morning, as we celebrate Grandparents’ Sunday, I would like to take some time to challenge our grandparents to consider the calling that they have received from the Lord. There’s no doubt in my mind that our grandparents today are being driven to fulfill much greater responsibilities to fill in the gaps in the lives of their grandchildren. Consider for example the reality that nowadays there’s a need for both parents to work in order to cope with the financial needs of their family. Who do you think gets to spend more quality time with their children, especially during the formative years? Most of the time, it is the grandparents. I see this as a tremendous privilege to fulfill your calling of imprinting the fear and love of God in the lives of grandchildren.
Being able to pray and draw ourselves in the presence of the Almighty God is one of our highest privileges as believers of Jesus. It is literally through prayers that we are able to experience great blessings. Sometimes we have the tendency to treat prayers in the same way we treat physical exercise. How many of us know that physical exercise is good for our over-all health? How many of you know prayer is truly essential in your Christian life? How many of you really pray as much as you could? I trust we would be able to establish praying as a habit because I know it could bring into ouor lives tremendous benefits.
