In this message, from His series, Awakening Today’s Family, Pastor Jamie Page calls spiritual parents to the task of teaching their children who they are in Christ. Children act out of the identity; out of the way they see themselves. As children realize who they are in Christ, as portrayed in the opening chapter of Ephesians, they’ll begin to live in a manner congruent with that revealed identity.
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, 4 even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love 5 he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. 7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, 8 which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight
