Jesus as Lord

In Ephesians 4:14, the Apostle Paul tells us that we are no longer to be like children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning. In essence, Paul is warning us to deepen our understanding of the truths of God’s Word so that we might not be led astray by false teaching. New Testament scholar Michael Kruger warns us that in today’s world, many in the church are believing the false teaching which says that Jesus is a model for how we should live, rather than an object for our worship. This way of thinking is leading many of our kids into believing that Jesus is only one of many moral teachers we can follow, rather than truly God and truly man. We need to teach our kids that yes, Jesus is a moral example and he has called us to come and follow. But Jesus also has divine authority and He is both our Lord and our Savior. Teach your kids that Jesus’ moral teaching only works when we worship him as Lord.
