"Additionally, the more I experience the life-transforming power of the gospel, the more confident I am in speaking it to others, both saved and lost. I know what the gospel can do in people's lives if they would believe the fullness of it, because I see what it is doing in me and in others."As parents, we don't need to merely teach Biblical truths. We cannot be satisfied, for ourselves and for those around us, with mere knowledge about God. Even the demons know who God is, and they even respond with emotions, but not repentant faith (James 2:19). We need to make everything about the gospel. Talk to your children, whether they are saved or not, about how you are growing in the gospel, about what God is teaching you and how you are trusting in Him. And let them know that in your good deeds, your life is merely a reflection of what God has done for you through His Son Jesus Christ.
