Know God's Purpose For Children
How did Abraham receive salvation? By believing the Gospel. “Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. . . . And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed” (Galatians 3:6–8). By faith in Christ we are “the children of Abraham” and heirs of the promise of blessing to all the nations of the earth. (See Galatians 3:9, 14–16.) God’s purpose for children is to raise up Godly generations who will carry out His promise to Abraham.
