Episode 47:What should a life look like that is in Covenant with Jesus? (audio)

March 23, 2020

We, and our kids, are in a covenant with God through Jesus, but what does that look like? How can we encourage our kids in something we don't understand? 

Welcome to the journey as we reveal the great life that God has for your and your kids... and point out some common misunderstandings or misconceptions about our covenant with God, and even the example that Jesus set for us.

Josh attempts to try illuminate that Jesus was human and if He really was able to grow in wisdom and standing with God and man, then that implies that He did make mistakes at times. He didn't feel he did a good job explaining it, so here is some clarification: Jesus did not sin, but not every mistake is a sin. He had to learn how to tie his sandals. He memorized verses and may not have got them right on the first attempt. In the same way, we need to allow our kids the space to make a mistake, and not make a consequence equal to sin.
