New Passover Parents

Posted on May 15 2016, Pastor: Robert A. Wingfield


According to the Jewish liturgical calendar, there were three major fest days that were mandatory to be observed at the Temple: the Passover Feast, the Feast of Pentecost, and the Feast of Tabernacles. In particular, the Passover Feast was established in Exodus to have the entire family participating in the Passover Meal. As devout Jews, Mary and Joseph took the young Jesus to Jerusalem for the Passover observance. Today, Christians are to observe the New Passover, the Lord’s Supper, and to teach their children what and why that observance is necessary.

Children Must Be Taught How To Pose Questions. God invites inquiry. Throughout His ministry on earth, Jesus would respond to questions with questions of His own which subtly answered the original question, causing people to think and understand in ways they previously didn’t consider. Parents should teach their children to pose questions which also foster thought and deeper understanding.

Children Must Be Taught How To Eat Well. We are to assimilate the things of God, feasting on His Truths and Word. Children are to be consistently shown what Christ expects, and shun the worldly diet of pornography, secular humanism, political correctness, materialism, atheism, agnosticism, radicalism, socialism and transgenderism.

A Family That Eats Together Stays Together. Children must develop an appetite for the things of God. Parents can do this by teaching their children about the Lord’s Table, observing with them after their conversion as a family.
