As followers of the Lutheran faith, there are a lot of things that we are called to do. We’re expected to be pious and devout in our relationship with Christ. When the sermon on the mound was given, we were asked to be peacemakers and promised that the meek would inherit the earth. In this modern day and age, the temptations of sin and vice are almost inescapable. In an age where social media has become a daily occurrence in our lives, it’s more important than ever that we stay strong and strive to maintain our steadfast devotion to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
How can we do this? Well, it’s unhealthy to lock ourselves and our children away from the world and hope that the temptations of sin would all of a sudden be absent from our existence. We have to live in the material world, but we have the opportunity to walk in the spiritual one and embrace his message to its fullest potential.
How do we do this? Especially with a world that seems to be descending into abject materialism and apathy? It’s simple. We must become more acquainted with our bible. The family is a sacred institution of the Lutheran faith, and the word of God is one of the best ways to strengthen its morality and virtue and grow stronger in its relationship with Christ. When Martin Luther began the Protestant Reformation, one of his main objectives was to have the scriptures translated from Latin into German. He felt that the teachings should be accessible to all people and not just a select few. Since then, the bible has been translated into a variety of languages, which allows us to go out into the world and become “fishers of men.”
While the world has changed around us, his teachings have remained consistent. Having a family bible study is a wonderful way to strengthen the relationship that you all share with one another and grow closer as a family with Christ. It’s one of the best ways to see that his teachings still apply to our lives today. This is an education that your children will benefit from for years to come.
