My desire is to grapple together here over how well off we are with God through Christ,
and to live from His opinion of us.

Our Christian children are not how they behave—they’re who God says they are. Without excusing poor fleshly behavior, we must not allow it to sell the lie that our kids are how they look. When the surface of our children looks particularly stormy, we must know that under the waves, something is amiss, and we need to go there. If our children’s flesh is on display in all of its ugly glory, we must rescue them! Revive them! Build them up in Christ, remind them of how Christ has made them, and make sure they know He is in them and happy about it at all times. If their behavior is stinky, it’s usually because their thinking is too. You can help them and interrupt the demonic game against them.
