This morning we have the privilege of seeing another child brought under the covenant through the sign of baptism. With that in mind, this morning, we will look at the incredible role of parents in the family life. It goes without saying that values are passed on from one generation to the next. Whatever parents hold in high esteem in their lives, almost always, these will be the things that their kids hold in high esteem in their lives. This is the baton that we are passing on to our kids in this relay called life. All of us have hope and dreams for our kids, the question is, are they the right hopes and dreams? The most important thing for you and I to pass on to our kids are the things that really matter in the end. Faith, hope, light, salvation, love, service, eternal life. And a lot of these things are forged in the family home by parents. Joshua certainly understood the power of parents. As he came to the end of his life, he called the leaders of Israel together for one final message. Knowing that he is only one step from death, he sounds a call to renewal. In the middle of his message we find those stirring words that have been quoted and memorized for over 3000 years, “But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord” (24:15). We need to use these words to spur each other on, and that is what we will do today.
