What a privilege and an honor it was to begin teaching through the first letter of Peter at Vann Avenue. As Family Discipleship Pastor, one of my passions and desires is to encourage and equip men to lead in their homes as husbands and fathers biblically. What does that mean? Do we allow culture to define our roles or do we go to the Word of God and seek His direction for our homes. As we continue through 1 Peter we will come to his exhortations to husbands. Peter, like Paul, will ground our role as husbands in light of what Christ has done for us at Calvary. Do the husbands at Vann lead their homes with a view of the Cross? More importantly, do I lead my home through the lens of the gospel? Check out this current blog series by Tim Challies titled Leadership in the Home. As he continues this series we will also talk about it. Wives, please let your husbands know about this because we need to help one another as we seek to follow Christ. Men, regardless of what you might already assume you know, let us humbly and reverently approach God and seek His wisdom for our homes.
