343A Gospel-Formed Identity: Developing a Faith that Will Last
The goal of generational discipleship is for our kids' thinking, affections, and habits of life to be shaped by Christ's story. We'll look at a few key areas. Creating intentional time that is built into the rhythms of the family's life to think about, talk about, and live out the gospel. Capturing and leveraging opportunities in the course of everyday life for the purpose of gospel-centered conversations. Making and marking occasions to celebrate and commemorate significant spiritual milestones of God's work in the family and child's life. What does it look like to lead our children in patterns of thinking, affections, and life patterns captured and shaped by Jesus's redemptive story?
