How Can Fathers Talk to Their Children About Significant Events?

With the cross before them, we ask the Spirit to turn our children’s attention to the implications of the cross for significant events in this world. We teach them to ask questions such as, “If God’s plan included Christ’s death and that death takes care of my biggest problem (my sin), then how could this sovereign God fail to do right, ultimately?” We are doing with our children what Paul does with us in Romans 8:31–39. We are asking and answering rhetorical questions with them, the force of which is the conclusion Paul draws in this passage: because of Christ, all will finally be well for His people, no matter what happens to them or in the world around them.
