Sermon from Psalm 78:1-8 by Pastor Nathanael Mayhew.
Theme: What is Christian Education?
In this Psalm, Asaph speaks about the importance of Christian Education. Christian Education is founded upon the Word of God. The truths of God's Word are foolishness to the world, and hidden to it. This education which is based upon the Word of God begins in the home. While the church is called to aid in Christian Education, it really begins in the home, with parents instructing their children and bringing them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Christian Education points people to the works of God, to the Savior that He has sent to deliver to sinners from sin. Such an education is vital and has eternal results. We can teach our children Reading, Writing and Arithmetic, and give them every opportunity in sports and extra curricular activities, but if we don't instruct them in the truth of God's Word and salvation, we have not given our children what is most important. Our only hope is found in God and in Jesus as our Savior.
