Deuteronomy 6: 4-9

How to Pass Our Faith to the Next Generation

1.   __________________________.

“…We demolish arguments and every proud thing that is raised up against the knowledge of God, and we take every thought captive to obey Christ.”  II Corinthians 10:4b-5 (CSB)

“But in your hearts regard Christ the Lord as holy, ready at any time to give a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you.”   I Peter 3:15 (CSB)

2.   __________________________.

“And you must think constantly about these commandments I am giving you today.  You must teach them to your children and talk about them when you are at home or out for a walk; at bedtime and the first thing in the morning.  Tie them on your finger, wear them on your forehead, and write them on the doorposts of your house!” Deuteronomy 6: 6-9 (LB)

3.   ___________________________.

“But if you are unwilling to obey the Lord, then decide today whom you will obey. Will it be the gods of your ancestors beyond the Euphrates or the gods of the Amorites here in this land? But as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.”  Joshua 24:15 (LB)
