Taking Action

Assuming you think that God had a good idea in His creation and assignments to men and women, here are a few ways to prepare yourself and your children to be the right kind of husband and father.
The automatic change is a man’s conversion, his salvation. The Bible describes this event in strong terms. Here are a few of them:

• He has been crucified with Christ (Rom. 6:6, Col. 2:20).
• He has risen with Christ (Col. 3:1).
• He is dead to sin (Rom. 6:2).
• He has put off the old man (Col. 3:9).
• He has put on the new man (Col. 3:10).

This conversion determines the necessity and the possibility of all subsequent requirements (see Romans 8:3-4). Because these things are true of all believers, it is normal for a Christian man to be responsible.
