To train our children in the Lord is gospel-centered parenting. So we tell them about Jesus’ life, death, resurrection, ascension, and his intercession for them. We tell them the good news of all that salvation brings: full forgiveness, adoption, redemption, atonement, and propitiation (Rom. 3:25; 1 John 2:2). You don’t have to use all those big, delicious theological words, but you can break them down for your kids in their own words and everyday situations.
