New Birth . Though you gave birth to your children, only God can give them the new birth. As a believer, you must treat your children as Christian and you can have strong assurance that God will, according to His covenant mercies, regenerate them if He has not already done so. Only be diligent to bring them up in the fear and nurture of the LORD, making sure that from young, they love Christ, His church and the means of grace. Teach them that though they are in the world, they do not belong to the world; and likewise, though they are in the covenant, they are not of the covenant unless they believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, repent of their sin and walk in His ways.
