Children of Faith, Part 7

How many children across this world are lost today because they don’t know the truth! How many children today are growing up in homes where religion isn’t discussed, let alone any talk of the need for Christ? How many children today are walking a road straight to hell because momma and daddy don’t want to force church on their baby?

Let me tell you something, friends: You may not want to force religion on your child, and that’s your prerogative, but the world out there has no problem forcing their morals and views on them. They have no problem at all with giving your child something to believe…

They start when they are young, leading them away from the truth with flashy alternatives. Soon enough, the questions start.

“Does the Bible say that?” “Did God really say that?”

In the end, those precious babies will be so convinced of the alternative that there will be little chance to reach them without a move of God Himself. Ravi Zacharias said it well once.

“If you don’t influence your children, your neighbors will;
If you don’t influence your children, television will;
If you don’t influence your children, the humanistic, secularistic media will;
If you don’t influence your children, the system of education in this world will control them until they no longer know what they believe anymore.

Be the example you need to be for your child. Raise them with an understanding of Jesus. After all, Jesus did say, “Let the little children come to Me.”

We read in Mark 10, verses 13 – 14, of how the people were bringing their little ones to Jesus so that he would bless them, or even just touch them. The Disciples though stood in their way, turning them back so as not to disturb the Lord with such trivial matters. When Jesus saw it, it upset Him, and He said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God.

Friends, He said, let the little children come to me.

He didn’t say, “Let them wait until they are older first.”

He didn’t say, “Let them live their life first.”

He didn’t say, “Let them finish their games and shows first.”

He said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God.”
