We must keep our eyes on Jesus, who leads us and makes our faith complete. He endured the shame of being nailed to a cross, because he knew that later on he would be glad he did. Now he is seated at the right side of God’s throne! Heb 12:2
I can’t even imagine the pain He must have suffered for us. I have read and heard how horrible the agony would have been. I shudder and feel terrible for my part in His pain.
This is a part of the scripture that we all must read and understand.
He was born as the Son of God to come to
- make disciples
- then die for our sins.
God came to us as the Son to be able to free us from sin so that we could come before Him free of evil.
Before Jesus ascended to heaven He gave the gift of the Holy Spirit to all people. With this gift, we are able to communicate with Him any time we want to. We are to bring everything to Him in prayer. Even the littlest thing as to what route to take while driving. He sincerely means He always wants an open line of communication.
This is something we are to teach our children as they grow. They need to know that Jesus came to bring us the gift of eternal life. Teach them that a prayer can be as simple as Help! That God is always there to help and comfort them. He needs them to learn to trust Him and talk to Him all of the time.
Read them stories from a children’s Bible and then talk with them about the message that God wants them to understand.
How can I help you teach the children to rely on God?
