As those who serve in Children's Ministry, we may look at the world around us and wonder how we are ever going to be able to equip parents and grandparents so they are able to pass on a heritage of faith to the children they love when so many things which appeal to these children push them away from God. But, we do not have to be discouraged. We truly are able to equip parents and grandparents so they are able to be successful when it comes to passing on their faith. The “key” for helping the children grow to walk faithfully with God is found in God’s Word. Look at what we know to be true about God’s Word . . .
These verses make it clear, the answer – at least in part – to our questions and concerns about how to equip parents and grandparents, so they are able to help the children they love make the choice to love, know and walk with God, is found in God’s Word. While they can not make them choose to walk faithfully with God, God’s Word is powerful. God’s Word will help them know what is right in a world where so many are deceived. God’s Word will light their path. God’s Word will accomplish all God has purposed for it. God’s Word will enable these children to live lives which are faithful.
