Before we can tell our children about the Lord, we must develop our own fellowship with God. We can not lead a child any further than we have come. We then must teach the Word naturally, spontaneously, and consistently to our children.
Moses, speaking to the Israelites, said, “Hear, O Israel…you shall love the Lord with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength, and these words which I command today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you talk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.” (Deuteronomy 6:4–7)
“The Bible is alive; it speaks to me. It has feet; it runs after me. It has hands; it lays hold of me!” —Martin Luther
If we want to turn our world upside down like the early church, we must get back to the principles they lived by. That includes continuing in the apostles’ doctrine by being learners of God’s Word. May His Word become part and parcel of our lives.
