there is nothing more that i want than for my children to be drawn closer to Christ.
so, i make it a point to constantly impart to them who He really is in our practical lives here and in our coming lives after.
when blessings come, whether big or small, everyday or monumental, my kids are always the first to hear me attribute all to Him and get to know about my gratitude and joy. it’s automatic.
and, it also helps that i am far from a perfect person because they get to see and experience firsthand how God works His miracles on me.
“if we simply preach the effects of redemption in the human life instead of the revealed, divine truth regarding Jesus Himself, the result is not new birth in those who listen. The result is a refined religious lifestyle, and the Spirit of God cannot witness to it because our preaching is in a realm other than His. we must make sure that we are living in such harmony with God that as we proclaim His truth He can create in others those things which He alone can do.” — My Utmost For His Highest
my kids must see Christ alive in me.
“my Lord, be with me.”
