You must teach these commandments to your children and talk about them when you are at home or out for a walk, at bedtime and the first thing in the morning.
Deuteronomy 6:7

We usually hear about parents having to “drag” their kids to church. This weekend at Christian Life Church we are “Dragging Our Parents To Church.” We are going to have a blast during our weekend services as we worship the Lord as our children do each week in kid’s church.

Our verse in Deuteronomy tells us parents that we are responsible to continually teach our children about God. Basically, we are all called to be missionaries to our children. No matter their age we are called to reach our children for Christ. A missionary’s purpose is to evangelize and disciple a people group. As parents we are to evangelize and disciple our children.

Evangelization and discipleship don’t just happen. It takes a plan, diligent effort, and a lot of prayer. The enemy is working hard using the things of this world to distract our children from the most important relationship in their lives: their relationship with God. We can’t let the enemy steal our children. We must turn their hearts toward their Father in Heaven. Don’t doubt your ability to do this as a parent. God called you, He will equip you.
