I heard someone say a few days ago, “See, that just goes to
show you that you can raise your kids in church all you want to,
but……” and it literally shattered my heart.
All because that kid had made a mistake.
All because that kid’s sin was brought to light.
Let me just tell you…… We don’t raise our kids in church
so they can grow up perfect. We don’t raise our kids in
church because it magically makes them unable to sin or
We do however raise our kids in church so WHEN they
mess up and WHEN they fall short, they will know just
WHO to run to.
So they know that their Lord and Savior will NEVER leave
nor forsake them no matter how big or small their mess up
So they know their Heavenly Father will always
leave the 99 if they are that ONE that needs saving.
So they will know what GRACE is like and give it out freely.
So they will know the unconditional love of their
Father and love those around them just the
same regardless of anything else.
So they know that there is absolutely NOTHING in this
world they could do that our Saviors blood hasn’t already
I will never apologize for raising my children in church.
I will never apologize for making sure our family makes
church a priority over anything else.
Because it’s more than just a song and a sermon. It’s more
than just a memorized Bible verse in Sabbath School.
It’s for when this cruel world we live in comes knocking on
their door, that they will personally know the solid rock on
which they stand.
6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of
heaven, having the everlasting Gospel to preach
unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every
nation and kindred, and tongue and people,
7 saying with a loud voice, “Fear God and give glory
to Him, for the hour of His Judgment is come.
Worship Him that made heaven and earth, and the
sea and the fountains of waters.”
Revelation 14:6-7, KJV
