We had five families that dedicated their little ones to the Lord last Sunday. They stood and told us that they wanted to raise their sweet children God’s way. In today’s world, that is not an easy task. The good news is that we, as their church family, get to join them on this wonderful journey. We get the privilege to love on them and teach them about Jesus.
“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb, a reward.”Psalm 127:3
Psalm 100:2 says, “Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing.” I can’t think of a better way to serve the Lord with gladness than teaching our children about Jesus. There are so many different opportunities to teach them. The world doesn’t care if our children know Jesus. In fact, satan would love for our children to not know Jesus, but our children need to know Jesus.
We are reminded in Psalm 127:3, “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb, a reward.” Will you join me in accepting these gifts? Will you join me in building God’s Kingdom and walking in obedience of making disciples? What a reward it is to play a part in a child’s life and helping them know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. There are 168 hours in a week. We only have them at church for an hour or two a week, but we sure do have the most important work to do in that hour or two.
