Kids Need Their Own Experience

 

“And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” (John 17:3 NKJV).

As a parent, it’s easy to think because you love God, and have gone to church all of your life, and have been diligent to make sure your kids attend church regularly, that they will just automatically love God and want to serve Him too. However, your kids won’t love God automatically just because you do.

They must have their own personal experience with Him and come to the saving knowledge of Jesus themselves.

As important as it is to make sure your kids are in church, it’s just as important for you to sow the Word into their hearts, live the Word in front of them, and pray over them diligently.

Pray this prayer over your children: “God, I pray for each of my children and ask that they have a personal encounter with Jesus Christ, and that they would accept Him as their Lord and Savior. I pray that Christ will actually dwell, settle down, abide, and make His permanent home in their hearts (Eph. 3:17 AMP), and that they will come to know Him in a very deep and personal way.”

THE TAKE AWAY

It’s important that we encourage our children to develop their own personal relationship with God from an early age and model that relationship for them.
