My daughter and I were were talking about raising children so that they embrace faith in Christ instead of walk away (as it seems so many we are aware of do). I was thinking of:
But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed what he has heard from us?” So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ. Rom 10:16-17
“Faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” Read aloud, speak, preach the word of the Lord to your children daily. Forsake not one jot or tittle of it. Even Leviticus. (Especially Leviticus in light of Gal 3:23-25 and Deu 6:4-9.) Then live that word in your homes. Live love, grace, forgiveness, humility, and worship. Live holiness. Forsake wrath, embrace patience, kindness, and self-control. Do not be a hearer of the word only, but also a doer.
“Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” Luk 12:32
