The importance of Bible lessons

I was reviewing past posts and realized that I have not yet really written any Bible lesson posts. I will soon remedy that situation, for I believe that teaching the Bible to your child is the most important part of child rearing.

Being illiterate certainly is no laughing matter, but being illiterate will not send a person to Hell. Never knowing about and accepting Jesus Christ's blood payment for our sins will send a person straight to Hell, for Jesus said in John 3:17-18: "[17] For God sent not His Son {Jesus} into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. [18] He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not on Him is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."

If you yourself have never acknowledged that you are a sinner and asked Jesus to save you from your sins and become your Lord and Savior, you need to do so today, for no one is promised time beyond this moment right now. If you would like more information about God's simple plan of salvation please contact me using the contact information provided in the sidebar of this blog.

How do we teach our children about Jesus? I'm glad you asked. Tell them Bible stories. Pray with them. Have family devotions tailored to the attention span and understanding of your little one. Help your child memorize Scripture. (My little 16 month old learned to say John 3:16.) Faithfully attend a doctrinally-sound, Bible-believing church. Model the Christian life for your child. Be a good example. Don't forget to pray for your child, for God honors our prayers.

I will begin Bible lesson posts within the next couple of days. Until then, pray for your children and tell them about Jesus.
