Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, “Hear the word of the Lord: Behold, the days are coming, when all that is in your house, and that which your fathers have stored up till this day, shall be carried to Babylon. Nothing shall be left, says the Lord. And some of your own sons, who shall be born to you, shall be taken away, and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon.” Then Hezekiah said to Isaiah, “The word of the Lord that you have spoken is good.” For he thought, “Why not, if there will be peace and security in my days?”
2 Kings 20: 16-19
If you are a parent do you live your life so you will have peace and prosperity irregardless of what it might mean for your children? Do We Over Protect Our Children?
If you are a Children’s Pastor/Director do you run your children’s ministry so the kids want to be there today but you haven’t given serious consideration to what they really need today to walk with God into eternity?
CHUCKY CHEESE CHILDREN’S MINISTRY
Kids love it! Today they love it and have fun. However, there is no lasting change, the church isn’t essential to them, it is fun while it lasts. Sadly it is too much like going to Chucky Cheese and the day will come when they grow out of it. Children are entertained they aren’t discipled.
One day we will stand before the Lord of lords and the King of kings and He will judge us -
- as a parent
- as a Children’s Ministry Leader
- as the Senior Pastor of a church
- as a member of the Family of God
If Jesus became angry with His disciples because they minimized the children’s need to know Him how does he judge us?
Each person in the Family of God is called to play a role in the discipleship of children. O Israel – a call to all who walk with the Triune God.
Can you imagine what would happen if The Family of God took seriously Jesus’ challenges and warnings in regard to the discipleship of children? A sleeping giant would be awakened.
