TITLE: LEAD YOUR CHILDREN TO JESUS FOR THEIR SALVATION
DATE: SATURDAY MARCH 13, 2021
TEXT: Matthew 19:13-15
KEY VERSE: John 14:6 ‘Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.’
God who is more powerful than Satan has given us divine instructions; follow them. Do not be lazy like that lazy man whose vineyard king Solomon saw. Rise up and do this job; otherwise, your hope for heaven will be a mirage. Rise up and train your children and listen to what the scripture says. Do it, do not respect the contrary decree of the Government of your nation. Be wise! The way of the wise is above to deliver from evil beneath. Be wise and deliver your children. Who visits your children? Who teaches your children? Who relates with your children? Who is a friend to your children? Monitor everything. God will help you. God who does not want you and your children to perish will stand behind you. He will put His angel in your house. You just need to obey God.
Lead your Children to the Lord Jesus. In today’s devotional text, Jesus is saying, “Bring those children to Me. Dedicate them to Me. Commit those children to Me. Why are you keeping them away from Me?” Bring them to the church. Why do you think that the gospel is not for children? Do not mind the noise they are making in the Church. The angels of God are there, taking care of them and helping them to pick one, two or three words from what the preacher is saying. Jesus is saying, “Bring the children to Me. I want to lay My hands upon them. I want to use them. I want to bless them. The kingdom of God is for them.” You have heard the testimony that a child of about six years was found in hellfire. The girl confessed that thought witchcraft she had killed eight people. Can you imagine a child doing that? God said, “Bring them to Me, I will deliver them, I will save them from sin.” Lead them to Jesus. Ask Jesus to come into their hearts. Let Jesus come into their lives and change them. He told you to bring them to Him. This is a divine instruction. Do not say my husband is the one hindering me. Take the child aside and lead him to Jesus. Do not say, “My wife is the one to do it.” You do it! The commandment is for you to obey. Do not mind how many times the child has been led to Jesus; continue to do so, until you see the evidence.
Thought for the day: Satan does not respect age. Lead your children to Jesus before Satan snatches them away.
Song for the day: Into my heart, into my heart, come into my heart, Lord Jesus…
Bible reading for the day: Deuteronomy 20-22; Mark 14:26-50
