Have you ever given any thought about how you will reach your kids for Christ?
How are you going to show them that the Christian life is the way to go?
You know what the Bible says, “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)
It sounds like it may be an easy thing to do. Just send your kids to church and their teachers will teach them about God.
But the truth of the matter is that reaching your kids for Christ can be a difficult thing to do.
If it were easy, then there would be less young adults departing from the faith and abandoning their Christian walks.
And to make things ever more complicated, you’re probably not sure about what tell your kids is the reason about why they should become Christ followers?
Are you going to ask them if they should make Jesus their forever friend?
Or how are you going to explain to them the concept of sin? After all, maybe they are too young to understand.
Fortunately, there is a solution that you can start doing right now.
The Answer to the Problem of How to Reach Your Kids For Christ
The short answer is, tell stories.
That’s right, tell stories from the Bible and do it without reading the actual pages. Do it from memory and make it fun.
I remember my grandma telling me stories from the Bible as early as when I was five years old.
She would take my sister and I under the blanket of her bed and she would tells us about David and Gloiath, Samuel, and many other Bible stories.
And I can remember those stories that she told us even till today, just 10 years later!
Lol, ha ha, I wish it were 10 years later :-).
It’s more like 30 years later.
If you want some inspiration on how to actually tell a Bible story to kids, check out how Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Christian Fellowship does it.
And if you’re just not the story-teller, then after the video I have another suggestion that you can do.
But What if You’re Not a Story Teller?
Most of us are story tellers and we can get better at telling stories if we’ll just practice.
But, if you are absolutely stuck and you’re absolutely convinced that you’re not going to tell Bible stories to your kids, then here’s the next best thing.
Read to them.
Read to them Bible stories in an engaging and colorful way and you can be sure that they will stick.
