Of course, this is not to say that catechizing our kids will guarantee conversion. We believe that salvation belongs to the Lord. But by giving our children a biblical worldview, a thought-category and biblical formulation of the gospel, we are shoveling kindling into their little hearts so they’ll have everything necessary to be set ablaze with gospel truth, should the Holy Spirit see fit to light the match.
I am daily amazed at how my daughter points me to Jesus without being able to say His name.
Rest in the caring embrace of our Jesus, whatever your discouragement or fear. Rest in his embrace and find comfort, knowing that he will present you to the father.
My prayer is that we would be humble enough to confess our sins before our children so that we (and they) may be healed.
