#TakeFaithHome – April

Bring Faith Home 3

“Every Imperfect and Normal Family wants their kids to turn out right. So, we establish goals for character development and try to create an environment where our kids can mature… Unfortunately, our ‘good’ objectives might have absolutely nothing to do with the gospel of Jesus Christ.”

This is a quote from a blog post written a couple years ago. You may be familiar with it, “How to Raise a Pagan Kid in a Christian Home.” This post may come across as a little dramatic, especially if you only look at the title. However, the heart of the post makes a great deal of sense.

In a conversation the author has with Phil Vischer, Phil says:

“Our gospel has become a gospel of following your dreams and being good so God will make all your dreams come true.”

Being good is good, as is minding your manners, and caring for others – but none of those things requires God. Our children need to grow up learning over and over again how desperately they need God.

The influence of the world on how we view and live out our faith can seem overwhelming, but nothing overwhelms God. He has sent us His Spirit to help us live and disciple others into His Kingdom. As we raise our kids lets not just raise them to be good citizens of America. Lets disciple our kids through our brokenness into Christ’s Kingdom and Family.

Here are some activities that you can do together as a family this month! The first week of activities will be a great review of Easter and make it easy to step into these faith forming activities together as a family. If you need me to print this for you, just email me (Jason) and I will be glad to help with that.
