Grace to you and peace from God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ. I trust this message finds you on top with all things under your feet.
As our children return to school for formal education, remember your responsibility to teach your sons and daughters the statues of the LORD.
Deuteronomy6 Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which the Lord your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it: 2 That thou mightest fear the Lord thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son’s son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged. 3 Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the Lord God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey. 4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord: 5 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. 6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: 7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. 9 And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
Remember, your parental presence is critical to your child, children, and grandchildren. You are themost important model, mentor, and motivator for your child. While your child is pursuing their public education, make sure you give them spiritual education and training. When the home, church, and school all speak with one voice, truth is established. In the mouth of two or three witnesses’ truth is found. As parents, let’s do our part in speaking God’s principles to our children all through life, in every space, and when any opportunities present themselves.
Let Rhema’s Children of Victory and New Generation Youth Ministry supplement your spiritual education with your children. We want to pass on our faith to the next generation. We desire to continue to connect to the next generation. We have a history of developing solid followers of Jesus Christ.
As fall approaches, many voices will begin to surface. Many agents will be repetitious. Many voices will come from credible people. Many voices will
be authoritative. God’s voice needs to be greater, as repetitious, and authoritative as these other voices to the next generation’s life.
We are in this together! Let’s do this together! Let’s build the next generation!
