Jesus said Let the little children to come unto me. Don’t stop them. For of such is the kingdom of God. Here’s a great way to share the gospel with your grandchildren; give them a copy of their own salvation/gospel Bible verses.
13 And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. 14 But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. 15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. (Mark 10:13–15)
Sharing the gospel with the Littles
This is the first post in a series on Instilling the Gospel into my grandchildren
My longing, my desire is that my grandchildren come to the Lord. He alone is The Way, The Truth, and The Life! Christ is our only hope and our children and grandchildren (our families) are the only “thing” we can take with us from this world.
Jesus is the greatest example of loving children and letting them come to Him.
Many times children have told they are not old enough or would not understand. Now who decides that? Where in the Bible does it give a specific age?
I know children personally who have been 2 years old and realized they were a sinner and needed Jesus as their Savior.
Giving a personal set of Salvation Bible verses to a child is one way we can share the gospel with the littles.
They don’t have to be your own littles. They can be your children, your grandchildren, your nieces and nephews, your neighbors – we need to just look around; there are children everywhere and probably many of them are looking for love and attention.
We can be an instrument in leading them to Christ, the one who will never stop loving them and never leave them. Let’s pray for opportunities and diligence in doing this.
If you’d like the set of verses that I made you can sign up below and I’ll send you a free printable. Or go to the Word of God and put your own set together and then print them and present them to a child.
Take time to go through each verse and explain and as the Lord gives opportunity and continue to instill these verses into their minds and hearts. Then one day you’ll have the delight of seeing that child accept Jesus as their own personal Savior. There is no greater thrill!
