Holy living brings your children closer to God because a desire for God’s holiness is also desire for God. A holy life attracts God and paves the way for a deeper and more intimate relationship with God. The connection between a holy life and intimate relationship with God is well expressed by King David in Psalm 15: 1-2
Also, teaching children that God is holy, pure and perfect in every way, will build in them an unshakable foundation for a...
Children learn faster from their Parents’ attitude and ways of life than from any other source.
Therefore, as Christian Parents, we must demonstrate to our children by our practice and precept that a person’s worth is not in the material stuff he/she is able to amass or the fat bank account he/she owns; rather, it is in positive influence one has on others.
As Christian Parents, you must seek to demonstrate the lifestyle of giving to your...
Faith in God is essential in our walk with Him. In fact, it is the basis of our relationship with God because without faith in Christ’s finished work of redemption, no one can be saved. Even after we are born again, we cannot please God without faith.
Faith is the key that grant us access to the divine treasury in times of trouble. With faith, Christian can go through life’s challenges triumphantly. Faith is absolute trust and total depe...
Unconsciously, some Christian Parents have bought into the idea of the fun-loving world that children should be preoccupied with fun, games and activities than with religion and relationship with God. According to them, teaching children about God and his holiness is simply too grand because their little minds cannot fully grasp it. Some others feel that once children make a profession of faith in Christ, then that’s enough, assuming that the t...

* She will receive the blessings of the Lord, and her child will bless and honour her.
For the child who fears the Lord;

Some people have argued that letting children know about the rapture and events of the last days is tantamount to scaring them. The truth is that no parents who understand the need for their children to take part in the rapture will deprive them of knowing about such an all important global event. You need to empower them with all available information about rapture so as to prepare them to partake in it.
Moreover, there is no better time to t...

A passport is a valid document that qualifies a person to travel from one country to another. But it's not enough to have a passport to travel; your passport must be valid with a visa before you can enter a foreign country.

This implies that no one can get to heaven without a genuine ...
