Our infants, children and
teens need to reach out to God and make a vital connection with Jesus in
order that the Holy Spirit can have access and permission to transform
their dispositions. We want our children to be obedient, helpful, happy,
kind, and desire to do right.
But all too often we parents are without Christ, attempting to lead our
children to the narrow way in harshness and anger or in sentimentalism
and permissiveness of the human flesh. Friends, every such effort and
method must fail. Have you experienced it?
To correct this, our children need a parent that is continually abiding
in Christ, has a vital connection, has union and communion with Him, and
is at that moment surrendered to do God's will. The parent in this
position then leads the child to a surrendered position before Christ,
and the Holy Spirit can then transform his disposition.
This series is intended to make clear our part, parents, in cooperating
with heaven that the miracle of a heart transformation is not only done
in Christ, but is a daily matter in all circumstances of life. We need
to keep our children under the influence of the Holy Spirit instead of
under the influence of self and Satan.
