When I became a Christian, my only two children were already at the age to completely understand the Gospel. In fact, thanks to the teachers of the church we were attending, they got saved shortly after I did. Several years later, I had four more children- all of which came in the span of five years. It didn’t occur to me until I started reading to the first one that I would be responsible for showing these children Jesus.
This was completely new to me. I have to admit, I had doubts in my own capability. Eventually I realized that this was my problem. I was relying on my capabilities.
I can’t save anyone, but Jesus can. All I have to do is point them in the right direction and show them Jesus daily.
