Are you teaching what you believe?

This post weighs heavy on my heart today for 2 reasons.  The first is that I had the honor of leading a little girl to Christ last night.  The second is that I am praying for a little girl that is dying of Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever-she got from a tick bite.  It really got me thinking.  Are we really teaching our kids what we believe?  Once they reach the age of accountability, they can actually go to Hell if they died.  That is such a scary thought.  I know too many people that proclaimed their love for the Lord, only to raise their children in a secular environment.  I always wondered if maybe they truly aren’t saved, or if they just really don’t care that their children could very well end up in Hell for all eternity.  Whatever the reason, I pray that if you are saved, that you are trying to lead your children to Christ.  We never know how long we have with each other on this earth.  I don’t want anyone that I meet to end up in Hell.  It’s so simple to live a godly life.  It brings joy and peace even when others see hopelessness.  Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God”, Romans 6:23 “ For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 10:9 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”  We ALL have sinned BUT all we have to do is accept Christ’s free gift of salvation!  It’s FREE!  All we have to do is believe that Jesus died on the cross to save us and rose again from the grave and is preparing a place for us in Heaven.  That’s it.  It’s so simple, and yet so many “Christians” aren’t teaching it to their children.  Please do not put it off.  Share Christ’s love with your children and your friends and family.  It will be too late after they die, don’t put it off.  And while you are sharing the love of Christ with them, make sure you are living it.  We show our true belief in our actions, not just our words.

*If you truly are a child of God, please stop and say a prayer for this precious little girl Emilee.  She is fighting for her life right now.  What a blessing that she has loving, godly parents.  God is good all the time and He will carry us through our trials and bring us joy in the midst of our suffering. (This is a picture with her twin brother.  They are six years old.) **Update, little Emilee went home to be with Jesus.  Please keep her family and friends in your prayers.**
