The Talk

Long before a parent needs to have “the talk” with their child they need to discuss God with them.

A father should tell his son(s) and daughter(s), we have one Father, even God in Heaven, and ask the children to call himself by his first name, rather than father or dad. Matthew 23:9 KJV.

As soon as a child can comprehend who God is, tell him or her about Jesus, the only begotten Son of God who died on the cross for our sins and lived to show us how to live by following his Holy Father, our Father.

Conversations with children should include informing them of the Ten Commandments and the statutes and precepts of the Lord. I don’t necessarily think you need to go into detail about what adultery is, but a careful conversation on adultery might make “the talk” easier at a later date.

Keep in mind “the talk” probably needs to take place earlier than you think. Kids pick up a lot from what’s on television and at school.

When your child is ready, let them repent of their sins and be baptized in the name of Jesus. Mark 16:16

Only by frequent conversations with your children will they be able to make it to Heaven. Remember that children key off what they see. If you live righteously you can teach your children to live likewise!

Defined by the Naysayers

Recently a preacher on TBN said, it’s not about religion it’s about relationship with Jesus Christ.

What an excellent definition of religion. My religion is my relationship with Jesus Christ.

And yes it comes with rules such as the Ten Commandments found in Exodus 20. It is full of rules and regulations and love. Love to teach me those rules and regulations. Love to die for me and love to help me live.

For once the naysayers have it right. Build a relationship with Jesus by keeping the Father’s will.

To know the Father’s will read, study, and live it out by the example of the Holy Bible. A.K.A the Word, A.K.A Jesus Christ!
