With current studies revealing that about 75% of children raised in evangelical homes walk away from the Church once they move out of the house, it is urgent that we tackle this challenge immediately.
Believers need to help the children in our lives make the big leap beyond gospel narratives that highlight only Jesus’ previous earthly episodes—as important as those stories are—to bring them into the 21st century to meet the reigning Savior, the Son of God, who continues actively to be Lord of all TODAY.
After all, it was Jesus who reminded his disciples: “You must let little children come to me, and you must never stop them. The kingdom of Heaven belongs to little children like these!” (Matthew 19, emphasis added)
In other words, the kingship of Jesus and all that it entails is meant to be known and experienced, first of all, and above all, by our kids!
In this episode of his popular CHRIST TODAY Podcast, David Bryant talks about how to have this kind of impact on the next generation.
