Why is Child Evangelism Important

Do you believe that children are the most important part of a church? They have the most innocent,  open and pure heart. Delilo of International Network of child Ministry said , "What is rooted in the heart of a child is almost impossible to uproot in the life of an adult". I truly believe that statement. I have mentioned in a blog post,  The Importance of Life-giving Words to our Children, how important it is to speak life in our children. How we speak , becomes their inner voice. 

It is also known how Jesus Christ loves little children. You can read the book of  Matthew 19:14. I invite you to read it and reflect on that. The little children are important and loved by Jesus, those little children that makes us tired, grumpy at times and can push us to our limit. I am telling you all of this real mom feelings because first they are normal, parents are NOT perfect. Second, I understand that in the midst of hard parenting, we are also tasked to help them develop into decent human being. My question for you is, "What and who exactly do you want your children to become"?




Me and my husband's answer will be: We want our children to grow up to know and love God. We want our children to know the reason why Jesus came and the message of His death. We want them to make mistakes and learn from it. We want our children to understand grace, forgiveness and courage. We want them to excel in whatever their hearts desire. We want to lead by example and not conformity. In fact, I can go on and on. 

As parents, Child evangelism starts in your own home. You can also pay attention to how your church handles their resources with their children ministry. 

"When you look at most churches–their programming, their staff, and their budgets–it appears that children must first become prodigals, then we will go about putting together elaborate programs and events to save them" -- Damon DeLilo (INCM).

You can have devotional nights before they go to bed. You can the importance of family devotionals HERE. During Summer, you can sign them up for Vacation Bible School. Give books, devotionals, toys that lead them to the Lord.  If your child loves play dates, invite and reach out, have a craft night. Pinterest has a plethora of Bible-based crafts. Most importantly, let us strive to lead by example. Trust me, I know it is not easy. This is by far, the hardest part I think. Just take comfort knowing that you will not be alone on this journey. Parenting is not a single parent job, not even a two parent job. In my household it is three..me, my husband and the Lord. In raising our children, there are things that we are not in control, things that we can not understand and things that we can not change. Only God can.
