There is nothing more important for your family than to learn God’s Word together! It tops college savings!! God’s Word is basic literacy for LIFE! Don’t leave this important job to anyone else…it’s like packing your own parachute. You want to be sure it is packed to save your life and the lives of your family members.
“Train up a child in the way they should go and when they are old they will not depart from it “Proverbs 22:6
I pray and minister daily to young people who are depressed and even suicidal. Most of their problems could have been avoided if they had had a strong family practice of learning God’s Word, praying and singing gospel songs together. They NEED to know that the God of the Universe loves them and Jesus died to pay for all their sins and mistakes. It is sad to see how many think they are no longer worthy of God or able to be forgiven.
None of us earns our way to Heaven. Grace for all believers is what Jesus brought to us as an UNCONDITIONAL gift. Does your family know this? I pray they learn it before temptation and heartache comes. It is so comforting to know, when your children are old enough to go out into the world alone, that they have the wisdom and protection of God tucked away in their hearts and they know what to do with it!
You can make Family Bible and Prayer Power Time fun!!! Sing and dance about it! Just don’t leave it to chance in this terrible evil time in our world. Share the leadership! Kids will love holding everyone accountable. You can rotate titles like Family Choir Director, and Memory Verse Boss of the Week!
I am keeping a list here of the weekly memory verses from my Saturday Morning Family Devotions on Twitter. I hope you and your families grow rich in God’s Word this year! It’s transformative!One thing I know for sure is that families who learn the Bible and pray together, develop great communications. They know what is on each others hearts. I am selecting faith building and easy-to-memorize verses.
I recommend the following family sing along songs for learning all the books of the Bible together! Make it a contest ! Put up a chart! Go to a great Christian Concert when everyone has the Books of the Bible memorized!
