So you say you are going to church this Sunday. It is time to get your fill of the holy spirit, and you have not been to church for a long time. You are so convinced that you will go that you also decide your children will attend as well.
When you tell your kids you are going to church this Sunday; you get resistance. You tell your child that going to church will be good for them.
Then, Sunday comes, and you decide you are too distracted, or tired to go to Church, but you will go soon. What kind of message are you sending to your child? Are you honestly able to say you put God first in your life?
Going to church this Sunday to be a “Good Person”
Do you consider yourself a “Good Person,” or even a “good Christian?” Would the Bible describe you as a “Good Christian?”
Say you are going to church on Sunday, and when Sunday comes, you are in Church. Do you believe that going to church on Sunday is enough? Are you going to start reading scripture, and praying daily?
Do you think it is important for your kids to go to church on Sunday? If so, what do you expect your children to gain?
And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near. – Hebrews 10:25 – NLT
Don’t get me wrong; I hope you will go to church on Sunday, especially if you tell your children that they are going to attend and that you think it will be good for them. Telling them, you are going to go, and then not going an awful message to send to influential minds.
Having your kids attend church doesn’t mean that you need to tell them what to believe. They will learn to develop their relationship with Jesus on their own. Give them the opportunity to develop the relationship and be a good example.
