Teach the Bible, setting your heart to study, practice, and teach the Bible (Ezra 7:10). What if every children’s worker believed that they were raising up the next “Daniel,” the next “Esther,” the next “Stephen”, and the next “Priscilla?” Wow, what a bright future for our children!
Help your children discover their purpose & their calling. The servant-leader’s role is to raise up the next generation for the work of ministry – regardless of the unique career-field God calls the child, Ephesians 4:11-16.
Often we think of Paul as the “super-disciple-maker” training Timothy. Yes, Paul is a master disciple-maker 2 Timothy 2:2. Let us not forget though that Timothy learned the scriptures as a child 2 Timothy 3:15 “and you remember that ever since you were a child, you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.” When did Timothy learn the scriptures?
2 Timothy 1:5 “I remember the sincere faith you have, the kind of faith that your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice also had. I am sure that you have it also.”
