We are called to change the world!
Jesus gave us the Great Commission to make disciples of all the nations. We are on a mission!
That mission begins at home!
We have a call to impact our children by introducing our little ones to Christ and teaching them His ways.
Once they know Christ, we teach them to change their world for the glory of Christ.
How do we that? How do we raise world changers?
Keep Your Eyes on the Prize
Stay focused on your goal of raising world changers.
Don’t be focused on lesser things or get into survival mode.
We want our children to get a good education, to be healthy, to have friends, to marry, to be happy. However, even more, we want our children to love Jesus and change the world for His glory.
When you feel like you focus is too small, ask God to keep your focus on the right thing.
Pray This Bold Prayer
You can start each morning with a simple prayer: "Thank you, Jesus that you love my children and have entrusted them to me. Please help me to raise them to love You and partner with You to change the world for Your glory."
Yes, that's a simple prayer, but not so simple when God answers it!
Watch out! Pray that prayer and get ready for an adventure!
Ordinary Days, Extraordinary Opportunities
Keep the focus every day on Jesus.
If something is lost, pray and ask Jesus to help you find it. If you drive by an accident scene, pray for those involved in the accident. If anyone is having a bad day, pray and ask Jesus to change the person from the inside out.
Every day, pray with your children to have opportunities to be a blessing to everyone around each of you. Share with one another ways that you showed love and kindness to others. Praise your children for noticing others’ needs and meeting them.
Raising world changers starts with walking close to Jesus and being a world changer yourself. You can read “How to Be a World Changer” here.
