What Do My Children See?

I can write with all honesty that I am a Christ follower. I am not always the best Christ follower but I know my sin is forgiven and I have a relationship with Christ....and it all started because of... I am fortunate I have a rich and long history of family members who follow Christ and I truly believe that if it were not for them I might have a different life and future.

I remember my dad recounting memories of how he went to church with his grandfather on a wagon being pulled by a horse.

I remember seeing my grandfather and hearing him preach.

I remember seeing my grandmother's bible that was fallen apart from continual use.

I remember seeing my dad sharing Christ with others.

I remember hearing my mom praying behind closed doors in her bedroom.

Now I am thinking...what will my children remember.

Have I done enough that my children are encouraged to walk with Christ?

Do my children see me act Christ-like in circumstances outside of the church?

In 2 Timothy The Apostle Paul encourages Timothy through a reminder of his faith heritage to keep going.

I long to see you so that I may be filled with joy, clearly recalling your sincere faith lived in your grandmother Lois, then in your mother Eunice, and that I am convinced is in you also. Therefore, I remind you to keep ablaze the gift of God that is in you.

I am challenged by the words of Paul to be a reflection of Christ that my children can see.
