Little Children

June 30, 2016

A young boy, William, 7 years old got saved at Daily Vacation Bible School recently. He was so excited and went home and told his little 3 year old brother, Isaac, that that he needed to give his heart to Jesus.

Isaac replied, “I will give my heart to Jesus someday but I need it right now.” (William and Isaac are the Curtis’ great grandsons)

Children, especially when very young, sometimes do not understand the terminology we use to present the Gospel. Just as a reminder to those of us who witness to make sure that the person we witness to understands how to be saved. 

The simple “3 Things God Can Not Do” is a wonderful way to witness to older children and adults but when talking with younger children we need to make sure they understand. Sometimes it is better to give a tract or witness to the parent and trust God to bring the child to Himself when the child is a little older. Always ask the Holy Spirit to direct you when witnessing.

Matthew 19:14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
