WHERE ARE YOUR CHILDREN?
Text ” John 15:16
“You did not choose me, I chose you… I have chosen you that you may bear fruits and that your fruits may abide… “
CHOSEN TO BEAR FRUITS.
This was the theme of the Mothers’ Day service I preached in Victorious People’s Assembly Aba last Sunday…..
One very important area we have been beairing fruits but have not been consciousmy ensuring whether our fruits abide, and where they are abiding is in the area of the “fruit of the womb”.
Psalm 127:3 tells us that children are an heritage of the Lord, and the fruit of the womb his reward (legacies).
ONCE YOU MARRY…
Once a husband and wife enter into marriage, you are automatically qualified, chosen and given the high privilege of bringing forth children children. Children that God expects you to nuture and train to abide in him and become generational legacies on this earth.
But how many of us are raising our “fruits of the womb to abide?
To abide means to accept or act in accordance with a rule, decision or recommendation. Now,what rules, principles, values are you raising or have raised your children to accept or adhere to?
To abide also means to stay fixed, remain in a given or recommended condition or location.
So, you have raised your children, but where are they abiding? In the world or in Christ? In sin or in righteousness? In the ways of God or in the ways of the world? Living for God or living for money and possessions?
That’s the question, you see! A question that all parents must give a thought to… And be ready to answer when God comes asking….
