We’ll go to the lion within us, as a podcast, serving Christian man who a hungry to be the leaders they’re predestined to be. I’m your host, Chris Granger, Ms. Jennifer pan. All right. Gas for your spiritual kickoff this week, we’re going to be talking about the area itself and the topic. What are we talking about?
You only get 18 summers now. What are we talking about here? We’re talking about being a dad, being a dad till they’re 18 years old. Yeah. They are your responsibility after that. Quote-unquote they’re there, they’re an adult, but she, you know, when you think about it in that context of 18 summers, it really hits home.
It makes me think. And I’d say what, we will have a guest this week. I’ll talk about that in a minute. Let’s go really unpack what that 80 summers looks like. So the scripture that I want to get us kicked off for SQL this week, third, John one, verse four. I have no greater joy than to hear my children walking into.
That’s a beautiful verse. I have no greater joy than to hear about your walking into the truth. So John was actually writing this to guys and then he, and he actually had children. He was speaking of here of walking into truth, all the blood ball Childs, children of Christ, no children of God. So I mean, that’s, that’s, that’s the children, he was speaking.
He, wasn’t literally talking about his children there, but, but Christians. Right. And that’s beautiful because it’s, you, you know, if you’ve decided. To follow Jesus. You’re a child of God, that’s it? So it’s a great book to read. And, and I tell you what guys, when you start it’s full of, it’s packed full of wisdom.
It’s painful. And it’s like, and it’s really small. You can sort of leak it. Literally redisent at five minutes. I mean, it’s, it’s one page of my Bible. Uh, he addresses some really interesting things to this book. He addresses. And the church is in a lot of conflict. So things were really getting out of hands with wicked words.
And there was some shunning going on where people were being shunned from the church at John, he just says this. He says to registrate, the one who does good is of God. And the one who does evil has not seen God. I mean, that’s just a mic drop moment. Right. John has a lot of those and I’ll tell you what guys want to start thinking about that.
It made sense. Your hand pack, you know, Think about the verse that we’re focusing on. There’s no greater joy than to hear my children that are walking in truth, key word in his verse truth. Okay. What is truth? It’s the truth of the gospel is walking daily with the Lord. Demonstrated a fruit of spirit was superior.
Spirit, love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control Gabrielle show all those each and every day. And you had to fully submit to Christ. Now here’s something I want you to consider about this. It speaks about children, but our kids get only learned this from your walk.
Your walk is what’s going to have an impact. Yes. We want them walking into truth. We’re going to have great joy, but your walk that’s, what’s going to impact, it’s not the church’s responsibility to raise your kid. Let’s say that again. It’s not the church’s responsibility to raise your kid, period. You know, it’s.
Camps or special events that are a path out of the pet salvation. They are, they offer some people saw people come to Christ at those events. Those events are great. Thanks, but do not hang your hat on the church. Be the only voice of truth in regards to Jesus, to your children, you’re missing, you’re just missing completely missing the opportunity to lead your family.
You know, you have to truly walk the way John’s talking about. You have to. And the truth every day. And those kids are watching your sons, your daughters, they’re watching, they’re seeing what, what’s your, what’s your walk looks like. They’re seeing if you, if you’re showing the fruit of the spirit that comes out and every day is to everyday gas, it’s not some.
It’s Monday through Saturday and Sunday. That’s what they’re looking at. And they, if you want to teach them the truth, you need to live that truth each and every day. Now, now maybe get some of you guys uncomfortable, but that’s okay. Allow within us. We’re supposed to get uncomfortable. We’re supposed to speak truth.
And that’s what I’m doing to you right now. Okay. So let us know, how can they do this? How can you let your kids see you in a truth? Well, first of all, they need to see you spending time in the word Bauma. Do your kids ever see you read the Bible? If they don’t. They need to see that as important to you, they need to see you leading family devotions.
Oh, well, I don’t know enough about the Bible. They may ask questions that I don’t know. So what don’t let those excuses get in the way, lead your family. You need to be in a woman in the word together. You need to worship together. You know, it was the last time your kids ever seen you worship. Think about that.
We’ve prayed together it last time, pray together. And not just a regular before the meal, prayer or bedtime prayer until I truly sit down and pray and lift up specific requests, praise him for what he’s done for you. Has that ever happened and is do these consistent daily acts guys that they’ll start to learn, the dots will start connecting and they’re going to see what the truth is, right.
And they’re going to mature as they mature. They’re going to you’re you’re going to be doing your part as a leader. To ensure that they’re following in the right path and that path of truth, because the only way they’re going to be able to discern false and what’s bad, and what’s, what’s inaccurate is to know the truth and it know the truth comes from you.
So I noticed versus all about, you know, having greater joy than to hear my children walking in the truth, but that doesn’t happen by mistake. That is intentional acts to get your children walking in truth. You can do a gas. I’m not saying it’s easy, you can do it, but it takes intentionality. So show, show them, you walk into truth.
And from there, great, thing’s going to happen. All right, guys, this is your spiritual kickoff for this week. So what to expect on Wednesday? Come back. I have a special guest on Wednesday that has revolutionized family life. He is working hard every day to help you enjoy the family more and to help the average parent.
But. Better down the sink success at work with success at home. And I’ll tell you what, you only get 18 summers. When you start thinking about it, in that context, you’re going to really like the message that he is going to bring. So there’s a big one, always real hope you guys get there. So the question I want you to think about this week, when was the last time you spent a whole day holiday alone with your child though?
Electronic devices while I joined a fun activity in may. So holiday alone, no devices, just you and your kid, no electronics, nothing but an activity and conversation. That, that question makes you squirm. You found the right show. You found the right episodes because this week we’re going to talk. We’re going to really get practical ways that you can lead into this and have more meaningful connection.
One-on-one time in conversations with your kids. Because if you’re going to show the truth, you’re going to teach them the truth to walk into. You’re going to have to have those moments. They’re going to have to really be intentional. All right, guys, if you liked this spiritual kick-out share with other people, you know, we’re, we’re all about serving other people here.
