I once told a beautiful girl that if she needs anything she should ask Jesus.Sitting under the canopy with a bulb at its centre, she nodded,smiled and continued playing.Seconds after she asked,"Halleluyah,where is Jesus"? I was quick to answer "Heaven...up...up"
She looked up and pointed at the bulb and asked "Halleluyah,is that Jesus"?
My cousin is a very inquisitive six year old boy.one day we were talking about God and the conversation went like this:
Boy:Aunty Halleluyah,why S's the devil stop being an Angel?
Me:Because He wanted to be like God
Boy: Is it bad to be like God?
Me:Well no but he wanted to take over God's throne.
Boy:Why wasn't the devil happy as an angel?Why did he want to be like God?
Me:I can't really say.He was proud.
Boy:Why didn't Gos forgive Him?
Me:(trying to end the Q&A) I don't know ooo
Boy: How can you not know? Are you not a child of God?
Silence! silence! Silence!
Boy:Aunty Halleluyah,how did God create Himself?
Me:(calls out to my elder sister) Please come ooo
" Go ye therefore, and teach ALL NATIONS,baptizing them in the name of the Father,and of the Son,and of the Holy Ghost "-Matthew 28:19
Our minds often wander as far as the Himalayas when we think of all nations. We think of people who are lost, people who are lost people living in remote places
That is where we are wrong.
Apart from the fact that our Sunday school teachers tell us to preach to friends in school and neighbours, we have been neglecting a very important nation.
The nation of Little Feet - The kids!
It is not just about taking them to church on Sunday or packing them to midweek services. It is not about family altar. It is not about children's day or bible recitation. It is not about being taught CRK in school. It is about an individual to a kid.
Kids nowadays become adults before 8. They are bright and can grasp anything. What are we telling them really? Everyday they watch cartoons and we see them behaving like their favourite characters. They want bags with superman on it and all. We haven't told them about the greatest 'super being' ever. We haven't taught them to act like him. Do we go out for kids evangelism? Have we seen kids that boldly walk up to the sick and heal them? No! We don't think it is their thing. We don't think they can receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
My ex-neighbour's son told his pregnant mother that she would have agirl and she did.
We've not told kids they could speak and it would happen.
They are not growing to see Christ as cool and wonderful. When these kids become teens, we start bombarding them with Christ and don't do this or that. Our mindset is that Christ should be understood from 12and above. They are growing with religion and not relationship. They are growing with the church and not with Christ. Let us put Christ in their video games, their cartoons, their books. Kids grow with an open mind and a free heart. Introducing God to them at that age will be great. Let them see Christ as their friend. You'll be shocked at the imagination they have of Christ if you ask them to draw hi. The nation of Little Feet is waiting for you to teach them how to have faith and walk on water. Don't think the devil has no interest in kids, he does.
This also applies to the feet that have walked worked for years. The elderly form a nation. Let us tell the elderly about Christ. Theyay not be saved but you think they are saved.
