Helping The Next Generation (Part 3)
God's Word is to be the most important thing in a Christian's life. As we teach the next generation about God, we need not forget that the Bible is the most crucial tool in a Christian life that instructs, guides, and strengthens us. God said to Joshua that, "This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success." God not only wants us to read His Word but to hide it in our hearts and apply it to life. We must teach the next generation not to forsake God's Word, but to apply it to their lives daily. His Word gives wisdom, comfort, success, and direction, and they must hold fast to the Word of God. It is God's spoken Word to us that applies to our daily lives, and just as He told Joshua, the only way we will have success in the trials and battles we may face is through the power of His Word.
For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children: That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children: That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments:
Psalm 78:5-7 (KJV)
