Do you want the Bible to come alive to your kids? Do you want the Bible to not only be an amazing history book of what God did, but for your kids to learn, discover and find out who God is and who they are through Him?
The way to discover these things is to spend time in the Word of God. It takes study, meditation, prayer and ultimately a heart that wants to know Jesus more.
As parents, our responsibility is to disciple our kids to be followers of Jesus. This includes teaching, training, equipping and bringing them up in the ways of the Lord. Our children are to have their own personal relationship with our Creator.
Teaching Kids The Bible
Part of discipleship is to teach our kids that we are students of the Word.
A student engages, studies and devotes themselves to learning. No one can be a student for your kids; it’s up to them. Though, how we approach studying the Bible with our kids is crucial.
What we don’t want to do is make the Bible seem dry and uninteresting where all we do is regurgitate its information. If our approach as parents is this, you can be sure your kids are feeling the effects of dry learning.
The Bible is filled with adventure, wonder and mystery just like our lives; it’s about personal transformation and development in us so that we can impact, affect and serve others with the love of Jesus while doing what Holy Spirit says.
Bible Study For Kids
When your child is a baby, toddler and preschooler, your first route in teaching them the Bible is simply by reading it. By this, your kids get to know who God is, what He does and the people He works in and through.
As our kids get to know the Bible stories well by reciting and narrating them to us, our next step is to transition to Bible reading and incorporate methods of Bible study.
