In Sunday School this past week our teacher asked us to think about our greatest fear in life. It was the first time I had really given it much thought but mine was that my children would die without knowing Christ.
My 12 year old daughter wanted to talk to my wife last night alone so they went off for about 10 minutes. Come to find out my daughter was asking her about being saved, what being Baptised meant, how do you get to Heaven, once you are saved can you lose it, etc. Amazing how quickly God works...I know it's just questions but I believe it's the first steps to a wonderful process.
I had a chance to talk to her this morning and explained as much as I could and explained it as simply as I could. I told her that our paster would be able to explain everything a lot better if she wanted to talk to him. She really wasn't too hip on that idea.
Is there a book out there that you can recommend that would either tell me the best way to communicate (or what I should tell her) what she needs to know or maybe a book for her telling her about what being saved and committing your life to the Lord means?
Thanks for any and all help.
Praise God for answering a father's prayers.
