- Hebrews 4:12 - For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
If you do not have the blessing of being able to share God's Word and why you believe it, with your grandchildren with your words, do so with your actions. Make sure they see you living what you believe. In 1 Peter 3:1 we read how Peter told Christian wives their unbelieving husbands could be "won over" by the way they acted - I believe this is true for our adult sons/daughters/in-laws and our grandchildren as well. Let them see God's Word lived out in your life. Create a curiosity in them where they have to ask how you are able to have joy, peace, love, etc. by the way you live and thereby giving you the opportunity to share your faith with them. And of course, pray for them as well.
God's Word is powerful. Live it in your life and as you are able, share it with your words. God's Word is the thing which God has promised will accomplish what He planned for it and He planed for faith to come by the hearing of His Word. The “key” for helping the children we love grow to walk faithfully with God is God’s Word.
